My child was held back because they needed an opening for her grade. As a favor to someone. And she was held back and shouldnt have been. It's all who you know there.

Fort Bowman is and always has been a public school. There is no picking and choosing who attends. Names are picked by a lottery system then once your child is in, they are always in.. Class size has always been limited. It used to be 20 but they can go as high as 25. Most stay at 20.

You sound like a parent in denial and one that finds pleasure in bad mouthing others. How's that working for you?

If you are calling the students "bitches" how dare you call children names. And the "gurls" have higher aspirations than the "typical" Cahokia girls.

I won't disagree with you 100% however, how do you explain that the schools are failing if the teachers are so wonderful?

You say that as if ALL the responsibilty belongs to the teacher. Effort and responsibilty for education is more complicated. Here's how it should be 30%- students, 30%- family/parents, 30%- teachers, 10%- environment. When one of those components fails, it leaves the learner at a huge disadvantage. How do you teach a child that misses 30% of the school days? How do you teach a child when they come to school and announce their parent was just arrested/killed/missing? How do you teach a child when they come to school knowing they are homeless? How do you teach a child who gets no help or support at home with their school work? How do you teach a child with various social/economical/emotional needs that are not being met? How do you teach a child who needs glasses or to see a hearing doctor, yet no one takes them? I do not make excuses - this is reality. I believe most teachers do what they can - and continue to do more, even when they are told, "There's nothing more we can do." You would not believe the "hoops" teachers have to jump through to get help for students they know need it. I am an advocate of the "community school" concept. FULL time, on-site services: social work, counseling, tutoring, nurses/med techs, teachers, volunteers...etc... Leave the schools open later to give people the opportunity to use the services. The key to the success is to get the parents and families more involved. BTW - DCFS is useless unless there is a grave physical danger. It is useless to report "neglect" to them. Our state needs to do something with this agency that was created to serve and protect children.

At first I wasnt going to reply to your post and give you the satisfaction BUT..... Have you ever thought that one day you or a family member might need the help. Everyone is getting laid off and losing jobs. If you or a family member needed it I bet you would have a diff opinion. I can support my family also but if something where to happen its nice to know its there if I need it. And Im not talking about the people that abuse the system. But you cant help one without helping everyone in need.

So your kids go to school of choice? I hope your not teaching them to be prejudice like you are. That is something that is learned. And there are Afican American children that go to that school My child goes there too. And I have taught my child to love all people regardless of color. I am white and I have some really nice Afican American friends that I wouldnt trade for the world. Would much rather live next door to them then someone like you. You know YOUR WAY OF THINKING is whats wrong with our county. People are people.

Oops! Should have been a publicly-funded private school. My mistake.
You are correct it is govt. funded and they are chartered so they do not have to let anyone in. Which I am grateful. Disruptive kids need to go to the schools that have the funding to teach them. Being able to have a set of rules makes the difference between charter and public schools.They do not have to accept everyone. If you do not have students at FBA why do you care if they stay open. Trust me CSD gets its money for their schools maybe if they had the right people running the district the funds would be there for those schools. But when you have everyone sticking their hands in the pot there is nothing left to spend where it needs to go to the teachers and students and the buildings. I don't know about everyone else but I know for sure what I pay in taxes and never see any improvements!!!! How about refocusing your energies on where it needs to be the govt. not talking about people. What is the saying he who is without sin cast the first stone. What kind of lessons are we teaching are children by bad mouthing other human beings. Try walking in someone elses shoes before you start running your big mouths.We should all be proud that we do have choices on where we send our children and want the best for them ALWAYS. Set good examples not bad. If you want to make a difference it has to be by actually taking action not just talking the talk and not walking the walk. How about being constructive with better suggestions if you think that FBA is so horrible. I hope the best for them and that they are able to remain open.

Actaully I was brought up ARMY. Entire family. So when your on the move all the time you have a diff way of thinking about people. You have no family so you adopt family no matter what color they are. And you stick together. So that answer would be NO. I didnt live by all whites.......Now what.

Personally I do not have a problem with the school itself. My problem lays with those in charge of running it. It's great to have choices but when you have people who think they are a GOD and we should bow down before them & they treat some of the pearents & childern like dirt just because they can, that is where I draw the line.
If Karen Crum would have talked to me outside the school grounds the way she did when I was on school property I can guarantee you she would have been picking her dumb ass up off the ground along w/her fatass husband because what she said to me was slanderous and totally uncalled for.
Please bit*h you will be 6ft underground before you ever ever touch her!!
