Do you think your child is receiving the education they deserve, and how do our test scores stack up to the rest of the nation???

If the child wants to receive an education, FC schools can provide an excellent education. However a lot kids don't want to learn and their parents don't support them. It makes everyone look bad.

My child wanted to learn and was being hindered by the atmosphere in FCSD, therefore my child is at another school and it flourishing with a 3.9, has a job, pays a car payment and insurance, my child is in every club at school, tutors other students and removing them was the best thing I ever did.

I am glad moving your kids worked out for you and your children. I just hate when people act like FC is incapable of providing a decent education to willing children. FC can and does produce quality students that exceed in life each year.

However, i do realize they do have a large number of trouble makers that can cause distractions.

Not sure what your point was with the car payment and insurance?

I agree with FC Guest. My children have received a good education in the FC schools albeit there are problems. They were and are able to not let that hinder their academic performance. I suppose it depends on the child and the family preference though.

sQu, where does your child now attend?

Out of curiosity, and since you are familiar with "green donkey d!cks" as I noted in your Pops Place comment, where did you attend school?

I myself received a good education in Forrest city, it is capable but it is not working for the mass of the students who attend now.
My point was that the child is an achiever and I am proud . I wanted to make note my child has not been in any trouble in any district and, when kids have a respectable place to flourish and want to learn and learn how to be a responsible citizen...then the majority excel.

I think our kids can succeed in the proper environment!!!! I however don't think that's being offered in FC!!!! Teachers aren't taking control of their classroom because (based off of observation) they don't care, or don't fill they have the support of the administration!!!!! Now the question is, what can one do to change this, and where can I as a concerned parent start ?

Start with the teacher, then work your way up the chain of command until you are satisfied. Teacher, principal, superintendent and then the school board.
