you know if this was about the students that would be one thing. but it is not it is all about money that is all it is ever about.. it is never about the students or childern and that is a shame. i am a mavern resident and i dont like what is going on with this..i wish that student could go where they want to go and get the best education and do the best in school..when i was going to school i could go to three differant schools from where i lived, why can't people just leave things alone and let the students get what is best for them not what schools get the most money for that school get.. i think it is very sad.. unhappy malvern resident

I firmly believe that Ron Holt should not be the superintendent of the Malvern School District, He is a terrible man.

i am one of the parents faced with "THE LETTER". however i am not involved with the lawsuit. i had requested (in person) for mr golden to not make my children attend malvern district and gave hime the reasons even promised to bring verifying documents from DHS, my kids councelors and doctor stating that they need not be removed from the district they are in. he denied the request. magnet cove, where my children have been for four years now, gave me 2 days to prove residency (state law says 10 days if i remember correctly). or drop my kids from their school. they have known for a while that i married and moved out of their district. we sold our house new years day and are moving into a suitable distric. however it will be almost a month before we are able to completely be moved out of the malvern district. i contacted mr golden today to request my children remain at magnet until our move is complete. again, request denied! my husband graduated from malvern and can barely read or do basic math. need i say more about the education that a child can get from malvern school district. i want my kids to be happy, healthy and successful in every aspect of life. it isn't going to happen in malvern. we all have our reasons for "breaking the law". i only posting this because i want everyone to know that is "ALL ABOUT THE MONEY" and not "WHAT'S BEST FOR THE KIDS"!!!!!

I am the mom who my my children out of the district several years ago because my child was sexually abused at Malvern Junior High. Everyone who has had a negative experience at Malvern or knows of a negative experience needs to write a letter to the editor (200 words or less) and let the residents in Malvern know that things are going on in the school district that is being kept quiet. It has been happening for years and it is time We the people the tax paying citizens the people Malvern School District is receive their paychecks from are not going to tolerate what is happening any longer. No more cover ups. Years ago the Malvern School Superintendent was fired and the school board was asked to resign. If we stand together this could happen again.

Yes. these students have the right to go to any school of their choice. Malvern school thi nks they can do anything they want to do, NO MATTER what happens to the kids. My grandkids had to move from Malvern Junior High several years ago, because of the sexual harresmemt. It is still going on NOW TO THIS DAY!!!!!!!!!! That is why parents are fleeing to keep their children SAFE. Every one that has a problem with this needs to stand up and be counted, for our kids sake. also, this is one reason Malvern is not growing as a community, there is toooooooo much cover up. They(malvern, and the school does not want any bad publicity How can Malvern grow if no one wants to go to this school. BUT EVERYONE shop Malvern HA !

It cracks me up how people say it is all about the money and not about the kids! Well guess what??? It is about the kids! Brian Golden and the school board care enough about my kid (who goes to school at Malvern legally) to want to keep money in the district. Do you think your kids are the only kids that matter? No! My child matters too!

Yes it is all about the kids and what is best for the kids, but all the money in the world can not keep our kids safe, THAT'S WHAT IT IS ABOUT! HAve you ever had one of your kids threatend to be raped, a nd then killed because they told, an d the school not to anything about it! Well it did mine and alot more girls also. This did not just happen to mine, that is why the students are moving illegaly, or what evev way they can. THey had Carthage kids bused in here, it is still not enough money. what is it going to take to keep Malvern running, maybe better management of our money, for just one thing. NO MY KIDS ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES THAT MATTER!. You want your kids going to malvern HAVE AT IT, BUT NOT MINE.

It's about introducing your children to black children and their indigent behavior. They need to feel that they are to blame for the actions of the black race. They are not of course, but this is how the powers that be feel. Stand up for your right to be White. It is not the White races fault that blacks continually fail, it's their own. We should not have to be forced to add credibility to the ****** race. On average 9400+ rapes are committed by blacks against Whites per year, less then 10 per year are committed by Whites against blacks. Blacks account for only 12% of the population and commit over 55% of felonies also. They are the leaders in one area only, CRIME.******* suck!

Why does everything come down to race. We are talking about school, and their lack of caring what happens to the kids. what happened 12 years ago, was blacks boys against black girls and white girls, white boys against both black girls and white girls, They didn't care what the race was or is today. as long as they can touch or do what ever they want. The school dosen 't want bad publicity so it is swept under the rug. Well it is getting to high to sweep anything else under there. SO LETS GET IT CLEA NED UP. LETS GET SOMEONE IN THERE THAT CARES ABOUT THE STUDENTS, Most people feel like they can do whatever they want because they know nothing will be done about it.

The black students can not keep up the attendance or test scores up in order to keep getting money. They need the white students to bring the average up just to keep the school running. Blacks destroy everything they come in contact with, and are they only creature on earth that is unable to sustain it's self. Africa is the richest most fertile land on earth yet the people of Africa continue to live in grass huts and bathe in cow urine. The country has been rebuilt several times by the US and Japan, and currently China, and destroyed by the people that live in it every time. Portugal was at one time a world leader until they intergrated blacks and has been a failure every since. Haiti was the most prosperous place on earth when controlled by the French. And now it's one of the worst places on earth.******'s suck!

the legistration is out, there was no ruling on school choice. Why!!!!! everyone else has freedom of choice. work force, housing, you see freedom of choice on the commercials, but not our children . No. Malvern gets to keep the kids whether the parents want them their or not.WHY DOES MALVERN SCHOOLS GET TO SAY WHERE OUR CHILDREN GO TO SCHOOL. IT IS NOT RIGHT OR FAIR.!!!!! Did you know that Malvern schools are asking for everyones social security numbers,_ALL your information about you. drivers license numbers. about 9 pages of information on the parents. JUST TO SEE WHERE YOU LIVE. and they can put a stop to going to school where you think is best for your child. hump!!!!!!!!!! gustopo!

This is "2009" yall need to grow up.. this is not a race show .. Everyone should be able to work/go to school with any race. You going to school to learn what is being taught by the teachers "NOT" by other students and if you dont want to go to school b/c another race, ur not going to amount to much anyways..Malvern area is full of alot of Racial people b/c it whats they been taught from in the past.. GROW UP its going to be a different race were ever u go in life get used to it..

Sacramento guy, your English teacher should be slapped. Poor poor gramattical skills. Did you attend Malvern schools perhaps? If so, that is probably one of the problems and why parents do NOT want their children attending there. I attended Malvern, and happened to be one that could ignore the problems or dealt with them myself or through my peers. I DIDN'T want my children attending Malvern and having to deal with the issues in the classrooms and hallways that I had to deal with..........

Front page news, Malvern is suing the other schools for MONEY, tell me this is not about money. All the money used to hire the Little Rock lawyers, are they more impressive. no they are into this for is the money, money money money. dosen't matter what the parents want or feel like is right for THEIR children, its about what Malvern wants to do. they spend ALL this money on lawyers, and peeping toms trying to find out for sure where everyone live, going thru out tax records, to see where everyone lives, this cost money folks. Now they want our kids to come into a school that is unsafe, and it is!!!!!!!!!! Malvern wants us to shop Malvern, lets boycott all of Malvern, lets see if that helps us any.
