It is absurd to find out how many students are failing in middle school. They do not offer any summer school for the kids that need help. Basically the school system here would prefer to set the kids up for failure, instead of giving them an education they deserve. As far as the home school that is offered to the expelled kids is a joke. They meet once a week in the public library and basically the rest of the week they are on their own. How is this giving them structure and discipline. The alternate school is another joke. Putting troubled children all together instead of solving the problem is not the answer. This is going to allow the children to have access to an education they are just singling out the troubled kids and are throwing them away. There is one teacher for the home school located in the library, which I believe is not qualified to run this program when she is 10 minutes late. Is this showing a good example if the teacher cannot be on time. Parents call the school, make formal complaints, lets get the children of this county a proper education so they can succeed in life.

i agree this school system sucks. my daughter works hard to do her work and if she or any of her class mates needs help the teachers does not take time to help. that is what is wrong with the school now no one wants to help the kids. that is why more kids fail in breckinridge county then any other county. time for us to stand up for our kids and do something about all the schools. i know i am this is the last time i am going to watch any one treat the kids around here this way.

I have been in the middle school and the problem is not the just on the teachers. Most of them are very good teachers. The problem that exists is the children have no respect for anyone and that comes from not being tought that at home. A child who is made at home to respect their parents will give that respect to others. The time I was there the students did as they pleased because there is no fear of discipline. when I was in school I knew if I got in trouble at school it would carrie over at home. these kid have got parents who take up for them and think there is no way my kid would do that. I agree the home school and alt. school is a joke, what they need are teachers who are able to bust their ass when the get out of line. there needs to be a little fear of what could happen. but like I said it starts at home, I bet my kid when they get to that age wont be a problembecause they know what will happen at home. BRING BACK THE ASS WHOOPIN IS MY VOTE.

disappointed citizen
having read your posts ... I will say that you certainly focus on the negative.
Yes there are issues and things that can be better.
But regarding Breck County Middle School ... you're way wrong.
This school offers an exceptional curriculum to deserving students.
So what the hell is a "deserving student"?
It's a student that goes to school to LEARN. not for babysitting or childcare.
If you haven't figured out how to be a parent and instill a work ethic in your child, to understand that public schools aren't miracle workers, if you haven't yet taken the time to quit whining about everything and getting off your ass and making a difference in your child's performance.....well just chalk it up to the kind of parent you are.
I'm thrilled at my children's education and completely expect them to excel in the future.
The teachers at BCMS deal with a lot of incredible stuff. And they keep on churning.
No I don't work there. But my kids go to school there.
Breck County schools offer a fine start to a serious young mind.

It all starts at home..... It seems as if alot of parents want to be their childs "best friend" instead of being a parent. Parenting means making tough choices, it means teaching responsibility, dignity, respect, self-worth AND discipline. I'm not saying some of you dont have valid points, but the teachers are not miracle workers.... There are some QUALITY teachers at that school, as I know several of them. Lets not just place the blame on the school system!!

I hear a lot of good things about HES and some about the High School, but never about the Middle School. I wonder why sometimes. All should look at the Principal and Assistant Principal if we have questions.

When I started my daughter @ BCMS I heard there was drugs & gang activity going on out there also.Is there any truth to that rumor? Don't think they would tell us parents that!! Hate to hear about the failure rates being so high..That does NOT impress me at all!!!!
What happened to all the ol' fashioned teaching? Ol' fashioned paddeling also? Is it still inforced or what? I thought that you could sign papers giving them permission?~~if they did wrong or don't do their homewrk then use the damn paddel! Remember when you could get a a$$ whoopin'@ school and if that happened you were in T-R-O-U-B-L-E for sure when ya got home so there for we stayed outta trouble!! I agree with the respect thingy also..They need respect for themselves as much as they do for the adults in their life. To much t.v., to many cell phones, playstation games, xbox and everything handed to them instead of them earning or working for it..Not enough momma & daddy time of course now-a-days its a 2 parent income cause if ya don't then things tend to get a lil' dicy!! Damned if ya do & Damned if ya don't!!! Catch 44 maybe?
