How many more good teachers, faculty, staff and students are going to have to leave before this stops? This school is going down hill so fast and there is absolutely no concern for the students from the administration. All they are worried about are their trips and how much money they can get off of grants. Too bad there won't be any kids left to spend the grant money on.

Who are you talking about leaving? I haven't heard about mass defections. Just curious.

No drama. No naming any names. No mass defections, but if you add up everyone that has left or been run off, you might be surprised. Just ask the kids what they think of the school and how quickly things have gone downhill. Ask the teachers, but you might not get anything from them because everyone is afraid they might be next. No need for me to go into detail on here, anyone can ask around and find out on their own. Such a shame!

I just heard that Coach Davis is leaving.. Hasn't he been here forever? I also heard that the teachers are afraid to talk, because they are afraid of loosing their jobs.

There are some teachers that like to talk to much! The teachers that actually care about our kids are the ones that are being treated unfair. The ones that kiss Mr. Shacks butt are the ones running their mouth. I have talked to several parents and students and have heard pretty much the same thing. I have talked to one parent that has called the educational civil rights department and has written a complaint about the school and the parent has under their rights to bring a lawsuit against the school and a few teachers. There will be an investigation on Highland High School for violating the rights of their child. It will be made public in the newspaper when the investigation starts.

I do know some of the ones who have been "run off" and it's about time. Come on now, you have to admit that there have been some not so good teachers and administrators that needed to go. The majority of the teachers are wonderful, but if we go through the list of the ones who have been fired or "run off", the school is better now than it was. Coach Davis is a good one that is leaving, but he has had little success lately,with a declining win percentage over the past few years. Probably time for a change.

Coach Davis success could be due to lack of talent. Ive seen a lack of talent in all Highland teams for the past few years. Probably should be thank for the amount of games he did win

No it's not his lack of our teams winning. it's our superintendent wanting younger teachers because apparently they work better with high school students. He is wanting all older teachers to retire.

The superintendent is a power grabbing idiot--our school board is asleep at the wheel

Oh, if you only knew how good you all have it with this school. It is so much better than many schools in the state of Arkansas. You all need to quit bitching on Topix and do something about it if you are so concerned.
