If he is wise, he left or maybe new principal probably ran him off. Look for that school to go down like a lead balloon without Randy Ward's leadership.

The "D" leadership? Football coach went to Chipley.

That sucks for MHS. He is a great football coach. Anyone know why he left? Next thing you know, Blanton will leave MHS. God help the MHS sports program - sounds like it's going downhill in a hurry.
Wow

MHS actually had students leave Chipley High School to play for Coach Armstrong at MHS. I wonder if they will go back now.
Wow

I heard new MHS principal fired softball coach and relieved others on staff of coaching responsibilities. While academics are important, sports matter too because they provide motivation, inspire collaborative effort, and rally students behind school.

I hope the new MHS football coach is as good as Coach Armstrong, although it is hard to imagine. The players at MHS are so upset by Armstrong's departure. The talent at MHS is overwhelming, and the wrong head football coach can shatter dreams. Good thing Armstrong was there for Bradley Battles and Quan Boykin.

From what I hear Marianna football was out of control. Why did it 13 instructional and noninstructional staff need to be away from their actual school duties either all day or part of the day on football fridays? That is ridiculous because football is an extracurriculur activity. Education is supposed to come first. What is next shutting school down on friday? Did the AD not plan at all to need this much effort all day on friday? Armstrong is a terrific coach and this will be Marianna's loss but this amount of time away from actual education duties during school hours is ridiculous. I hope Nieves remedies this situation and maybe some teaching will occur and MHS wont be a D school anymore. Good job to allow this practice Ward.

Leadership?? A "D" school, worst in the county, and Randy Ward has great leadership? Wow. And the poor football coach would actually have to do something in the school rather than play on the football field all day long...Heaven fobid.
I would love to bet that Mrs. Neves will have Marianna to a 'B' possibly an 'A' school. Nice choice, Miller.

Everyone wants MHS to be an "A" school, or at least better than a "D". It is an excellent school no matter what grade the state gives them. There's always more to a school than just the grade it receives - just like there is more to a student than the grades he or she receives in school. The morale among students and faculty at MHS is so low. They need something to uplift them such as excellent football and basketball. IF the state thinks sports are so unimportant, then they should get rid of all sports programs. For some strange reason, most schools still participate in sports programs. You probably want to get rid of band, clubs, yearbook, and all extra curricular activities that make school exciting. Unfortunately, not every student is excited about getting an education. Learning will happen only for those students if they are MOTIVATED to do so! The powers that exist in ivory towers. Climb down and look around.
Why do you say "you would love to bet..."? Sounds like you would love to, but just can't make that bet. Passive writing is weak and Freudian.

What a bunch of garbage to justify abuse of the education system. Athletics is an extracurriculur activity just like band, clubs, yearbook, chorus, quiz bowl; however, how much time do the coaches and hangers-on of those activities get off and how much money is spent on facilities, uniforms, etc. for those coaches? You would do well to remember that the school is there for education and athletics is a small part not the main part.

You have to motivate kids before you can teach them. Take away sports, band, academic bowl, yearbook, etc. and see how motivated they are then. FCAT scores will go from bad to worse.

Parent, you are right. Students are much more motivated by having substitute teachers every Friday as opposed to real teachers and by having a half a million dollar weight room instead of better computer and lab equipment. I don't how I could have been so mistaken.

What I said is that students are not going to be motivated by taking away their extra curricular activities. I am glad you won't be taking the FCAT reading comprehension test at MHS, you wouldn't help the school grade.

What does "you would do well to remember" even mean? If you want to say that the point of having an education system in society is to educate its citizens, then just say it. Of course, everyone agrees. Look, the point of eating is to sustain life, which is also an important endeavor. Yet, throughout the evolutionary process, we humans have learned that in order to get our kids to eat what we know is best for them, we need to jazz it up and MOTIVATE them to eat stuff they don't like. Having extra curricular programs at school is like getting a toy with a happy meal from McDonalds or getting a prize after every dental visit...Kids have to be motivated. And by the way, so do we. This is abuse?

Dear Observer:
Your fortune cookie needs to say, "Envy and bitterness will cause you to make poor life decisions."

I am glad you will not be observing me.

I'm glad "observer" won't be observing me too! Here's the funny part: We will all have an entire year to observe "observer"! And while eating the fortune cookie, check out "America's Top Chef" where most of the new contestants are former judges. They are not having fun being on the other side of the fence and regret their past harsh criticisms made to former contestants.
"You would do well" to watch this reality tv show as it will prepare you for the reality you will encounter while sliding down the slippery slope of that ivory tower.
