Keith Hale and GHS

You really want to know how bad Keith Hale is, The current seniors LOST there senior picnic for having a senior skip day, where a majority of the seniors were at school. He said if attendance was below 90%, he would take away a day from them because they took a day from him. It was 82% that day, and a majority was freshman-juniors. Dont even tell me that you didn't have a senior skip day, because every class has one.
You cant even leave the room in that school now unless youre called to the office. You have 5 mins between classes to use the restroom and do what you need to do because once that bell rings, youre not allowed to leave class for anything. If you do its a automatic write up, 2 days detention and a possible friday school, even if you have to pee and its a emergency, i guess you're kids didn't tell you about that one.
yuck

I feel so sorry for the kids who are going to be freshman-seniors in the next couple of years at GHS. Keith Hale is turning GHS into a prison. He is putting in so many new rules, and destroying the tradition that has been in place for so many years at that school.
When i went there, we didnt have all of these rules that he is bringing into the school. Idiotic rules like he is bringing makes even the best students hate school, its suppost to be the best years of your life, yet even the best students are starting to hate it and wanting to get out.
Its not preparing you for the real world, They're putting to much into what the state thinks about the school, tests here tests there, They let seniors do there own thing when i was a senior, and i graduated from UK with a degree in Business Administration. Now these seniors are getting in trouble left and right (the good kids) for even the slightest word spoken in class because the teachers are becoming hardasses over nothing.
The more rules that are put in place that are ignorant rules, the worse these students become. That is not the real world.
*Snort*...I too am a GHS graduate...and when I went to school there, we had less time between classes...we weren't allowed to have cell phones out...Students would never dare to speak to teachers the way some kids do now...I have a family member there now, and the things kids do that is "normal" would have been a BAD KID when I was there. When I was there people were glad to have a GHS student and we were one of the top schools in the state. That is no longer the case with GHS - because the students have been allowed to become undisciplined and disrespectful.

I remember when I was there they used to let sophomores and up hang out in a special part of the school (I don't remember exactly now, because it has been so long)...Anyway, when I was going to be a sophomore, they stopped letting kids do it because students were abusing the privelage....I remember we all whined about how unfair it was, but at the end of the day it made not a bit of difference to the education I received.

I say that because perhaps the kids there now are just whiny because they have been allowed to run around undisciplined and like wild children for so long. It sounds to me they respond much the same way most people do when forced to change, even when for the better. Perhaps that unruliness is why you never learned how to spell "supposed," and why you think rules somehow affect your ability to learn.(Not to mention your total lack of actually giving a scenario where an "ignorant" rule is in place."
yuck

Sorry that should read "I remember when I was there they used to let sophomores hang out in a special part of the school"

Mr. Hale is a smart man. He's implementing more rules because they are needed. Generally speaking, GHS's standards have been deplorable. I know many new GHS graduates who frankly shouldn't have graduated.

That isn't to say that there is nothing wrong with Barren. Both schools, and frankly most schools in this country, aren't challenging our students enough.

God forbid a child goes to school to obtain a good education instead of have fun. That is whats important, right? Having a good time? Education should totally be on the backburner to walking around the hallways during class and chatting with your buddies.
Perhaps if Glasgow High School had an administration like it has now when you were in school you would know the proper use of the words you're and your. It must have been senior skip day when they taught your class the difference, but I'll quickly give you a little lesson in grammar.
You're - you are - You're(you are) one of the most ignorant people in the history of the human race.
Your - possessive form of you - Your parents must be so proud that you graduated from UK with a degree in Business Administration without learning basic grammar skills.

i am a student at glasgow high school, yes mr.hale is a jerk in some ways but in other ways he is a great principle. hes very fair man. inless you give him reasons not to like you than he will respect you. Some say its likes a prison and yes in many ways it is but no one said learning was fun the school is trying to prepare you for the next real thing and that is called life. some of you may not know what that really is but i will say the school wouldnt be getting the programs its getting if it wasnt for mr. hale

Are you retarded? Barren's basketball team beat Glasgow. As far as I know, Glasgow (in all sports) had only 1 kid good enough to play D1 NCAA; may be better than Barren, but schools are not solely about sports: It's about academics. I shouldn't even have to elaborate that Barren's academics are far superior to Glasgow's. And quite frankly, your response seems like something a freshman or a middle schooler would write.

