Improvements? Where are they? The school is NOT on track. They just lost a case Tuesday. A big whopping $500,000 worth. FOR RACISM AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE. How is that on track???

Was not thatcase pending before this school year even started.Hughes will never get on track as long as people continue to be negative, bringing up old stuff and in the midst of people trying to improve and do better. This is a new school year. How can we support the school and keep them on track now that that case is over and in the past. Be a little more positive. It is funny that the people with the most complaints and negatives leave instead of take any effort to stay and help. You should run for the board, and put your energy to good use. Hughes needs you, because you want progress and that is what hughes needs.

As long as people I care about continue to work for the school, I just might run. But, I will tell you, as long as the people who are on that school board now continue to stay there, along with the interim superintendent, that school will continue to go down hill. In my other post, I stated that Hughes has a lot of racial hostility now. I don't know that I would want to go in and fight for the school that badly. I have no children there. The people who work there are grown. They can take care of their selves,(themselves?). In any case , Hughes needs help by removing a lot of who is in there now and bringing back people who care. BUT, they have to have parents cooperation as well. The parents in Hughes just don't give a damn anymore about the way their children behave, whether or not they are on time, or whether they have supplies or not. Everyone believes they are ENTITLED to have their childrens supplies bought for them, and believe that their children do NOT have to be disciplined. The children are rude, mean, and foul mouthed. That is only part of it. Children these days are THUGS, or THUG WANNABE. And the parents think it is perfectly okay. And the school board thinks it is perfectly okay to behave in the manner they are now...Which is why they are losing...

The school needs a certified superintendent to take over immediately! Someone with the qualifications and experience needs to be in the position. Several individuals need to be removed from the School Board immedaiately! They board will do better being under-represented than to have their venom involvd in anymore of the school's affairs. A handful of pitifully ineffective teachers need fired immediately. Others will take their place if necessary.

If these things happen, the school will be in a much better place. The parents will be much more likely to be on board with our kids' education if the people representing the ditrict are professionals.

Well now, 3 board members decided to appeal the ruling with their own lawyers. I am sorry, Hughes school board is STUPID..I guess they are pushing to shut the school down... HUGHES CANNOT AFFORD THIS
