I have heard good and bad things about all of the schools in this area. Is marvell academy up to state standards on testing or are they as far behind as clarendon and hazen? Which school produces smart kids? Which school produces welfare recipieants?

That is a joke if I ever heard one! The students that come from most public schools are behind in academics when they attend MA. I know that for a fact. Compare their standardized test scores and their ACT scores. See who gets the most scholarships after the scores come out.

Since you have so many grammar errors you probably are a fine example of a public school student.
See the examples below:
Their.. should be there.
Academy should be capitalized.
There should be a period after Marvell Academy because you were stating another fact in the next sentence.
Then should be than.
Your comment should end with a period.

Marvell Academy S U C K S
Some of the board had a fit cause blacks from other schools they play were inside the gym. Racist, every one of them. No blacks ever attended there, while every other school in the MSPSA has black students.

Yeah, because everyone knows Marvell public schools are such a beacon of hope and higher learning, and they aren't racist towards whites at all. Can't say I blame them one bit for paying to avoid that cesspool.

obviously you are no eagle alumni otherwise you would know that Marvell Academy is a part of the MAIS not the MSPSA or whatever bullsh*t you just came up with. If you don't want to send your kids to school at MA then don't. There's no need to complain about how stuck up they are and how there are no African Americans there because regardless of your uneducated statements.. They are still there and aren't going anywhere just as any other private school.

I don't always agree with GP, but he is spot on. If you live near Marvell and can afford private school tuition, why would you send your kid to MPS? That's child abuse!

Is that how you think Black people are...you're and idiot and Marvell High is the only Public school in the county besides Barton that's not controlled by the State. Marvell Academy was founded on a racist agenda and it had nothing to do with white parents not wanting their kids to go to a public school. It was white parents not wanting to accept change at that time which was integration...It's because of comments like yours is why the schools ate divided...I'm an American Soldier and I have a college degree and salute my Alma Mater!!!!

What's the difference in white kids having a school for themselves and blacks having the United Negro College Fund, Black History Month, and other pro-black organizations? No difference at all. Why is it that only white people are accused of being racist? There is no way in hell I would send my children to a public school. Blacks have the reputation they have because of the way they act!
Why? It's because bigotry + power = racism. The last time I checked, most blacks are in Arkansas are in no position of power to hold anybody back from anything. They can trash whites all they long but they can't come together with the backing of millions of dollars to start a school to separate themselves from another group of people. Also, what did you learn about black history at Marvell academy....yeah that's what I thought....crickets. black organizations exist because blacks didn't get the same priveledges you continue to get so they had to find a way to collectively even the playing field. By the way, its funny that you can stereotype an entire race of people, yet no one judged you based on the actions of Adam lanza...think about that. Dude you need to leave Arkansas and turn off fox news and start getting to know your fellow Americans. We may be black but we are all not lowlifes just like you.are not the next school shooter.

Thank God they don't waste student's time with a stupid afrocentric curiculum at Marvell Academy. Blacks do have the power to assault and sometimes kill whites in Phillips County, often without ever being prosecuted. That's a lot of power. Marvell Academy does not prohibit students of any race from enrolling in their school. If you want to see a black student from Africa, the US or anywhere else at MA, pony up the tuition money and make it happen. Otherwise shut the hell up and enjoy your crummy drug and violence infested public school.

So black folks in Arkansas can just kill at will and get away with it?...when did they legalize weed in Arkansas?...dude, just say no... Especially before you type. You can learn a lot from black folks. You are a perfect example of the phrase, those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Your problem is that you have a deep seated hatred for a people you have probably never spoke to. Have you at least saw a black soldier in uniform and thanked him for his or her service?...probably not. Yeah I know. You don't have a racist mindset....right? Quite frankly, if you flip burgers at the local Sonic and shit on black folks... I could care less. The only time I would have a problem is if you resort to violence or own in a position of power to eliminate black folks from competing in any endeavor because of the perceived stereotypes you have painted ALL black folks with.

As for Marvell Academy, I could give 2 shits if they let black kids in or not. My argument is that these people surround themselves with an all white world, knowing the world outside of that bubble doesn't look that way. They aren't doing these kids any favors by systematically keeping black kids out even if they have the dough to go or the athletic talent for a scholarship. Again I could care less but the rest of the world doesn't function with your ideology...and your little all white world is shrinking.

I don't think there has ever been a black student at Marvell Academy. I would never send my child there, the community is absolutely corrupt.

It's all relative. How corrupt are the public school systems in the area? Marvell, Lee County, and Helena are all in the top 15 or so schools in PER PUPIL expenditures EVERY YEAR, been around $12-15K PER KID, and yet few of the kids in the schools are getting any kind of eduction.

The payrolls are bloated with unneeded adminstrative positions, and there is no accountability in these local public school districts. Rampant corruption. The state should take them ALL over, get rid of any local leadership, and bring in new leadership.

The local private schools are not perfect by any stretch, but they are worlds better than the alternative. KIPP is another alternative, but no way I'd send my children to the cesspools that are the public schools in this area. Parents who care homeschool their kids, send to private school, or send them to KIPP. What that leaves in the regular public schools is not something that I want my kids around.

As far as black/ white, a black girl attended Lee Academy in Marianna a couple years ago. Her father was a forest ranger who was stationed in Marianna for a year. I didn't hear anyone say anything negative at all about it. Everyone I asked about it said "it was past time for it to happen".

Racism works in all directions, and from what I've seen since moving here, there are more black racists than white in this area. No excuse for it in any context, but it's not whitey holding down the poor black folk.

The school problems can be placed squarely on the shoulders of the local leadership, who are overwhelmingly black. They are refusing to educate these children, instead figuring out ways to line thier pockets and the pockets of their friends and family. It's sad. Hopefully the state take overs will give these kids a fighting chance at an education.
