Alot of smoke and mirrors. what ifs and maybes. Anyway you look at it the Forrest City Schools administration has failed us again. Here we are facing fiscal distress again due to financial mismanagement. The current administration needs to go. They were obviously the wrong choice to begin with. But on the bright side when the state takes over the will be fired along with the zoo more commonly referred to as the school board. Its isnt like they follow the rules and regulations the approved anyway.

No one is broke. They lost more students which means a loss of revenue which means you must cut some expenses.

And they would quit loosing students if they would worry more about discipline of gang, drug, and bullying behavior, then worry about discipline of the wrong color pants, wrong belt, wearing your coat in class, etc....

That is not wrong. I am a parent. They lost my kids, and virtually 40 other kids that I can think of off the top of my head for that very reason. So you are WRONG WRONG WRONG

I though they passed a law which made the school choice option beause of race illegal which should have required all the whites who snd their kids to P/W to go to Forrest City. But what can you expect in the delta. SUBSTANDARDISM

I TOATALLY AGREE and MRS ethridge should have been fired a long time ago, she is predjudice, and some teachers at the jr high cuss at the students and we need teachers and officials that give a damn about the kids not themselves

A lot of the faculty and staff are prejudice! The state needs to come in and take over immediately. I recently witnessed the FCHS dismiss drunken students on a field trip, but they gave my friends child 3 days ISS for wearing a jacket with a hood! This school system is pitiful! I thought it was totally embarrassing to witness a kid signing to play football for a college and no athletic director, principal, or coach present for the signing! They needed to cut their salaries first.

So the poor thing gets their feelings hurt and you want to fire the teacher. That's probably the only way to get through to these kids.

It is not about feelings being hurt, it is about fairness and applying the rules to all regardless of race,age,sex, or affiliation! The Forrest City School system is being laughed at by the entire DELTA. We are the only district that is busing students to other school districts 30 miles or more miles away! What other communities this small have a alternative school for students to graduate from! Just look at the Broadway Twin Cinema parking lot in the morning and afternoon the bus is loaded with students that should be in our district.

I hope you're not talking about the Willis kid who played football in wynne and whose parents both live in wynne but both have jobs with FCSD.

No one was probably there because he didn't play football here. He just came back this semester so he could say he graduated from FC.

One would think that being able to say you graduated from Wynne would afford you a greater advantage in receiving a football scholarship , based upon their high ranking football program. I'm am inclined to believe that maybe there is more to this story than is being told .

Then you clearly didn't read the article. The boy said himself he went to school here till highschool then went to wynne to play football but said he wanted to graduate from FC.
I was there

Please they were all there. Just look at the Channel 8 film. The athlete get to invite who he/she wants to attend. Plus Adm have required state activities that they must attend.

Again you are wrong! The district keeps records of where every student goes! They have lost about 100 students and 90 of them move over 75 miles away for jobs. Now I am sure there are some who have broken the law and gone to a surrounding district but they are illegals. If those districts are caught taking those kids - they can be sued for $$$$$$. It has already happened once and will again. If a parent wants to pay for substandard education at Calvary or Lee Then more power to them but when they can't get into a decent college they can pat themselves on the back. Those school do not have certified teachers, use old off grade level text books and have no technology.

All school have issues some are better at hiding them. Have we forgotten the hanging incident, drinking students on a field trip, and a gun on Campus. These did not happen in Forrest City but they all touch a boundary or at a place where a parent has to pay for that exposure.

So enjoy your privileged life of fear based lies and racism!

No you are wrong my friend....

Now since you know everything....then you know why this school system has went down hill, you know in right and it eats you up inside. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
