Opinions about Ervin and Roberts. Sh ould they stay at GCHSbor should they be replaced? I feel that they should go for I feel that they pick on some studets while they allow others to get by with almost anything.

If students do bad things or stay in trouble while others cause no problems, what do you expect? What do the others get by with while some students get picked on? If some parents and their children would act in a decent way you wouldn't need to worry about what the "pricipals" were doing. Some students want to cause problems in any way they can and act as if they are saints.

I know Roberts likes to throw the 18 yr old students out when they miss a few days of school, but i can't say that i blame him. I know he tried to work with my cousin when it came to that point with him and his mom and gave him several chances and alternatives to come back but my cousin didn't stick with it. Some of his other friends were supposedly thrown out without giving them any second chances, that's the "word" I got anyway.

My daughter came home from school and reported to me that 6 students were smoking pot in the bathroom. A teacher walked by saw the smoke and sent for mr roberts. When he arrived the teacher had all six in the bathroom waiting for roberts. Rather than search them for the pot he jumped the teacher for retaining them and sent the boys back to class. My daughter and four of her friends witnessed this. Clearly roberts needs to go

My son came home with the same story. It seems the six were some of Scott Countys elite.

Hensley and Dean. Both were in the hall. It was more than one teacher. Both were yelled at.

I think Brent Roberts and Scotty Vermillion needs to be took out of the school system, all they do is try to keep the kids in trouble so they have to go to truency court all the time. I have heard from dozens of people about how hateful they are to the kids.

Please respond.

I don't care for Brent Roberts at all, but saying he is a bad principal because he is fat is a little ridiculous. I'm not defending his actions at all because I don't agree with them as far as school is concerned but the man has lost a considerable amount of weight over the past few years. In my opinion, there is always going to be some fault to complain about. Everyone fussed about Colobro, now Roberts, and I'm sure the next one will be the same way.

I think it's incredible that this sad trash is even posted. Seriously? It sure is easy to pass judgement on others, but it's a completely different thing to walk a mile in another's shoes. First, to insinuate that Mr. Roberts is a bad principal (and, yes, that's how you spell it, you little morons) because of his physical appearance is the most asinine comment in the world.(You little brainiacs might want to get out your dictionaries for this one.) Second, can you imagine how difficult it is to be in charge of discipline for an entire high school? Those who feel he plays favorites are mistaken. The same rules apply to all students at Gate City High School. The only difference is that irresponsibe students never take ownership of their faults. It seems that those who tend to get in trouble always sing the same song: "But, so and so did the same thing and he only got..." If students would only worry about their own actions and actually attempt to be responsible and productive teeenagers, they might actually find themselves out of trouble and possibly even successful. However, when you have their parents posting nonsense like this, there really is no hope. It's like they say, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

There exists many problems and questionable character issues in our school system. Beginning with our elected school board officials, the central office and individual schools. Hopefully, come election time we can start the clean-up process!

Well my son isn't in high school yet but I went to gchs and I absolutely despise that place and I live in Weber city so when my son gets old enough to go to high school I will be driving him and picking him up from rye cove high school because there is nooo way I'm sending him to gchs. And I agree that they do pick/have favorites in theiir school. I've seen it happen with my own eyes.

What type of character people will you clean up with? Some of the people running for school board have many character isuues that should prevent them from being elected. Before you vote I urge you to check out their character and the reasons they are running.

You could very well be right. I may come down to casting a vote for the lesser of two evils! I am not suggesting all are bad in our school system, but it must begin with electing responsible school board members. It is obvious that our present members have not done a very good job. I say vote for the ones that are independent minded and will not be sucked in to a "pat on the back" and "yes man" routine as we have now.

Why is it obvious that "our present members have not done a very good job"?

Very low employee (teachers & support personnel) morale.
Test scores are dropping and will drop further.
The mud hole (sports complex) that's in trouble according to Times-News. Millions down the drain.
Kickbacks to board.(This one would take a book to explain.)
School board attorney is superintendent.
Two asst. superintendents?
Board does not know what's going on with educational "leaders".
Board does now know how incompetent educational "leaders" are.
Budget problems that extend beyond current state and natl. problems.(Only partially due to the mud hole.)
Individual board member agendas for personal gain.

Aren't the new ones running for personal gain? I know four of those who are now running for school board.
