Disappointed Watcher

Saint Paul, MN

#1 Jan 26, 2009
I have been a loyal watcher of KAIT News for many years. Have always thought they have done a great job with the Weather, and Breaking News in our areas. Until, this past few weeks. I know first hand that they have been contacted on many different occasion concerning the coach in Rector. "Coach Rajohn gets caught messing with 10th grader and this is not the first time. Last year it was with a 12th grader" KAIT8 reported him leaving for medical reasons.
I know half a dozen parents along with myself, that have contacted KAIT8 about this story and they have not done anything. Do they not care enough about our children who are in this school to aleast find out what going on, and report it... I mean come on, they have reported on stupidier things before than this...I really hate that they have turned their backs on this story. I have heard that there is some big wig there that possilbly came from Rector, dont know if thats true or not, but I feel very let down that they have done or said nothing...
Its a shame, but I no longer watch KAIT8. I watch the Mo.News who does a great job...
Just my view...

A few years back the Paragould High School drama teacher was caught messing with a student and watching porn on his laptop at school. The State Police even got involved. KAIT8, along with the local newspapers, never reported any of it.

What a shame that KAIT reports on such things as they do but than dont report the news that would protect our children. They are always talking about Community and Taken Care of Its Hometown, where are they now, when theres a hometown school thats needing help getting to the truth about their teachers who sleep with students. Just read on Rector Forum about the Math teacher sleep with student last year, and she is still teaching as well, and the student still attends school there.
What must be done, to get this cleared up.
I have already made plans on moving my children out of this school system. What a shame it is that Rector School Auth. allow this to continue to be a reaccuring problem.

Well, before you move the kids to another school, just let me say that this kind of problem is EVERYWHERE. Some get caught, some don't. Those who get caught are usually allowed to "retire" or "relocate" so that there is no bad press. It is a sorry state of affairs - no pun intended.

Wow! Thanx for starting this thread. This is a subject that has never been discussed, but sorely needs to be!

The reporters at KAIT are such clueless puppets. And that guy that gets on and gives a commentary and ends with, "help us make this a better Region 8" is SO FULL OF CRAP! Just report the news...the good, the bad, and the ugly! So Sad.
