HMMMM...Now how can a Whitehall student live in Allentown...do you really belong in the Whitehall School District or just the many who use Whitehall friends and relative addresses and really belong in Allentown School District---maybe that is part of the problem!!

This is Ridic. For those blaming "imported" Allentown kids, should read the facts. The kid who had been arrested, and who is reponsible for todays actions, is a life long, 3rd generation Whitehall resident. Thats right folks, a pure-bred Pennsylvanian Dutch. And like most of these multi generation born Pennsylvanians, He's goes to Vo-tech, b/c they dont have a mental capacity to do real work and go to college. instead theyd rather become plumbers and construction workers like daddy and grandpa. Nothing wrong with that, but i find it disturbing how ethnocentric you all sound. If you would all check out the stats, Children of foriegn born parents, do remarkably better then their peers. Just look at your local hospitals! Maby its just me, but doesnt it seem all the doctors are always indian or arabic?? strange huh?
This makes me laugh. While I hope my kids go to college, there is nothing wrong with vo-tech. Actually the way jobs are outsourced now, college degrees don't mean job security anymore. But they can't outsource plumbers and construction workers, etc.

Also, I've seen more doctors in the last year than I hope to ever see again due to a high-risk pregnancy and I can honestly say none of the drs were Indian or Arabic. I didn't even see any in the hospital, they must tend to specialize in other fields, because none of the medical staff I saw on the maternity floor or in the OR where I had my c-section were of Arabic descent.

As far as students from foreign-born parents, while I think many do make a greater effort than others, you can't make a blanket statement. Last year my son's newest best friend was of arabic descent, my son was upset this year when he wasn't with this kid for anything, why because he's in remedial classes and my son is in honors.

I'd honestly be proud of my son if he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps (college grad) or his grandfather's (started working right out of school). If he's can support himself and is happy, I don't care what degree does or doesn't hang on his wall. It really doesn't mean you are any better than the next person, if you haven't figured that out by adulthood, that's SAD.

well since they have not released who did the AHS vandalism, we don't know it's an Allen student, now do we? For all we know it could have been you trying to make Allen look bad and so you could bash them on these boards.
hmmmmm..very interesting theory. lol
I think you are on to something.

<quoted text>Lets' see dehydration for one most of these kids hadn't eaten lunch yet and they were in the hot sun with no where to cool off. My daughter is now sunburned on her neck and arms. Why weren't they sent home immediately or sent to the other 3 schools.
LMAO... dehydration??... after 2 hours?... give me a break! Your daughters sunburned? Awwww, I guess she doesn't get out much... try a little aloe or Noxema, that should help. I do have a question though... does you still tie her shoes and cut her meat for her?

LMAO!... I can't believe some parents today. Most kids would rather be outside for a couple hours than inside the school. We used to play outside for hours at a time in the summer... what I woulnd't give to play a game of freeze-tag outside!:)
