Just curious if you followed the rules pertaining to school choice. Since that law had race qualifications.

Probably the same reason your kids dont go to Forrest City. You are ashamed of who you are or what you have done in the past. Just because you cant live up to family expectations does not mean you have to be so negative to the Proud People of Forrest City school District. You kid deserve to bring down other districts grades anyway.

If these kids could go to school and not get their ass beat by a mob, people wouldn't pull their children out.

So who wants to be responsible for the hospital bills. The school doesn't care about the children being beat up. They said they couldn't keep my son safe. I had no choice but to pull him out. I refuse to make him fight everyday just to be a part o that place.

I am not going to judge you like others will. Do what's best for your child, and I that means homeschool, private school, move, just get them the heck out of that hell hole!

when our school district principals are in the district because they get paid more and send their kids to Wynne what does that say about our schools .They shouldn't be allowed to work in a district if it's not good enough for their own children to be in.

As a parent of two in sfcs I have to admit these are a joke. Patty long is a rude smart aleck. Mr donaldson is a liar and joke. It is beyond me how such idiots can have the jobs they do. They need to be janitors instead of faculty.they are both concerned with the higher class people. That is not right at all. One of these lower class parents are gonna take each of them down apeg or two. We parents need to petition to remove them.

Nope don't approve of her either. They need someone who does not see color or dollar signs . We need a very stout backbone in order to have a decent school system. We sure dobt have one.

Forrest City student!s cannot participate in school choice. The district is under a federal disergration order. Choice is not allowed and when choice is thrown out by the courts system because it is resegerating the school / county not one by race but by poverty. Then all though precious white kids will return or their racist parents can pay for private education.

LITTLE ROCK — Gov. Mike Beebe signed a new Arkansas school choice law Tuesday that would remove race as a factor in student transfers between school districts.

In a ceremony at the Capitol, Beebe also signed into law Senate Bill 630, which allows authorities to seize money and other assets intended for acts of terrorism and would create a civil cause of action against terrorists to allow victims to recover damages and attorneys’s fees.

SB 65 by Sen. Johnny Key, R-Mountain Home, was signed into law as Act 1227 of 2013. In addition to removing the racial component from a school choice law that a federal judge declared unconstitutional last year, the new law also caps the number of transfers allowed from one district in a year to no more than 3 percent of the district’s student population.

It bars transfers that would conflict with an existing desegregation order. The law went into effect immediately. Transfers approved before Tuesday are exempt.

The bill is a response to a federal judge’s ruling last year that the state’s 1989 school choice-law is unconstitutional because of a provision based on race. That ruling was appealed to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and arguments were heard in January.

Act 1227 stipulates that the new school choice law expires on July 1, 2015, to allow lawmakers to review the legislation in light of the 8th circuit’s eventual ruling.

Senate Bill 630, now Act 1295 of 2013, is known as “Andy’s Law” in honor of U.S. Army Pvt. William “Andy” Long of Conway, who was shot and killed outside a west Little Rock recruiting center in 2009. Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula of Jacksonville was wounded in the shooting rampage.

The bill was sponsored by Sen. Jason Rapert, R-Conway.

Abdulhakim Muhammad, a Memphis, Tenn., native born Carlos Bledsoe who converted to Islam, pleaded guilty to capital murder and attempted capital murder in 2011 and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Muhammad, who identified himself as a terrorist carrying out an act of jihad, had traveled to Yemen and Somalia before the shooting.

Muhammad’s father, Melvin Bledsoe of Memphis, attended the bill signing ceremony, along with Robert Rice, brother-in-law of Andy Long.

Only if they went through the proper procedures initially. If you are one of those illegals then you have problems.

Correct, if the district the child transferred to did so by "legal" transfer the child may remain in the District the child "legally" transferred to. The problem lies with the receiving District if they accepted a child without following the law at the time. If the parent lied about residency to transfer the parent could then face legal consequences.
