I would like to hear some feedback on what's being done to change the public schools in the Middle Country Schools.I for one am sick of paying taxes for the public schools when I don't feel safe about sending my kids there.Im paying taxes on top of tuition wich is very expensive.Why can't we get a break.Why do I have to keep paying for these broken down drug infested schools.You cant even use the athletic fields because they are horrible.They need God in these schools.It's really time for a tax rebate for those who pay tuition, because they don't want to send thier kids to this dump of a school district.

I couldn't agree more.Middle Country is really the pitts.Need more parent involvement,better teachers and staff most not all are there for a paycheck not the students,and we certainly need cleaner more updated schools.They keep raising taxes and nothing gets better.Im voting no for the school budget this time around,since it never seems to go to the kids.

If you think that MCSD is the only district that has drugs, you live in a fantasy. ALL schools have immorality running rampant. It even happens in schools that you pay tuition for. I was in a private school and saw it everyday. It's not just the schools, its just the world we live in. WE need to take charge of our children. Be parents NOT friends. Taxes are excessive and very straining on everyones bank account. I will also vote no. Not because of the 'drugs' because of the rampant waste of funds and greed. We do need God, not just in school but in our everyday life. Teach your children now.

No I don't live in a fantasy of course there are drugs everywhere.The private school provides a better education by far and the drugs are not available THE way they are in public.Yes they have thier problems but there is a huge difference in the education.This should be available in the public school and it just isnt.

and what exactly is god supposed to do in these schools? superstitions and myths will not help the problem.

only people can fix the problems...

if you teach kids to believe in a god with no proof of that beings existence you are being willfully ignorant. i thought the object of school was to teach facts not fantasy. but that's my opinion....

Well hopefully you will see the way one day.School is a place to learn about both fact and fantasy [God is not a fantasy in my opinion].It's not a place for violence,drugs,bullying,gang activity etc..Fantasy is Snow White and the 7 dwafs and the 3 little Pigs.They teach about that don't they?Kids write about it learn from it don't they?.If you feel God is a fantasy you shouldn't have a problem with it in schools.My point is I wont send my child to the public schools because of the reasons I stated.I therefore feel I shouldn't have to pay for services I dont use.If your looking for a debate about God go to church,Im concerned about where my kids go to learn and if you have kids in public schools you should be too.BTW there is no Santa Claus Jesus is the reason for the Season.Just my opinion.

The proof you need ....just look in the mirror. How do you think you got here. If you do not believe in a greater being, then how do you live? You MUST have faith. I feel sorry for you and will pray for your soul. It's funny that you don't(as many like you)believe in God. Then why do you blame Him for the way the world is or your life is? If there is no God, then why blame a 'figment of your imagination".I truly believe in my Lord. I have proof that he exists. He has been the only constant source of Love in my life. Earthly beings let you down. He NEVER will.

Amen to that. I share your opinion. But unfortunately, please do not think that there aren't problems with private schools. It is there just not so much in the open. But if you teach your children faithfully, they will make the right decisions. I did.

You are right Tony those problems also exist in the private school unfortunetly.I just feel it's alot less then the public schools in this area.I have to agree we have to teach our children to do things in a way that's pleasing to God.Evidently the hellshade person didn't have proper direction and I too will pray for his soul.

first off i did not say anything in my post about blaming god about anything. how can you put blame on something that does not exist? and as your god being a source of love in your life does this mean you have no real people that love you? also when you read the bible did'nt god want abraham to kill his son to show his faith in god? that's real love right there. and what about god killing all the first born males in egypt? and what about the whole population of the earth killed in a flood except for noah and his family and some animals? i thought your god is supposed to be a loving god and we are all his children, so it seems god likes to kill his children. i'm sure that's very loving too.
if your god exists he is the biggest mass murderer of men,women and children in all of history. thanks but no thanks....
please

Obsiously, he is a lost cause. People who don't know what they are talking about, should just stay silent. The Bible is our instruction manual. You just can't read words, you have to understand them. I do feel sorry for this person (hence his 'name' Hellshade) and people like them. All we can do is pray for them. ANd or the record, I do NOT blame God for anything. I blame people like him that do not know the faithful way to live. God Bless You

Not that your reply even needs a response but I will. I do have people in my life that love me. But let's face it, we are not perfect and we do stumble and sometimes hurt the ones we love. My God (and by the way yours too) NEVER lets me down. You need to take a Bible study course before you start quoting parts of the bible without the correct knowledge. I will pray for you whether you want it or not. Please do not mock my belief.

I am thinking of taking my 13yr old out of private and putting her into Selden Middle 8th grade for Sept. Does anyone have opinions about this and the school? Please get off the subject of God. If you believe in the spirit you must live it everyday. If you don't you don't believe. That is your way. I don't knock you.

Hello,
I wouldnt suggest sending your child to SMS.These unfortunetly are not good schools.Some people have no problem, but I guess it would depend on the kid.They don't challenge the kids as much in public schools.If you can swing it money wise you would be doing your kid a favor in the future.

SMS is alright. Middle Country Schools is not as bad as everyone wrote. There are some very good teachers in the schools. Start your kids young with a good foundation and push them to do well so they are placed in the honors program at Middle Country and they will be around a better class of kids. Keep them in some of the sports programs and they will learn good social skills and have a good network to protect them from any bullying problems
