As anybody had problems with the Canton Public Schools violating the United States Civil Rights of whites? I found the Superintendent, Dr. Luckett and especially Ruby Holden, the director of personnel to be absolutely racist against white people.

Don't get me started about their principals... More prejudice and racism against whites. Went to an interview and the African American so-called "principal" just screwed around with his cell phone DURING AN INTERVIEW! Dick head!


If you have experience of the violation of you United States Civil Rights by the Canton Public Schools, contact a lawyer IMMEDIATELY!

how can they be so racist and prejudice when the school district 99.9% Black. White people have never sent their children to Canton Schools in Massive numbers because they are the ones whose racist and prejudice. That is the reason why Canton Academy exists to this very day. I believe that dwight Luckett and his administration is very fair considering the history that some of the Whites have in this town. Maybe it is you that is confused about their attitudes because of the way yours is.

really, you think that it is the whites who are racist, i have lived in canton for 15 years of my life, i attended school at canton elementary, and the middle school, i was harassed on a regular basis, teased for being white, and in the 3rd grade i was cornered in the bathroom by 5 girls.yet i still went to school there, after the 4th grade when i began to be ridiculed by the staff too, that is where my mother drew the line, so no it is not because white people dont send their kids to these schools, its because ignorance is bliss and these people are to ignorant to realize it is the 21st century.

The Canton Public Schools

Violate the US Civil Rights of whites and every other racial group. They don't care.

If anyone wonders why they have pathetic schools that nobody would want to send their children, just visit that place.

To the people who run that school district, I guess living in poverty is "good enough." For all others, send your children to a private school.

I don't believe the district is racist at all. I know the district has made great strides and gains over the last years. It is sad that for years the people of Canton has not valued education. Now the district has pushed education and has helped ensure that many children have graduated from high school and has gone on to college. Thank you Canton Public Schools and its leadership for caring. Shame on the ones who for years took advantage of the system.

Canton schools have a long way to go. Unfortuantely the state had to take over the high school in order for change to take place, in which I think is a wonderful thing. More kids from the Canton High are now graduating. However the Canton schools still have allot of tweeks to work out. People leave Canton every year due to the lack of education at the schools. CSAS was a excellent school for a while and than just started going down hill. They are now struggling to hold on as a title 3 I believe, but in the early days they were a title 5. Nichols middle school use to be horrible when my kid was there back in 2002, but they have gotten a little better due to the principal and faculty. That school will not be an option for my other child. As a parent you have to do the best for your child. Trust and believe allot of the teachers in principals teaching over in Canton schools, their children go elsewhere??? What does that tell you?? EXACTLY the schools are not good enough for thier children. Take heed and invest in your children the same way they do. I love where I live in Canton, but the schools are no where up to parr. That is not all fault of the schools, as their needs to be more parent accountability as well.

Every public employee in Canton and Canton school district is extremely racist. Why would whites want anything to do with Canton anyway? The place is a dump, and only getting worse. Just leave it to the spooks. They evolve backwards. They'll be chasing each other around with spears in no time.

I teach in Canton and I have enjoyed meeting/discussions with my co-workers (who are African American and Caucasian). I have not felt that I have been discriminated against by anyone. I feel that everyone is there for the kids! It is important for all adults to accept responsibility in a child's education. The teachers and administration are working hard to turn around the schools. I feel that the schools would benefit if parents and community members would get more involved in the schools - take the time to volunteer. Come in and volunteer to read to elementary and special education students....come in and volunteer to middle and high school students. These students need STRONG female and male figures to look up to, they need MENTORS! Take the time to volunteer, it really does make a difference in the life a child! These children need to know that people care about them and their future!

And to The massa - Canton is NOT a dump and they DO NOT evolve backwards! Oh, and I live in Brandon and my children go to Rankin County Schools...and they have their own "issues", that much of the public does not know about and they keep things hush, hush in their schools.
