I agree with observer, those kids have to walk on lines with their hands behind them or else in a public school that is goin to far. Cobden needs to wake up and see how they treat the kids there.

My kid doesn't complain about walking the line with her hands behind her back. DO you know any that do? Also, we sure don't mind the interactive white boards Mrs. Waddel managed to get funded. If you want to see what's going on at the school you can certainly show up and take an interest in your child's education. I have personally confronted that school board over something that was sent home in my daughter's backpack and have had to talk to her about a bullying issue. She is very receptive to feedback. That school gets by with a lot of hard work from a lot of dedicated volunteers. It also has a lot of great teachers. If you don't like it, run for the school board. Go to the board meetings. Maybe you'd rather have public schools where the kids run and yell and push each other or worse. If I could change one thing it would be the cafeteria food, but we pack a lunch. Don't get mad, get involved.

In regards to justsayin, I have ALWAYS taking a very HIGH interest in my children's education.So much as to take my children OUT of Cobden Schools.I agree 100% with observer when they said Mrs.Waddell she be removed.Maybe not for the reason of making children walking in a formation,but she is a very cruel and evil woman.She bullies children to see things her way.That should not come from such a high level in education.I, myself am a Cobden graduate, I was fortunate enough to have a very nice and caring pricipal/superintendant.Thank you to Mr.Schulter,he didn't degrade students,he spoke to them as if we were equals.I can't say the same for Mrs.Waddell.I know a few instances myself where she bullied MY child due to her having a disability.Illegal?Yes.Did I do anything about it?Yes.Go to the school board?Yes.Did they do anything? Not a damn thing.It's all in the politics, sadly enough.

This elementary school is a shame.. I have had nothing but trouble and im done with it.. Cant get anywhere with the board they cover u p all kinds of stuff and I am gonna make sure everyone knows what they do.. My child has disabilities and my other one is a normal kid but they get bullied and they dont do anything about it.. I have taught my kids to listen and obbey the teachers and everyone else and instead they r the ones who get picked on..

i would talk to the board members as individuals first explaining the issues at hand, and let them approach the board with them, or you might go to a board meeting, it might be better if several parents go as a group, i have spoken to a couple of them , and told them of the issues i have had and they were addressed and corrected

We have children that go to cobden high school,and over the years "linda" and "karl" have been nothing but great. They were there through many trials and hardships with our family. They have been through many situations with alot of people's kids that most of the time the parents themselves would not have delt with. They deserve every doller they earn,and if they got a raise they dam well deserved it.

We honestly LOVE Linda, she is the only one that stands up for my brother who has a learning disability. Whom is bullied by students and treated like crap by the teachers. My mother has tried many times to go to the board and switzer about the problem and it still stands!!! Its gotten to the point that we have now contacted Springfield regional education office!

If kids were taught to behave & have some respect & values these days would b a start... Teachers should also b held accountable to do their job & help the children who may struggle but it is the parent(s) responsibility too... If I find out my child is bullying, being disrespectful & so on, you can bet your ass there will be consequences in my household.... Although, i have not had a problem to this point, the athletic director & jr high coach appear to be bit of smartasses & need to get more involved in the planning of the sports programs. Karl Sweitzer, although effective, is a control freak ... No school is perfect .. If u can't handle a small school like Cobden, what makes you think other schools are different?... Maybe they should b home schooled or put into private school...

I heard she was given extra steps when she hired on....what the hell for? And now she tries to get MORE $? Smells fishy to me. And, as far as being nice, its all about who you are and what good she can get from it. I think she actually stirs shit for those she doesn't necessarily have any use for. Isn't it weird how her higher ups dont seem to mind that she gets the credit for work they do? IS she doing their jobs for them? Maybe THAT'S why she is getting the extra $?

Mrs. Leighanne has stuck her neck out for many families and kids! Kids need to be taught to respect each other and their's sad to see such bashing on such an awesome school system.
