With gas prices being so hard on everybody I been wondering if the school has given any thought to going to a 4 day school week I heard on television the amount of money school systems could save not running that 5th day would be enormous and who wouldn't love a 4 day week and 3 day weekend?Sounds like something that may work to help small schools hang on to more money?

A couple of years ago State Rep. Gayle Kingery (R-154th Poplar Bluff) said there was some legislation in committee about this very subject. I don't remember the exact number, but it was eye popping. I think on some levels it is a great idea, but during the school year it would put additional childcare costs on the parents of younger children.

I put that very question to you, Mr. I Need Constant Attention. Test, my butt, it is just another of your wierd ways to show who you "think," and I do emphasize "think" you know in Doniphan. That test is about you, you, you - it screams, LOOK AT ME, GIVE DARIN ATTENTION.

That is the worst possible solution. You'll be putting the burden of another full day of daycare on people who can barely afford it now. See, try thinking in terms of COMMUNITY as a WHOLE. That's when we look for solutions that work for the Community. Community is not just the institutions, it's about people too - other than just Darin.

Your idea just shifts cost from one program to another - state, school, to Federal, Head Start - and even then, Head Start does not have the facilities to take on the numbr of additional children that would need/qualify fo Head Start.

C'mon, answer man, you da man, Darin, tell the parents how, now that you solved the District's gas problem, you would help the parents with their daycare problem?

You do realize that you have backed up Darin's statement and tried to argue against at the same time? Fulltime daycare is fulltime daycare, regardless of how many days a week the child attends. The price is the same. For us, it is $50 per week.
Head start needs a serious revamping. In Doniphan it goes by a point system. The more non-productive their parents are as members of society, the better the chances the child will be accepted to head start. IMO, if neither parent works, they have more time to act as parent/educator to their child. They should not me awarded more points on the system so that someone else can do the parenting for them. If such were the case, and our residents accepted their roles as parents and attempted to groom thier children to be something other than even greater burdens to the system, then head start would have more than adequate facilities.
So perhaps bearing that in mind, you can ease up on your obvious vendetta against Darin, and try to offer something productive yourself? As it is, it is your posts that seem to scream "I am starved for attention!"

I agree with you about daycare - which is WHY a four day school week doesn't make sense, Rocket Scientist. Do I need to do the math for you?

I disagree that I am both supporting and arguing against Darin. Never mind, won't go there with a rocket scientist, you're just too smart for me.

Okay, you went from Darin, to daycare, to revamping headstart. Perhaps if you narrow your scope you can begin to have a discussion.

I have no vendetta against the ever so obvious Darin. As a Doniphan parent, think you are out of touch. I can't disagree that there are dysfunctional families here. That is no reason to write them off, or especially to write off their children. Inspiration - faith, academic, and personal is what these kids could use. Clearly they wouldn't get it from you. Let's hope you're not a teacher - worse, let's hope you're not a member of the administratrive team. Wow.

I am happy that you think so much of our community that you'd pretend to be from here. However, I'm sure your neighbors would prefer that you look for solutions in your own community, wherever that might be. Poser.

I am just glad that the system recognizes the value of a child's future, and gives the child the opportunity of the points. Those children have no less love for their parents than do the children of rocket scientists. There is a place in the world for tire changers, mechanics, factory workers, and rocket scientists. Let's not discount folks because they're humble. That is one of the problems that has been cited about the problems at the HS. That's why we want change that is inclusive of everyone's value. Thank you for being such a brilliant example of the thinking that causes kids to drop out, feel inhibited, ashamed of where they come from and - ultimately who they are. You're what we need to change. Thank you for showing youself to the community

No it doesn't. I am proud of the accomplishments of our students and I make it my business to know the history of our school and community at large. You, being from God knows where, have no appreciation for the fact that our community has raised some great people and continues to do so. DHS grads have become everything from State Representatives (Joe Driskill) to Grammy-Nominated Artists (Billy Yates). We have a host of Doctors, Nurses, Lawyers, Engineers and Teachers that came up here. It is in no way about me, it is about us and I'm dang proud of us. If you weren't an Internet interloper, you would be too.

I graduated from DHS in 82. I owe my success to Mr. French, Mr Smock, Dr. Bell, Marylin Bell, and countless other professional people in Doniphan.

Today I help run a mult-billion dollar company, one of the largest in the world. It all started in Doniphan and I am thankful for the wonderful childhood I was given and the many caring people in the community that stood up to help me when my parents could not.

There is nothing wrong with the school. It is the parents and the people in the community and the lack of interest to educate your children to compete in a global economy. Those who do not play will be left behind.

For the girl that asked the question and started this thread... Why do you feel something is wrong? because of all the stupid people writing on this forum who have no idea what the real world is about.. most people in doniphan live in the past. Use the internet to educate yourself until you can leave doniphan and then go to the best college you can afford, work your ass off, be honest, do what you say... Question what you do not know or do not understand and never believe anything is impossible. you can do anything you put your mind too and the only one that will stop you is yourself.

My favorit saying... if it's easy, it's not worth doing...

I agree with you - but to continue to build a community and to ensure that children who enter the HS today have good teachers, people from the system to inspire them beyond their own circumstances, requires that people in the community constantly work to keep it on the right track. I think you offered the student who started this string some good thoughts. The community adn the school system has experienced a lot of changes since 1982. There are far too many students who don't make it out of Doniphan. Glad you did - don't forget, it's a great place to come back to.
