Thank goodness we did not Vote to increase the size of the cafeteria at central school. But we build new class rooms and put a roof on fairview. School system wasting money thenclosing buildings down. School board needs to let go and get some commonsence. What about a long range plan.Citizens will keep sending kids elsewhere wake up and lower our property taxes.By the way where will the new charter school be built. I guess a new building sence you do nothing but abuse tax dollars.

You have right to express your opinion because that is the America way and especially around this small town with small minded and negative people like you. Your vote on not increase tax to build the cafeteria at central was just one of many when it come to Taxes to help the school district along with the City of Blytheville. You seemed to me to be a citizen with a nonchalant attitude and wishing that bad things happen to our Schools. Be honest with yourself you are what we called a HATER. I bet you don't have children or if you do they all grown and of course you wouldn't have any interest in what become in the future with any school here in our/your district. You should get your facts correct before getting on topic and not knowing the true. Why are you worried about 'where the charter school going to be'? Will you tell US why we should have build the schools across the interstate? Look like to me your ass backward than the school board. All citizens should be concerned about our schools here and the children. The school board members are made up of concerned citizen and try to make the best decision for our district and the children. Why don't you get off your butt and come out to the meeting and participate or try to partner up with other associates that are out there giving their support to the schools and be concerned and bring positive ideals to better our schools. Who said we had to many buildings? You get your thinking cap on and go back, we had a higher enrollement in the past so the buildings was not waste of tax payer money.

They just want to complain. Possibly as you said or their kids go somewhere else like Gosnell. People seem to really worry about this district but put their kids in others. Every time a kid goes to another district Blytheville loses money. Then everyone wants to complain about what the school does.
So What

No one here said anything bad about getting an education in Blytheville. What was said is the leadership is top heavy and cannot live within its means. Hell take the pay of the top 20 or so employees and look at the salaries. O yes and finally Sandy Hughey is gone sucking up 100,000 a year. Just another make your money off the citizens then leave the area bad mouthing it the whole way to west Arkansas. So don' t bitch at me with your cry baby waste. Get a grip like the Kipp school and live in your means.School system is as bad as walmart about leaving empty building for Others to take care of once you leave a neighborhood.

If you REALLY open your eyes and LOOK carefully, you will see it very OBVIOUS how pathetically Tax dollars are wasted by the school system.

This is a fact without any doubt. It is pathetic how much nonsense at all levels goes on and then they want more taxes.

And yes, I do have kids in school here.

It started out complaining about the 'BUILDINGS' that the school district has wasted tax payer dollars on, not no EDUCATION was mention concerning our kids. If you get the Bean HATEING out of your eyes and sit and read what been going on with our district or schools period in Arkansas you would know real facts what been going on great with our achivement and you can get ready because the district is on the run and no stopping us now. Our kids are doing great and have good trained teacher and not speaking about 'New Technology' that the kids are so excited and learning great and can't wait to get to the school to learn something new daily. If you care to get FACTS correct you can see yourself our kids are starting at the primary level been expose to what they will have to be equip for their future. AND to you who seeing our kids going to Gosnell horray for them or whatever they want to go. Our academic here at Blytheville schoold district is no comparison to the other surrounding schools. You know that yourself. Kipp not hating on it personally but I would not enrolled my kid there. If a child need special attention and you don't want to deal with the policy at our schools, you need to put them there. Also, I find that some of those kids need to be over there because some of them has attention span problem and spoil at home and the District ain't here for babysitting lil "Jack and Jill" so of you know that they have those kind of issues. You give them that ATTENTION AT HOME. The District concern about each child being able to learn and be responsible and able to have a good future.

They have a pay scale that they go by so I'm sure it is in line with the people they replaced and in some cases it is less. You can look on the schools website and see what each employee is making.

I wish people would excert just half the energy being positive about our schools and city as they are negative.