Last time i checked, Glasgow is 5-2 games over barren this year (2b baseball wins 2 basketball wins and 1 football win). And last time i checked glasgow produced 4 d1 athletes. Lajuan to eastern which is a D1 school, Jalen to Murray state D1 Parker to western D1 and Hunter to Louisville D1

Totally agree. You should all be lucky that hes there to guide you. He is a great man, and role model. At the end of the day, im pretty sure that SPORTS isn't the reason that you are in school to begin with. I agree will previous posters, stop crying about everything and stick to your education. High School IS THE BEST TIME OF YOUR LIFE!

Seriously people.

BCHS and GHS are both good schools. Why must people hang onto the hating on the one they didnt graduate from?

PS. I am a GHS graduate.

Then why did Glasgow lose to BCHS in the 15th District Champ? because Poore was running fastbreak and Glasgow got way to cocky thinking "ahh Barren sucks, he wont hit a game winner". but guess what, he did. we may not have better sports but who has better testing scores? BCHS does. Barren has many more people going to colleges like Translyvania and other colleges like that getting full ride scholarships than Glasgow does. I would much rather go through college and get a Dr. degree than get a full ride scholarship to a college to play sports and not even make it to the pros. no one from glasgow high school has made it to the pros, glasgow athletes need to sit down and shut up because they are no where near as good as they think they are.

Johnny Vance played for the Pirates orgaization...did Matt Bowles play for the Brewers orgaization? I agree that a person is more likely to get struck by lightening...twice...than going pro, but I don't think you can say no one has ever gone pro in a sport. Btw...Bradley Haines played some minor league ball too. From Glasgow, went to Barren...

Hale is awesome. Glasgow is a disgusting school, hale is just trying to straighten up all them filthy monkeys. Takes a hardass to break a hardass, and that's how all them black boys act. Like they are bad. Hale is gonna straighten that school up a hell of a lot! I'm sure all the white kids like him.

This post is just one more reminder to me of the mentality of this area! Grow up for goodness sakes people. This post just proves once again how redneck and simple minded it is in this area and before you even try and say it YES I am moving as soon as possible! You can't even go to some churches here without the preacher commenting on schools and ballgames, dang don't you people have any kind of life at all? Everywhere you work it's Glasgow against Barren or Barren against Glasgow. I don't have anything against either one, but if I had a child in the school system most definitely they would not be in either school simply for the hate factor they both produce. Sports used to be a good thing, not so anymore it is producing pure HATE in this community! No wonder you see so many homeschooled kids anymore! Same with the so called politicians in this are pure bullcrap is all it is, they could care less about this community growing and better jobs for people! It,s all about power and control. They are jokes in leadership! There are some fine souls in this town who you can actually have an adult conversation with but far and few between. Why can't you people read and talk about the world in general instead of talking about each other. Why can't you just be glad you are here and your kids are healthy? I promise you 10 years from now your child is not going to give a diddallysquate about a friggin ballgame or school because they will be out in the real world and that is what you parents need to be preparing them for.How sad it is for kids to be raised by parents whose whole world revolves around such childish behavior and producing nothing but pure hate in their lives against other people and their peers.And I bet you take them to church on Sundays don't you? Do you actually believe that your speech and actions on here are teaching them the love of Christ?

I disagree with the above on one point. My brother graduated in the 80s, he had a stint in the army, then moved back to the area, married, had children, and lived a middle class life. About the time his 2 kids got to be around 12, he started obsessing about his past mainly his school years because his kids were getting bullied. He pulled out the yearbooks, started literally obsessing over the mistakes he made in school and more so started obsessing over the people that pissed him off even more. I think a lot of the crap you endure in school comes back to haunt you especially if you have kids and when they get into the teen years, your children are your most valued possessions and you don't want to see them endure the same crap you went through.
