What is going on with all of these teachers losing their jobs and no graduation for preschool or kindergarten. These kids work their A$$E$ off and the school system could care less. They don't care a bit about the little ones. We need to get some people in there who actually give a dam about these kids and not these greedy b$tches that is in there now. And the school cafeteria is nasty. The food is hard and grody yet they make these little ones eat it. Nasty a$$ people. Disgusting.

It's really sad that budget cuts are going to affect our children and their education. It's Mike Kenner's job to look after their education and he's retiring (thank goodness) but he doesn't have a problem taking raises throughout his career and watching as those that really care for our kids on a daily basis lose their jobs If you are really concerned then call the KY representative and tell them what you think of budget cuts and if you are complaining about the food served in the cafeteria then go to the school - tell them you'd like to volunteer, do research on how to get healthier, non processed foods into schools if more parents would get involved instead of just complaining maybe we could have a better school system

If there is no graduation I'm pretty sure the kids will never know the difference. Its the stupid parents who want to say everybody look at me that it will bother.

anytime you have budget cuts in a school, and teachers are laid off, and programs disapper, the children are being cut short of their education.

Excuse me.... but I would love for my child to get to graduate in the elementary school. They should be honored for their accomplishment and feel proud of themselves. It's how children become to feel good about themselves and actually want to go school. It has nothing to do with having anyone look at me. Maybe your just one of those parents who want recognition for something?? But when children work hard throughout the year, they should be rewarded for it.

excuse me but they are rewarded by proceeding to the next grade. That's what's wrong with kids now. They have to be rewarded for everything. I hear parents say you'll get this or that if you are good. How about if you are good I won't bust your ass?

I take it you've never been to school in your life? Because most schools have a kindergarten graduation and a graduation from 5th grade into middle school. That just goes to show you how uneducated you are you douche! Don't even bother commenting back on this because you're not worth my time. Go back to school and you'll see Todd County is not the only ones that have stuff like that!

Lola that is the problem we have to much stuff like that. kids today are coddled from birth. The American school system waste billions of dollars on nothing every year. It is time for you and other people to wake up in this country. The united States is broke and every government program needs to be cut. I don't think little Lucy not getting to graduate from kindergarten is going to scar her for life. We have to much crap and government funded programs now and we all better get ready for cuts across the board. Now you will probably say well if the rich would pay their fair share in taxes we wouldn't have a debt problem in the United States. Well I hate to tell you they already pay their fair share and more. 48% of Americans pay absolutely 0% in federal income taxes. The problem isn't that the rich don't pay their fair share the problem is to many kindergarten graduations government cell phones and all the money sucking federal programs. I am far from rich but I do pay taxes and I get tired of parents like you who get mad because financially a kindergarten graduation just wasn't in the budget. if you want one feel free to write a check and pay for it!!

How did this thread turn to trash? Quit arguing with one another and actually call ur representives and complain about budget cuts with them because this affects more than just a kindergarten graduation! This affects your kid's education!

I told mine the reward was in their grades.If the made bad grades or didnt complete their assignments,they got grounded.You dont have time to watch tv,play games,go outside or do sports if you cant get your school work done.And somebody calling me from school about them be afraid.Teachers have a whole classroom full of kids,they dont have time to be horsing around with your butt!
