What has happened to the junior high? As a concerned parent, I'm hearing from students and teachers that the school morale has gone way down this school year. Everyone misses Mr. Hurley. Mrs. King is no where to be seen. She stays in her office with her door locked. My son says she only comes to lunch duty once a week. How did she get this job?

Mrs. King should be fired. My sister's best friend said, Mrs. King called her mom a bit*h in the principals office. She is always nagging the kids.

I agree with you Jimmy. My daughter is in the 9th grade and told me that the junior high is a different place this year than her previous 2 years. I was told Mrs. King gets booed at school assemblies by a lot of the students. She talks to the junior high students like they are 5 yr. olds. Mr. Cellers or Mr. Alphine would have been better to replace Mr. Hurley than Mrs. King. Dr. Moore really screwed up.

she never has anything nice to say to students or employees! I know several people who work there who will not return after many years of working there, because of her abuse. She has more the once called employees "stupid". She belittles everyone. She has a bad habit of asking inapproiate and personal questions of her employees just to judge and embarrass them.

I will say she is not always locked in her office because she is usually out roaming the halls looking for things to complain about.

I am not one to normally play the race card, but when it is up to her punishment for black students is always less severe then white students.

One the upside she has made the faculty closer, because of the universal dislike of her. I do not think she has a single friend at MJHS!

Pray for her. She lost her husband after a long illness last summer and she really didn't take any time off. Anyone should be held accountable. If she's not doing well then she needs to do something else. She needs our prayers.

I didn't bring the race card up earlier, but "keep it classy" is correct. Mrs. King does punish white students more harshly than black students. I've heard some black students brag about how they talked back to Mrs. King and only got a lunch detention or no punishment at all. Why is she handling student discipline anyway? Isn't that the job of asst. principals?

It is the job of the asst. principals, but she loves being in charge and taking interests that have little or nothing do with her. I am not sure how she still has a job, from my understanding she has multiple complaints filed against her with the Arkansas Department of Education, from current and former staff members of the district.

Things were better when schools were segregated. That's just a fact. Both black and white students fared better.

This post is proof of that. Things like this couldn't be said if schools were still segregated.

Things were not better. Did you attend the black school? Did you ever look in one of the books that came from the Almight White school. And you seem to think segregation was better.

I have a son at MJHS that plays football & there were several complaints among parents about how Mrs. King was not seen at the away football games. I hear she puts down the coaches in front of the other staff members.

You really have no clue what you are talking about. So the "Almight White" school, whatever the hell that is, sent books the black students didn't like, right? What, did is depict Santa Claus as a white man? Get that chip off your shoulder, Jesse.

Discipline problems were minimal when schools were segregated. Look at things now. Studies have actually show as much. Black students taught by black professors scored much higher on exams.

And I have nothing negative to say about King. I don't claim to know as much as some of you, but she has always appeared professional when I've been around her.

I was at the Junior High when Mrs. King was an asst. principal and she was always fair and balanced when it came to punishment, no matter what the race of the offender was. Even to this day when I see Mrs. King, she is always as kind to me as she was when I was at MJHS.

I know we are in the South, but this racist rhetoric is below even the most uneducated of people. And as far as segregation goes, studies may have proven there are higher test scores for African American students in segregated environments, but through segregation, these students aren't exposed to the social aspect of coexistance.

So they should be integrated and let's have both white and black students acting like animals, right?

Racism is rampant in the South, it's just that the part folks leave it is it's more prevalent in the black community these days.

No, Asphalt Bandit. You can be integrated, but the rules and enforcement of said rules should be fair and balanced. Thus keeping the students from acting like sociopaths. Is is possible for administrators and educators to be impartial when dealing with students regardless of race. But in all honestly the students are not learning these behaviors at school. They are learning to behave this way at home, in television, and films.

Racism may be rampant in the South, but as the rest of the nation is steadily moving towards a moore politically correct way of living, Southerners need to get with the program.
