Once again the illiterate teachers in bartow county dropped the ball. The graduation rate this year is 67%.
That is embarrassing. When will the get rid of these bartow county teachers who are so stupid they cannot
teach so we can bring in qualified teachers from other counties? All this means is more teens lined up for
Jobs at waffle house and bojangles. That's all they're qualified to do.

Teachers and parapros, you are disgusting.

I tend to think it is more what they have to work with rather than the teachers themselves.

I think this is more a reflection of parents than teachers. Learning starts at home and you can't expect teachers to raise your children. As a parent there should be consequences for not doing well in school. If you cannot prevent your child from dropping out of school as a parent, what makes you think a teacher can do any better. PARENTS NEED TO DO THEIR JOBS!!! Teachers do what they can with what they have. And no, I'm not a teacher, I would never make it in that profession.

In my opinion for too many years now "parents" (some not involved in "their children's" lives beyond sperm donor) have fallen into the trap of tying to be their children's "best friends". Parents aren't best friends to children they are PARENTS. The are supposed to be the primary educators in their children's lives. Teachers are their to "educate" them by showing them how to learn, study and pass tests. The job description never said that they were supposed to raise any ones children

so since the graduation rate stays the same in bartow county, you are saying each set of students
every year had bad parents, sorry it's on the teachers. why is city school 86% grad, rate. and they have a lot more minorities than county.

As someone familiar with the school system (no I am not a teacher), you would be amazed at the idiot parents that are in Bartow County. These kids are not first generation stupid! The parents are much more involved in their own activities to be bothered with their children. Most of the time, it's the parents that are letting the kids down.

Regardless of parent or background a GIGO tea her could make a difference. It all begins with a good leader. If the principal has low expectations so does the teacher. It starts at the top.

As I thought, teachers will always blame it on the parents. As someone pointed out, it's the same ration every year so that means every generation of parents are at fault. And as always, it's NEVER the teacher's fault. That's right, teachers, blame the parents every time.

Beach Bum, you would be amazed at the idiot teachers out there.

My advice, either send them to the city schools or get them the hell out of Bartow County so they'll have a fighting chance.

Right on. what idiot blames every generation of failing students
on the parents. so the parents of the kids in the city schools are just the opposite even though we all live in the same town.
sorry, bartows poor results speak for themselves, from the superintendent on down. If you love your kid don't send them to the county schools.

A lot of parents in Bartow County aren't educated and they don't place a high priority on education. Kids see that their parents didn't finish school, so they don't think they need to either. Only you can't get any job (maybe not even flipping burgers) now without at least a high school diploma.

It starts at the TOP!!! Every child can learn. If the principal does NOT enforce good teaching it will not happen. If people on this topic were concerned enough SPEAK out. Go to Board Meetings. Nothing will ever change unless your voice is heard.

It is far less about the teachers than it is about the students. Almost 7 out of 10 graduate. Not bad considering the gene pool they have to work with and the lack of caring on the part of some parents. Are there incompetent teachers? Sure. Not nearly as many as there are incompetent students though

As I've said over and over, teachers blame the students and the parents. Always. The only solution is to transfer your children out of the county. If you don't, they'll never get a decent education.

I can turn those statistics around, too. 3 out of 10 students don't graduate. That is pathetic. Not in this county, though, it's something to applaud.

metaphysical,
you have shown you are an idiot. You must be a county teacher. when I went to school it was maybe 2 out of 200 that did not graduate. It sure is damn easy to blame it on the students. You
are a loser and thank god my kids go to the city schools. Maybe you forgot about the parents that do care and try, but when you get to middle and high school you have unqualified people that call themselves teachers that could not get a job doing anything else.
