Two thumbs up!

Of course there will be a ton of negative remarks because it may kill some people to say anything positive about anyone or anything. If you are going to dis it at least support your answers with actual facts.

Well, honestly I do believe they are ok in some ways and in others they blow. They have for the most part been all about the sports. It didn't matter if the jocks could not spell their last name as long as they could hit a basket or score. Before you go ranting at me for saying this, I have seen it first hand so you are not going to convince me otherwise so save your breath. They do not do much about bullying or anything along those lines for kids. Yeah they offer decent education for the kids that actually want it, but I suppose the other flaws will always stay, they always have. I am by no means saying ALL the jocks or sports kids, but some yes.

Honestly I hate the drama, it wouldn't be a bad school if everybody minded their own! Plus it wouldn't suck as bad if the school wasn't falling down around the students. The roof leaks when it rains, not a small leak, a river of water comes in. The ceiling tiles are mildewed due to this fact, and occasionally fall out of the ceiling. SOME of the teachers are OKAY and DO their jobs, others are just there to be there. As for the bullying, I agree. We have kids who have horrid family life's (by the way I am a student) and they struggle with stuff, only to get told do better without asking what the problem is. Yawns I agree with you(:

Sadly, the drama is found just about everywhere. It has always existed wherever you found adolescents but it is ridiculous now. Bullying has always been tolerated, if not encouraged, in this county.......at least with the males. After all, real men don't take crap off of anyone and dorks, nerds, etc. deserve to be pushed around. I was shocked, several years ago, when one of the teachers told his nephew (huge football player) to knock the snot out of some little wimp who had called him an uncomplimentary name. "You don't take $hit off of wimps in this family". Real role model, eh?

In most cases at this school bullies are praised by their friends and by their favorite teachers. Band kids, geeks, dorks, you name it, even the handful of mixed kids that we have get picked on by others. Ive seen several issues where the kids we 3x's the bullied one. This whole school needs to be done over. I was in a fight back in August because the teachers wouldnt help. I hated it, but honestly the school overlooks the small things.. One of the counselors told the 4 students "Sorry I cant help you. I have to get ready for this signing." Since when are the students who want an education be stuck in a second place because of a signing?? Yeah it may be important but still the school gets paid for the EDUCATIONAL SIDE not because they can throw a football around and slap each other on the butts.

Bear--I graduated from EC schools and it has not changed. If your child can fit in the cliques and the ones with the last name of the county then you have no worries. Otherwise, the drama here is still the same and it has not changed in 23 years. It fact it has only gotten worse. You dang sure don't fit in if you are trying to keep someone out of trouble. It is mostly about brown nosing around here and money. Schools just like mustang girl said some teachers do care but there are those that could give a rat's ass less, it is just a paycheck so what if they graduate barely knowing how to read..Good luck.

Bear- Your child will be safe. If he/she does not feel safe encourage him/her to talk to a counselor.

The problem is ignorant familes create ignorant kids. Nobody in EC is even remotely rich enough to be considered "elite". Even the ones with money are dumb asses!

My advice to anyone going to EC schools is this: Jocks always have and always will get special treatment. If you want you kid to be "special" make sure the make good grades and treat everyone fairly and don't take any shit off of anyone. It'd help to encourage them to participate in sports instead of band or choir. Better get them started early. This goes for any school though. My kid is starting t ball this year because in the game of life or "school life" as it's called you had better get them to be a jock early on. And not all jocks are assholes and not all of them are stupid either.

Oh and I understand the drama. The problem is that there is a large majority of students in the school system who come from less than desirable home lives who have parents who don't take care of them. Parents who beat their kids and don't give them proper nutrition or love aren't going to create kids who know how to act civilized. People like that have nothing better to do than to be assholes but really no one should pay any attention. After school they won't be anyone anyway. The rest are a bunch of churchy people who judge everyone who doesn't go to their church. Again, who are they? A bunch of ignorant people milling around waiting for Jesus to come back and in the meantime they just want to pretend they are better than everyone else because God loves them and they are going to heaven. EC is like the asshole of the world. Peoples brains in EC are puckered tight and won't let a damn thing in and when they open their mouth the only thing that comes out is bull shit.

What you are going to do when your kid starts dating one of these "God lovers"? I sure hope that it isn't one of my kids because I wouldn't want them to be around so much hate and anger. And way to teach your kid to be a follower by making them play t ball. I almost thought that is why you make fun of Christians for was for following something. You said yourself that make sure they get good grades, be fair to everyone, and to not take anything from anybody but if you make your kid play sports aren't you just contradicting what you feel or believe by saying you have to play sports to get along with people in this county. One last thing, I thought you said in another post that love is a chemical that the body produces not a feeling, get your story straight before you start telling other people how they need to act. I'm a born again Christian and wouldn't be if I had not met somebody from here and married them and they took me to church and I learned about everything. I didn't even want to leave the house for fear that I would get in a car accident and die and end up going to Hell. I was 19 when I got saved and I was pregnant with our first child. I got baptised in the creek in Nov, pregnant and never got sick. I know where I am going when I die and I only hope that you find your salvation also. You will be responsible for your children lives come judgement day. I do have one question to ask, why are you so against God and religion? Can you answer that with a thruthful answer or are you going to be rude like in all your other posts?

I would live in a shack in another county so that my kids could go to a 'good' school if I thought my kid was be mistreated. Why don't some of you start your own school since you have all the answers...in another county!!!

"these" god lovers? My kid won't be attending school in Kentucky. We are moving next year! YAY! I don't care who my kid dates as long as they aren't crazy about their religion. They can be christian, hindu, muslim...I don't care. Just as long as they aren't ignorant about it. I don't have any hate or anger, I'm a really happy upbeat person. With that said, I don't tolerate stupidity so if that is what you equate to anger then maybe you are stupid???? I'm not going to MAKE them play t ball. They are looking forward to "playing with other kids". There's not much of a selection of activities here. If they don't like t ball I won't make them go but I'll be damned if they sit around and do NOTHING. Atheletics is good for all sorts of reasons and if you want to talk about keeping kids out of trouble and helping their social skills just get them involved in atheletics. Plus, it's good to get exercise. YOu area fundamental christian because you probably had a screwed up life and you met someone that made you feel something you needed, LOVE. You then equated that to a religious experience but in reality all you needed was to be treated with respect and get out of a bad situation. As soon as you said you were a born again Christian I knew everything following that would be some bullshit. And yes love is a chemical reaction in the brain, as all emotions are. I'm not sure what is so contradictory about that but eh, you are just pissed at my post and you just want to run your mouth. Don't worry, my kid won't be going to school with a bunch of ignorant rednecks from Edmonson County. So rest assured your little Christian child is safe. They can go find someone ignorant from EC and live happily ever after. Probably they will buy a trailer right next to you, that's what people do in EC. No way anyone will move away is there?
