Dear School Board, want to bring our schools current- stop all this unnecessary paperwork each year. These beginning of the year forms have no real purpose. Put all this stuff on line and let parents log in to update. Stop spending on textbooks and go to e- readers. Research all the info about school start times and base school hours on what's best for kids- not bus routes. Create after school homework and tutoring labs, that's better than sending kids home to empty houses at 2:15 in the afternoon. Middle and High School students go to school sleepy, maybe other parents have better success getting them to bed than I do.

Middle and high school kids go to school sleepy? Come on now. They should have a curfew. Also, they need to learn some responsibility, and they don't learn it by laying in bed. As parents, it is our responsibility to instill work ethics in our children. If they're at home at 2:15 , then they need a to do list to work on. They're not babies. Let's stop treating them as such. I totally agree with the e reader comment though. Desperately needed.
yeah right

E-readers?! Yeah, I can see the teachers sending the e-readers home with the ghetto kids. They don't respect anything that they have! Or momma will sell it to get her nails did.
