Why has the community allowed the schools to get so bad? When I grew up here, the schools were the pride of the town. Now? What a joke. The Principals have got to be the laziest bunch I have ever seen.I hear that three are ready to retire. We can only hope, and they take Hood with them.

How come the only people who get hired now at Licking R-8 are either related to a board memeber or part of Hood's family. Our kids are paying the price. What a horrible system we now have. Why have we allowed it to happen?

Amen, brother. Look how Crow and Aiken got their jobs. Licking under Hood's "leadership" has turned into a rest home for good old boys, board members and Hood's immediate family. And the school is now a joke, just like the fools in charge up there

you must be related to either a board member or an adminastrator who have enriched themselves at the expense of the children of the Licking R-8 schools. Hood is a joke and dumb as a rock. Talk to the man for five minutes and tell me he is smart enough to come in out of the rain.

John Hood is a class act and extremely intelligent. You don't get your doctorate from being a moron. Back down is obviously a welfare recipient who sits on his butt and collects entitlements. He hasn't contributed anything to society but is only a cancer on America. Nothing but a complainer waiting for the first of the month for the check. Licking is a good school. Sandy Aiken is a good person with the kids best interest. If you wanna bash Denbow, he is retiring and throwing in the towel so go ahead but the teachers make the school and it is a good school.

everyone at Licking R-8 knows how Hood got his "Doctor" degree. He couldn't get his paper passed and he was given one last exstension so he hired a proffesor at MSU to "help" him write it. That is the story his wife told the teachers. Where I come from that is called cheating. The man can hardly carry on a conversation unless it involves "hunen and fishen". The schools have fallen so far since he took over it is just sad. No pride anymore. Anything is good enough just as long as everybodies relative has a job. Look how Aiken got her job. Look how Crow got his. Denbow retired years ago, he just never told anyone.

Don't trust Hood. In the last five years admn salaries in Licking R-8 have gone up an average of 18,000. Teachers average salaries, in one the few districts in the state, have gone DOWN. Look it up on DESE's site.

Naw, that's you David Almany. You show up everytime there is anything to say about the Licking schools and always with the same bitter diatribe. The anonamymity of the web allows you to claim otherwise but it is obvious. You really need to get over it before you pop a vein.

Sorry friend, you have this wrong. Haven't seen the man in years. Besides, he and Denbow are buddies. So try again. Who ever I am, most in town will tell you the schools have gone to hell under Hood. The facts back it up. Hood takes care of himself and his family. Everytime he comes to shake my hand, I think what a good church going phoney.

Well Dave you've lied about plenty of things in the past I have no doubt you'd lie about this too. You'd also lie about the condition of the schools. How about posting some of the "fact" you claim support your contentions? Maybe a link or tow?

I attended LHS, and feel that I received a pretty good education. I didn't agree with all of my teachers, but that's not uncommon. My problem was with the snobbish student body. I hated school for that reason. I was surprised that one of the snobbier people of my class, whose entourage bullied me mercilessly, was hired to be a school counselor. If that's true, I am sure some of these other claims that I'm reading are probably true as well. Glad I left when I did. :(

Jo Ann Kenny is just a stuck up snob. She thinks she is better than anyone else. How can she help kids who really need it. So out of touch.

Go to DESE and look at school performance and see that Licking R-8 ranks last in Texas County across the board, and Texas County ain't no educational high ground. An even more obvious area to fall drastically is sports. Pretty much a joke when Licking Wildcats use to be feared state wide. But then look how Crow got his job. To much of that has gone on under good old boy John. As to my idenity, you even got the wrong gender. LMAO

The two new counselors: one the Hood's wife, the other, her sister. I am sure they were the best two qualified for the job, just like Crow; Hood winked again. Too much inbreeding in Licking Schools.

Well Dave according to this;

Licking ranks 163 out of 519, meaning there were it ranked higher than 356 other schools in the state. Not too bad for a little hick town.

In what? Nepotisim? Where did you find that. Sure not on the DESE site.
