I like that lastest post about Florissant regarding the teenager arrested for robbery. One more student from Mcluer North taken off the streets of Florissant. It seems like Mcluer North has become a haven for criminals these days. Out the three individuals arrested for the shooting of that little girl in town, one was a student and the other a former student. When is Mcluer North going to take a stand and keep people like this out of its school?

They will still keep busing them in, as long as they are getting money from the state.

Seriously, the schools fault??? What about their piece of crap parents or should I say parent??? I understand booting a kid out of school that truely deserves to be booted, but if a kid is going to school everyday, even if he's failing, is it right to take away what little chance of a future that kid has by booting him out?
Bottomline, these kids parents need to parent. It's a never ending cycle that CAN'T be fixed. Also, as far as busing kids in, I'm pretty sure all three of those people involved in the shooting you speak of lived in florissant.

HSD, Riverview and Ferg-Flor needs to buy Jamestown Mall and make it an alternative school for gangbangers who do nothing but ruin school for students who go to school to get an education. If you want the achievement gap to close, change the climate of your schools and get kids who deal drugs, gangbang and skip class all the time out of your schools.

schools and parents are to blame. parents for being too self absorbed and not giving a damn, teachers for politicking and playing favorites while alienating other students. creates apathy hate and rage in the minds of already troubled youths.

Teachers have to alienate the smart kids cause of no child left behind. In the eyes of NCLB, every kid will be a surgeon or attorney general in the next 10 years. Get ready. Lots of brain busting going on and there will be no one to take out the trash.

Maybe public schools need to adopt stricter rules for both parents and kids. Maybe its time the teachers start grading the parents like the government grades the teachers. This is not something you can only blame on the child, and if anyone else should be blamed its the parent. They need to be graded and when they fail the kids should be taken from them until they can make it work. Put the kids in a caring foster home while the parents get their life straightened out. If they dont, then they lose their kids. America is too soft on parents.

Wow. Bad-mouthing a good high school that you CLEARLY know nothing about. That's neat. You're such a hero.

Does it make you feel good about yourself to hide behind a computer and talk smack about something you know nothing about? Berating a community you don't even live in? Talking about a school you've probably never stepped foot in?

FACT: NONE of the men arrested for the "girl's shooting" were students at McCluer North High School.

You're an ass. Get your facts straight.

I don't know if many parents would care if their child was taken from them. Most would probably feel less burdened. It is a shame to say that, but it is a realistic statement.

Condoms are cheaper than children. Some people need to understand this.

I know ALOT about McCluer North. Yes, I have stepped foot in there. I even went to school there. I have also worked in the district for years. And I can say from personal experience, that it is going downhill. And has been for years.

Administration, and I mean those at the admin building, need to step up and do something. But they won't. They don't want to admit that there is a problem.

Anyone that would stick up for Ferg/Flor school dist must work there. Children are not getting a quality education there.

End of story.

And don't forget the famous words of Rodney Dangerfield after observing some unruly kids:

Reply to YoungFloTownRes:

Yes they were McCluer North Students. One was a current student and the other was a graduate. I know these things because I am in a position to know them.

I agree with some of the posts about parents being part of the blame. Good parenting brings good children and then good adults. The problem I am pointing out is that the school is taking in kids who should never be their in the first place. Out of the three I referred to, one lived in Ferg-Flor district the other two did not. McCluer North is an excellent school but with that many parents sneak their troubled kid into it hoping it will straighten them out. The outcome can be dangerous and as previously discussed it has been. What I believes needs to happen is the school should tighten up the reigns on the residency, the structure and the enviornment of the school.

McCluer North is a great school. I go there. 1900 students go there. If someone does something stupid in the community, it is a police matter. This person does not represent us all. I used to go to Kirkwood and it was horrible there.

Actually, kids are safer in school than on the weekends or holidays at home. At least they're supervised which is more than when they're on the streets. How can you blame schools for kids' misbehavior on the streets. It's our job to teach them academic skills. There's no way we can teach morals when they're not part of the curriculum. Please, when kids are raised by wolves, they become wolves. 95% of the kids I teach are wonderful, responsible kids. But they're JUST kids so they are easily persuaded, immature, and impulsive. The schools need to get RID of violent offenders in school. To do that, everyone (parents, teachers, police, Admin) needs to take a "take no prisoners, Zero tolerance" attitude and be consistent.

McCluer North has great kids and great parents who work hard and would do "WHATEVER" it takes to help their kids. However, McCluer North has a very small percentage of students and parents who have no respect and refuse to be educated. The sad thing is that this small percent get all the negative press. I dare anybody reading this to contact the school and come see some of these great kids who do the right thing every day and always willing to help someone. The educators at North bend over backwards for all the students. If students and parents choose not to put education in the line of priorities then shame on them.
