With the ego of GT, you would have to think he left or "retired" as king of VV ? ONLY because his estranged wife gave him an ultimatum !! leave it or loose it all; bye bye town house, river house, BBQ joint, family and all -> what an ultimately arrogant looser, truly abused his position. Could have easily been prosecuted, probably should have been; do they give prison time for sexual harassment? Ruined family lives, embarrassed or lost many friends, and so here's your example of a downtown Bapt. church deacon that believes he's above the law. Guess ya'll better check up on the others as well. Move this pigheaded iron to the front of the "go to downstairs" line... truth is a deadly monopoly

I guess everyone saw the statistics provided by Roy Okert yesterday in the Sun? Jonesboro has a much higher remediation rate for the kids they send to college than other schools in the county. VV AND Brookland are outperforming them. So, for all this talk about matching up elites, it looks like VV and Brookland provide better overall preparation for college than JHS. Looks like it's time for Wilbanks and crew to head back to the drawing board to try and cook up another gimmick to get more federal tax dollars and convince the good people of Jonesboro that this is "now" the best solution. Get out while you can.

So, you are equating elite, with kids going to college? I believe it was the graduate from VV who claimed she was not prepared for college by attending VV.

Clearly you took statistics at JHS. So, that's one student that is not prepared and appeared to have an axe to grind. You're using one student to ignore the collection of a larger sample of students. See, that's how stats work, you don't use one case to reach a conclusion, you take a larger sample and then you can draw meaningful conclusions. That's the just of the Ockert article, by and large, JHS students have a higher remediation rate that other schools in the county.

And your point is? JHS also has a larger percentage of students on free or reduced lunch, I wonder if there is any correlation. Please tell me the number of National Merit scholarship winner VV and Brookland have, or the average amount of scholarship money per student? I don't question the larger number of remediation rate, do you question the scholarship numbers?

I think the only way to settle this is through a Hunger Games type competition between Valley View & Jonesboro. Each side picks 10 students and 10 faculty to compete and we'll set the event at Craighead Forest. Rather than lethal weapons we'll make it paintball guns & Super Soakers. We'll appoint official referees and judges from ASU and ask the ASU broadcast department to set up cams for viewing. The winning school will get to make ride a float at the Christmas parade pulled by the losing team members. I'm afraid this is the only intelligent way to resolve this dispute.

You're the one that posted wanting to know about VV and Brookand's National Merit finalists and scholarships, but you cannot provide info on JHS. Hmmmmmmm ... Maybe that's because you don't really know.

In 2012, JHS had 3 semi-finalist and VV had 1, Brookland 0. I'm not going to look up every year for you, surely you are able to google the internet yourself.

why would vv hire a substitute employee that takes nude pictures of herself on her phone and took it to school and let it get into the hands of a 14 boy who supposedly sent them to everyone in her phone book on her cell phone without her knowing. I think someone that irresponsible should not be allowed back on a school campus. But im sure vv didnt let that news get out.

So, nobody won a scholarship, they were only semi-finalists? So, you basically came in 2nd and VV came in 3rd.

Why do you keep blaming the poor students? You seem to have a bias against them? The effects of free lunch should largely disappear among students at college. If you earn a high enough score to get into college then you should be able to compete. Further, you still have no idea how statistics work. One or two students could get a large scholarship and skew the average higher.
