The city Is already beyond hope. If Im correct Cooter accepts tuition. I see nothing wrong with parents sending their Kids to a different school system. Blytheville Is over run with poverty,drugs,crime. Parents should do whatever it takes to get their children out of this nightmare. Imo

What gets me are the parents that talk about supporting Blytheville since they own a business here but they all get together and send their kids to another State to go to school. You don't want to go to school here? Fine. Just stop with all of the support Blytheville talk and be honest about it.

They are all for supporting Blytheville until it is their turn to do so. Then they do what they want. And everyone knows who they are.

That's because ppl's children are a precious commodity, the most important commodity to them. Blytheville is a great school. The school is not the problem. It is the majority of the children in the district that have little or no
parenting. Ppl want their children to have access to other children that are motivated to learn, care about themselves and others, and safety. They want to feel that their children are safe. It is hard to do that when you are surrounded by ppl and their children who do not value and respect others. Just like you don't respect their right to choose what they feel is in the best interest of their children by coming on here and trying to stir things up. What is wrong with the community of Blytheville is not the school, but a community issue. We have very little community here. It is not really a black/white issue at all, except that that is our excuse. Blacks are angry at whites... Still stuck in the past, whites angry at blacks...again, over past issues. Blytheville's biggest problem is spiritual. Drugs, violence, and discontent all stem from a search for love in all the wrong places. So my friend next time you decide to get on here to try to stir the pot, maybe you should ask yourself, " What can I do to make a difference"? If community started to pull together, leave the past behind, and each person just do one act of kindness each day, we would start to see the change we are looking for in our
schools. It starts with one or two ppl and a lot of faith.

I never said I didn't respect their right to choose. They can do what they want as far as school choices. I just see it as hypocritical to TALK about supporting Blytheville but then DOING something else. And to me, paying tuition to send your kids somewhere else while telling everyone to do business with you because you are a Blytheville business is two-faced.

You want to send you kids somewhere else? Fine, just quit acting like you support Blytheville and telling others to do so in an effort to line your pockets. Just be honest about it.

Saying one thing and doing another. That's what I am talking about.

They PAY TUITION. I bet I know who u are. A certain Superintendent perhaps? Or maybe his wife? Get a clue. Blytheville schools suck and they're losing students to other districts and to KIPP because it's hard for kids who actually want to learn - The apes create too many distractions and disrupt the classes constantly. Ain't nobody got time fa dat!

Maybe they don't want the town to go under. After all, if you don't support Blytheville businesses, the whole town will eventually have nothing. When it comes to people's children, well they just all want the very best for their children. Don't begrudge them for that. It's not fair that Blytheville School District. It irks me to have to pay more for a house in Armorel District to send my child to school there, but then I realize that they are just doing the best they can with what they have. We all have a responsibility to do what we feel is in the best interest of our child. I also agree that we should support the business community. Afterall, the businesses are the ones that pay taxes for Blytheville School District to stay open. Find an avenue to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem.

What you said has a lot of merit, except for the last sentence. It starts with one or two people and a lot of faith? I am one and I know & see many each and everyday TRY to do acts of kindness....
However, it will take a HUGE amount of people to make a difference b/c one or two barely makes a dent, except in the life's of the one or two they actually help- Wouldn't it be Great if we could all stand together & make a real difference-? <Smile>

And for the record... There are hypocrites everywhere in this life. In this particular case, however, people really do want to support the
school district and businesses both. But then there are the children. That's not being hypocritical, that's being conflicted.

Cooter has got a waiting list of kids from Blytheville trying to enroll there

I heard ACTs at Cooter average around 26

What is Blytheville...12?

It starts with one. Ppl are always watching you. We set an example for others. Don't talk about our shortcomings, take notice of the good happening and you will see more good.:)
Prayer... Never forget the power of prayer.

Here's a thought to your hypocrisy statement ....

There is more than one way to support Blytheville, just because their kids go to Cooter doesn't mean they don't support Blytheville in other areas but since you want to focus on the funding of the school did you forget the taxes they pay because of their residence and their businesses still go to the school? The only thing the school doesn't get is the money from the state but neither does Cooter, that's why they pay tuition!

You should really think before you start crawling up on a soap box complaining. My kids went to both Blytheville and Cooter and I was a Blytheville resident. Cooter was worth every penny because the kids could focus on education and YES the ACT scores are higher!!!

I call bullshit. I doubt there are three students that have attended Cooter High School that have scored a 26 or above on the ACT during the last 10 years.

Well people talk about white flight! Look around people! THere are many wonderful African American children leaving and moving to other towns!
Can you support Nucor and not live at Armorel? Can you support Tenaris and your children not live at Armorel?

Most of the workforce live in other towns and states. I pay my taxes , and have no children in school.

People need to quit running others down for what they do with their children! Most people could care less about it! There are about 3 or 4 people who keep it going and really most people are just plain tired of hearing them talk it all the time!

I heard some don't even speak to friends because they send their children to other districts! Pretty sad that would seem to be more destructive of a community than where people send their children! It may make people not want to support Blytheville at all and leave the whole town!
