To the last 2 comments.. I totally agree with you. BUT just putting how we feel on this site behind a fake name will NOT get us no place, but where we are at now and getting worse. Everyone needs to get together publically and help fight for our childrens rights, safety, ect. or Shut up and continue to live here and deal with it.. Might I add, being cowards, shutting up and not standing up for what we believe in took God out of school. That was our FIRST mistake.

You admonish someone for their comment then write "perhaps you living off these type of people maybe you work has a resource teacher". Do you really think someone that works with special needs children wants them to have problems and wants more children in the District with special needs? You might have made a good case for your comments until you got to that point. Hitler wanted to execute those with special needs. I will say it now. If you try to defend that comment you cannot.
As for the the District opting of of the choice law as allowed in a provision in the law, I may disagree with it but I do belive I understand why it was necessary.
I can defend this comment and will there are people out there that make there living off the despair of others example ambulance chasing Lawyers & chiropractors. How about pill pushing doctors who hand out rid elan to young children who they clam has ADHD how about the child who brings home a good grade on there report card and the mother beat him because she told him not to do that because he might loose his crazy This a good one how about the government that hands out food stamps without any control over what people buy with them they buy ice cream cookies soda then they develop diabetes but the health care for this provided by the government that gave them the lifestyle that gave them diabetes in the first place talk about a endless cycle it is human nature and goverments agenda to take advantage of the poor and before you get on your high horse I will tell you it is everyone's responsibility to take care of less fortunate but government hand outs crazy checks pills for ADHD free lunch at School paying peoples light bills because they didn't have since enough to turn up the thermostat letting them go on a eating binge is not the right thing to do

<quoted text>I was wondering the same thing... Why shouldn't we want our children to be safe without having to leave the places we love and have loved all our lives? Why shouldn't we DEMAND that our childrens education and their safety come first ??!! Doesn't mean we don't love our communities because we want this for OUR CHILDREN...Our children are EVERYONE'S FUTURE...How can someone NOT want them to get the education and safety we all recieved?
Exactly :)

A school participating in school choice can only allow 3% of their students to participate. Only 3% of a districts' students can go to another school.

I firmly believe that schools function better when they are community schools. If the majority of the population of a school is from outside the community, it creates a disconnect between school and community. It is difficult to encourage and teach students to be involved in the "community" when their community is a world away.

I understand that you don't want your students to go to "a bad school." Unfortunately the more people that chose to leave the worse the school gets. The more affluent typically leave first, leaving only those who are blindly loyal or dirt poor. The school board acted in a way that protects the school. They are trying to keep Forrest City from becoming the new Hughes. When the school fails, the whole town fails.
As more and more people move from Forrest City the more your property value falls. See the cycle?

Your rights were not violated, unfortunately you are caught in a declining school district in a declining town. I would consider private education, moving, or pretending to have a different address.(Don't attack me, everyone is doing it! LOL) Also, as others have mentioned....contact your representatives!
