Southeast Teachers In and Out of Jail

I will begin by saying that I do agree with many of the comments here. If we as students are paying for our education it should be given with sober minds. However, with that said I too must say that Ms. Mullins is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Yes she may have issues due to drugs, but how many teachers can you name that is willing to meet you outside of class to help if you need it. She cared as much as to give her students her home number just in case they needed help. Now a student at a "real" college, I thank her for the A's that I am getting.

Jennifer Mullins is a FREAKING joke.! Ive had to deal with her bipolar as* all semester, her mood swings, her cussin and throwing stuff and walking out of class! I got my classes for next semester and requested I DID NOT have her for Eng 102. I don't care if I had to drive to Lexington, I would do that before I would be in her class again. I hope she stays in jail or the school board gets rid of her!
I was in her class for the past year and not once did I witness any of the stuff you mention. She never cussed. She never threw stuff. And not one time ever did she walk out of class. It's safe to say, you had a unique experience, because I've never seen that side of her and I've known her for many, many years.

Now, yes, she obviously has a drug problem and we all need to pray for her and everyone else in our town that has a drug problem. It's not just her. More than 50 percent of the people in our community are on drugs. When you walk down the street today, just remember, for ever person you pass who is not on drugs, you'll also pass one who is on drugs.

Education in this part of the country is mostly another form of welfare. Some teachers don't teach anything and seldom show up. Nobody cares because you are just a number and they need to show high numbers in enrollment. If you want an education, you can get one, but that is up to you. All colleges require you to take worthless classes because nobody would take them otherwise. It is really a shame what our education system has become. Internet classes are the biggest joke in the world!!!
I agree with you. Still I did benefit greatly from 2 or 3 online classes. They were very difficult because I was basically reading and teaching myself. With much work, determination and online support, I learned a great deal and did quite well. In-class instruction sometimes offers little anyway but it beats having to travel to attend a class. Harlan City should have the same classes available as in Cumberland. Driving and spending much money on gas are two things I do not miss and found bothersome, ridiculous and unfair to students living in Harlan city. Those living in Cumberland can basically walk or bike to class. The same for the teachers who refuse to travel to Harlan. That is the biggest disadvantage attending the school. After transferring it was great being able to walk to class and not having to leave early to attend. Like I said, I agree with you. Nothing replaces in class instruction from a qualified teacher..if you can get it.

Let me be more specific.

You can work really hard at Southeast and get excellent grades. My beef is with the fact you are in class with kids that, don't show up, do minimal work, essentially keep a seat warm, and in many cases they will pass or even get an A. It's pathetic. There are people there getting the same degrees as everyone else and their IQ absolutely has to be below average. I've read some of the stuff kids get As on and it's frightening. It's only a matter of time before any overachiever figures out they too can skirt by with minimal effort. Kids are rewarded for being poor or questionably mentally handicapped, but not for making good grades. Where's the justice in that?

Some people are not meant for higher learning. If we keep allowing schools to tarnish our degrees it's only a matter of time before you need a Bachelor's to get a minimum wage job. The devaluing of our hard earned educations has begun.

That is the truth Southeast will give degree to anybody. I knowed a guy who goes over there and is as dumb as it gets. I was on work study and was given the task of trying to tutor him, but he was to lazy to learn. His family however was friends with Dr. Ayers and his teachers were told to pass him. It's just not fair to the people who are smart and actually try to learn.

Rosa Fields, the black girl that runs all over town and goes to Comp care, got an associate degree from Southeast College and a Bachelor's degree from Lindsey Wilson through Southeast. This girl probably had to take special Ed in high school and here she is with degrees. What does that say about the colleges? If you don't believe me then ask around, the colleges. They will tell you what I just did. I could not believe this when I first found out.

Trust me college student and Little Jimmy, I know exactly what you are talking about. Anyone and I do mean anyone can get a degree from Southeast or Lindsey Wilson. Prime example is Tony Sweat. It is sad. I must say that it is a good thing that neither of these places offers a PhD. If they did everybody in Harlan County would be doctors.

Like Little Jimmy said Dr Ayers makes teachers give select students the grade he wants them to have. Thats not only unfair to those who try, but also to the teachers.

Tony has always helped me in any way he could. His personal life is his own business. When he is at work he is all about the helping people business.

Well it's good to hear he helped someone during the many years he has worked at Southeast. And I use the term work very jokingly.

Bottom of the barrel for real. Anyone who says it was difficult has to be double dumb.

You must have one of those degrees you speak of above, because you can't even spell Lindsey Wilson and are too lazy to look it up online.

You certainly don't have any right to be picking at anyone else's education.

Well I really can't seem to fathom why Tony Sweatt has a job. Every time I asked him for help he denied me by saying " He didn't have time." It's really hilarious that he didn't have time to help me with my credits, but however, he most certainly had the time to fondle a younger blonde on the back of her car right outside of his office. Yes, it makes perfect sense he is so so busy. And I must say I love his list of offenses on Harlan Detention Center.

I had this "English teacher" for two semester in a row and she is a good teacher. She was never late to class and she always had her classes planned out correctly. She graded very hard and she wanted each student to do well and succeed! I would have NEVER thought she would have gotten arrested for DRUGS! I think she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Everyone makes mistakes! It's sad that drugs are literally taking over EVERYONE! She is a teacher, so of course it will be looked down upon more. She has children, so that makes this situation even worse. People should want her to get help, not talk about her like they are in HIGH SCHOOL! Seriously is this the first time that you have heard of someone being arrested for DRUGS!? NO.. because we hear about it everyday! I wish her the best and I hope she can get cleaned up for herself and her family.

Her drug problem has been going on for years. Why do you think she got "laid off" from Evarts High School and James A? Ask around.
I do agree that she was a good teacher though. She just needs to get her act together.

She must make it a habit of being in the wrong place, because between Harlan and Bell county she has been arrested close to 10 time over the years. She had a record when she was hired by Southeast so she has had plenty of chances.
