Caught a segment on the 6:00 News on Channel 4 last night. Camden Fairview Schools was featured. Didn't look good. Interviewed an African American lady who has transferred her child to Harmony Grove due to the conditions at CF. Did anyone else see it?

Did not see the story but it does not surprise me. I have spoken to more than a few CF parents who are unsatisfied with the education at this school. I myself attended and graduated from CF and it was a so/so school at that time. I think the biggest problem with CF schools is Jerry Guess. That is just my opinion and you can agree or disagree. That is your right.

Thanks Sincere!
Especially interesting is the idea that some "community members" feel their kids are "misunderstood" at school. What is that supposed to mean?

I agree. Most issues with the CF district are about race. Black parents feel their children are "misunderstood" when they are being held accountable for their behavior. The parent who sends her children to HG gave a reason of "because they don't give homework on Wed. night". I wonder if she ever thought about talking with her child's school in CF about that. The main reason people go out there is because the student body is majority white and majority white schools have better test scores regardless of teacher quality- bottom line. The best thing that could happen is for Ouachita County to have one district and desegregate all the districts equally. Then we will see which faculty is most skilled when the playing field is leveled. As for black faculty members, I think CF has excellent faculty members and administrators - both black and white. Give them your support and it will make a difference.

I am a HG graduate and I completely agree with you. I think it takes great skill to be an educator. I don't have anything against the CF school district. I just prefer for my children to go to HG because I did and I believe that I received a wonderful education. A comment that was made on another forum said that CF produces doctors and lawyers and HG doesn't. You can't say that just because someone became a doctor makes them better than someone that became an RN. They both take a degree and that may be the calling for that individual. I hope that each and every child everywhere gets a top notch education regardless of where they went to school.

My sons go to CF and they never have homework on Wednesday night. It is NOT a black/white issue that makes CF a bad school. The problem is that children are rarely held accountable for their behavior due to administration's fear of reaction from the community. Is Guess the problem? No, this community is the problem. We don't support the teachers who have to deal with our bad children and try to teach the ones who are at school to learn. We have a total lack of educational support in Camden, but we seem to always want to make it a racial issue. Black..white...who cares? When we stop focusing on placing blame and stop spending more money on football gear than textbooks, then we may go forward. And for those of you who keep harping on HGs test scores...you may want to revisit the Arkansas Department of Education's website where school test scores are posted. NONE of the schools in Ouachita County are doing well!

The CF school should release the percentage amount of bad kids then break that into race so we can see where the largest problem is.

Then for all bad kids we need a 3 strike rule and a harsh one. 3rd strike and you can't return to school.

ANYTHING disrupting class or after class harassing and fighting students. Oh and sagging jeans!

When I was in school we got our asses paddled for misconduct or indecent exposure (sagging jeans is just that).

However I do remember a funny moment at HGH in study hall Harold Truax pulled his wiener out. Back then it was funny I guess.

ok. sounds reasonable. the CF school district should create a special position for you to be in charge of identifying & getting rid of the "bad kids." right up your alley. plus you would have a regular pay check.
