I am looking to form a parent support group to ensure our children at the high school. I want to address with the Board and the school why our children do not have enough text books so they may bring one home to study. If there are no text books, taechers can not teach and students gets poor grades. As a parent I find this unacceptable and plan to attend the Board meeting and Site Based Decision Making council meetings to address my concerns. if ther are any concerned parenst out there please respond for support.

I have so many concerns! First of all, I needed documentation of a school record from the Perry County School Board for my child. I had my identification in my purse because I don't know anyone that works there and I knew they would ID me, but they did NOT. The documentation was all I needed to reapply for my child's social security card that had been misplaced.
My child is failing at Perry Central. He had always been a good student and very smart, but does not seem to be getting any encouragement from teachers, staff, or even the principal. He was told by a "teacher" that he was not liked because of who his biological father is. I have talked to these teachers, principal until I am blue in the face. It doesn't seem to do a bit of good for my child! The first day of high school my child was taken into the gymnasium by the principal who proceeded to curse about girls not wearing mini skirts too short so that they look like a f'in whore, etc,....... My child was shocked to hear a "respectable adult" talk this way to them. My child has NO RESPECT for the majority of teachers at Perry Central because of this. I don't either. The teachers and principal should show respect for others and each other if they want respect from the children. Are we the only two people out of hundreds that have concerns, or are we the only parents who really talk to our
children??????????

I'd take my child out of there so fast it would make Estill's head spin like the exorcist girl. I'd send him to Hazard no matter what JPA says about not allowing county kids to go there.

I thank God that my kids did not have to go to PCC. If this is going on I would be at every meeting and John Paul would recognize my voice because I called so much.

I too have a child that attends PCC. I have many concerns with the school. First, the book issue. During the past exams, I asked my child where her books were and she didn't have any books at all to study with for er exams. Ridiculous! All she had to go on were notes that the teachers gave her and notes she took the first semester.

Secondly, I would like to address the bullying issues. I have been to that school many times and at any given time you will see kids behaving like delinquents, cussing, threatening to beat someone up. Ridiculous!

Thirdly, The bathroom issues. You CAN'T walk in to the bathrooms at PCC without getting knocked out with cigarette smoke. I've told my kid to stay out of the bathrooms on break and use it only while classes are going on so she doesn't have to inhale all of that smoke and also so she doesn't get accused of smoking by chance a teacher does walk in.

And finally, I would like to see the teachers monitor their class rooms a little more closely. I've heard several kids say that at any time if you go to the choir room, you can go to a back room off of the choir room to make out.

I can't imagine a school system without enough text books for each child. How do they decide which child gets a book and who doesn't? How can you possible do your best without the material to study? A college is only going to look at grades, they won't know that your child did not have the same advantages as the child with a book. Do we not pay school taxes? Did our property taxes not go up this year because of the Perry County Schools? It seems to me that instead of building new schools and talking about new high school football fields the priority would be adequate textbooks.

You guys go on and take your kids to Hazard. They are no better-there is always a scam there. There are good teachers at PCC-just power struggles at top positions. I like Estill

From what I know, that school has changed over the past five years. It's not that great anymore. Don't get me wrong, my family and I like Estill, but doesn't he have to switch schools?

My son is autistic & one of his teachers Mr Jones is always smartazzing him & making rude remarks. I too have spoken to estill & it does no good. This jones has no business working w children that have emotional & autism issues. My son gets straight A's & doesn't deserve the treatment he gets from mr jones...my other son is ridiculed & called names because of 13yr old trollops that like the drama they create by switching boyfriends every week & talking the crap that 13 yr old girls are known for. I had girls too so I know how they operate...time has only made the problems worse...not better. One father was going to press chgs on my son for something he did not do until he (the father) was shown a letter written by his problem daughter that proved what a troublemaking little snot she really is....hazard would be worse due to the fact they are all little rich kids w mommy & daddy spoiling them & teaching them that they are better than anyone else...

I commented on this thread because the problems were brought up. Not one time did anyone say problems don't exist at all schools. As you can see by many of the posts, parents are addressing their concerns to the school. The person who started this thread is trying to get more parents to do the same. But of course, I can see how some may have missed this point entirely. So instead of you getting on here boo hooing about parents discussing PCC on Topix, how about trying to read through the posts to see what what folks are actually saying.

Well said...no one has cursed or bashed anyone, we simply want answers. I am going to the open house tomorrow at the high school from 4:30 to 6:30 to address these issues. Mr Neace has been nic to me but he is only one man and changes need to be made and parents need to force them to do so. I will be attending the Board meeting as well on the 15th at 6:00 pm and the site based cpouncil meeting next week. If no chnages are made I seek higher authorithy.

As a well educated working parent who demands my child receive a good education is not going to take budgetary excuses so come out and support yopur child and their futrue tomorrow. Many people today wait on someone else to deal with issues and concerns but parenst are responsible for theri childs education and we need to support them.

I feel no pity. If you were such concerned parents, you wouldn't raise your children in Eastern Kentucky. You are making a conscious decision to handicap your children in life. Drugs, crime, low educational standards, little opportunity, and worst of all, a dirty accent that no employer outside of the region wants to hear or is willing to hire. Maybe you should just start teaching them they ways of the welfare system, that's where they are heading if they are raised in Eastern Kentucky.

NOT Like THIS.

Those that do SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED by the parents.

WHAT? Should they be paying for the schools via taxes and just "shut up and take it?"

Yeah, that's what you'd like.

Parents....DEMAND Decency.

All people ned continuing education and that includes students, teachers, principle, the general public, etc. An company, school, buisness, etc is only as good as the management and sometimes changes have to be made.
