Sorry to burst your bubble, but the article does not state that this will help the middle school students at all...it says that the high school teachers were trained.....in fact, it makes no mention of middle school students at all except in reference to the school being shared (their school, BTW).....once again the middle schoolers are getting the shaft from a school system who wants to make constant claims about how they want ALL students to get the best education available....can't say that I'm surprised though.....they are just following through with their already lopsided plan that benefits some students over others because they are somehow "more important"....and since the sheep of the community have done nothing but blindly follow them....why should they change the plan now?

High school students are much more important than middle school students.

High school students are preparing for college. When is the last time you saw a middle school student get into college?

Plus, middle school students are loud obnoxious immature jerks that should be locked up somewhere until the are at least a couple of years older. Have you seen them at the mall? Horrible!

High school students are much more entitled to that school than the middle students anyway. We can beat them up!

IMO, there is not ONE student who is more important than another in any school system....starting with even the little pre-schoolers.....every parent in the county pays their taxes and ALL of their children should be provided a quality education....your selfish opinion that "high school students are much more important than middle school students" is wrong and untrue. Sure, there are SOME high school students that are preparing for college and I think that everything that can be done to help you with that should be, just not at the expense of another group of students.....for your information, my child is NOT a "loud obnoxious immature jerks that should be locked up somewhere until the are at least a couple of years older"....although you might have proven YOURSELF to be with statements like that and "High school students are much more entitled to that school than the middle students anyway. We can beat them up!".....and she IS taking high school classes in 8th grade and is therefore, also preparing for college....maybe more than you....who knows? Even though your comments were stupid and rude, I will still wish you luck....sounds like you may need it!!!!

Some of the high school students are already taking college classes. I think that is why they have to been in class so many hours to receive the credits. I do feel the high school students feel like they are being attacked by alot of the middle school parents. I understand that middle school students are taking some high school classes but if they need to they can take the class again. The seniors do not have this option.

I was one of the teachers presenting about how we in Salem, Virginia use Moodle. (I consider us sort of SW Virginia) The middle school teachers also have access to this technology and are free to use it. As a matter of fact if you check the site, some middle school teacher have their classes set-up already. It was a real pleasure to work with the folks in Louisa County. You are very fortunate to have such caring teachers and administrators and we wish you well and are willing to help in any way we can.

Mr. Sebolt---

Thank you for this information....it is encouraging to know that there are middle school teachers who are using it.....if you notice, middle school was not mentioned in the article at all. I guess it is just easier for folks to say the middle schoolers can just take their classes over....I suppose that is true...but how detrimental to an academic career might that be and why aren't their educations just as important....for example, a straight "A" student in 8th grade, taking Geometry, currently applying for Governor's School....no, that kid has really no interest in college already or her future.....whatever! Anyway, I appreciate you and the other folks who came to help ALL of these students:)
