Franklin school district back before Washington school shutdown was a middle class 90 percent white school with engaged parents black and white. It always had good kids and great teachers and always performed well. Unfortunately, Franklin now is one of the worst schools performance wise. I believe it's because all the poor parents that feel like the world owes them something with their unsupervised kids ruined the school and the district. Well, you got a new school now, so I give it 3 years tops until it get's ruined too. Before everyone who reads this gets offended, please know I'm not talking about all of you. Some people have legit problems and circumstances that are poor, but you know the majority of them are lazy.

Franklin school is a crappy school because they, like many of the nations public schools, allow outside influences and programs to be perpetrated on the students, instead of teaching them.

I knew that Franklin was on the wrong track years ago, before Washington closed. Back during Clinton, I walked into the school, and there was a huge ass banner stating... "IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD".

The problem with Franklin are the good teachers retired and the new crop of SEMO trained social change teachers are having a negative effect upon the students and classroom instruction.

The curriculum is crammed with crap from outside agitator groups who want their agenda "taught" to the children, so they provide materials and instruction for the teacher to give the class. The schools get crap from sex education promoting homosexuality, green groups wanting their global warming agenda pushed, recycling and other nonsense crap.

No wonder kids cannot read, write, spell, nor, do simple math. They don't have the time, because their teacher has given them so much brainwashing crap to absorb instead of teaching them traditional subjects.

Hell, KFVS gave one of their teacher awards to a teacher who did crap in her class like let the kids make tacos for CINCO DE MAYO... a Mexican holiday... and it wasn't even a Spanish language class....

THAT is why FRANKLIN is crap.

What have any of you done to improve Franklin? No sarcasm, just an honest question. It DOES take a village to raise a child because we all need to be responsible adult role models for children. This is true especially if their parents are as bad as you say (and I think you're right). We need to be involved in these kids lives and show them how to behave, and show them some love and discipline. Discipline=love because it lets the child know you care. Their parents are apathetic, or unable to be involved enough if they are a working single mom. You think it's not your problem, but it's everyone's problem. Our society will continue to go downhill if we don't take it back.

Yes let's bash parents who are low income for the kids low performance. It's not all on the parents it's the school and the teachers as well. I know plenty of people who have kids in that school and they do well and yes they are low income. Do you even have kids in Franklin? If not then why are you even posting about it. If you don't like how things are going then take the free time you have to write on here and gripe and go and volunteer and help out the kids? Just a little advice.

I went to Franklin for 5 years then transfered to Clippard. It's way better today than back in the 70s. New building ect. Better pay for teachers is better students.
