Selfish.
Cowardly.
A form of bullying.

I think they're going to create bigger problems for themselves and the community in the long run. If families truly want out if the Blytheville district, they'll pack up and move away, just like so many have already done. And then who's going to be left to attend their schools?

I feel they think they are protecting the school enrollment. I am not sure that will help. People feel strongly about where they want to send their children and will probably find a way to move them to another district.

So many if my friends left town over school issues and people making them feel guilty for sending their children to another school. They just gave up and left. I think that is sad. I don't have the answer but all this bashing hurts people and the community.

I have friends that left for the same reason. People who have been friends forever don't speak and I think that is wrong. I do not think that is the way God intended us to treat each other. These people attend church and should follow the example set by Jesus! Forgive and go on with your business leave others alone, it is their children

Blytheville has no choice. They have to find away to not allow school choice. Every student that can leave Blytheville will leave, and no student from any other schools will come to Blytheville.

Blytheville has to get the state money per student so they can keep all the fluff in their budget

contact your state representative and state senator if you want School Choice

Those individuals can help get Blytheville Schools in line with the new Act

IF you would read all of the story you would know that they had no choice. The Blytheville Schools are under 2 federal Court Orders. They have to go with what makes them correct or they could stand to be in violation of the law.

You are known for making some comments that make sense on here but this time you blew it. They have to go by the Federal Court Order!

really? It's a good excuse. If that were there only reasoning they wouldn't have mentioned the 41 students they were already losing . They waste so much money sending teachers off for meetings/conferences.. San Antonio / New York and who knows where else...
