I heard that they were switching them again. If so the primary will be going to East End school. They use to switch them every few years.

They have been saying this and now the word has gotten out. Middlesboro has lost A LOT of kids to surrounding schools. Not for sure why but something should be done. There is a REASON or REASONS this is happening. WAKE UP!

the reason eastend school is shutting down is simple. politics, when you hear the word budget cuts, you can expect cuts starting from the bottom. the students, staff then facualty. you will never see budget cuts starting from the top (administration). cant do away with the chushy jobs.

This time i heard it was because of mold.
This time.
Every year there's a DIFFERENT reason they're gonna "close a school."
But, if it's not safe/healthy, why did they let our kids go there THIS year?
I feel a lawsuit coming.

East End is not going to close, but it may change. What probably will close is the present board of education building which is the old junior high on 20th street. If the board decides to move out, it will be for economic reasons. Like many schools in Kentucky and all over the US, the MISD will see a very large deficit next year and it will have to make many unpleasant cuts to stay out of the red. If the move is made, the old junior high annex could be sold.

No conspiracy, no safety issues, no bad principals, no bad politics, just a sign of the economic times.

How smart would it be to move Central office to a building that frequently floods?

Sorry, I only reported what is going to happen. You will have to ask someone higher up in the system the answer to that question.

Look at that Central Auditorium Building that sits empty all the time. It is between the High School and Middle School and cost millions to build! The school board saw fit to spend millions on a building they knew was not needed for primary class rooms or to aid in teaching in any form or fashion. Keep spending taxpayer money like there's no tomorrow and maybe the empty mall will let them put there offices in one of it's empty stores.

Steve Martin is sick!!! He keeps Gingie locked up because he is a paranoid bastard! He would run the Middlesboro School System down a rat hole cheating!!! Just like he got caught cheating at Eastend and was reprimanded! If you don't believe me check with the Standards Board. It is public record. SORRY STEVE YOU AND THE MARTINS ARE A BUNCH OF THUGS everybody knows it also.

It is easy to say "everybody knows". Topix is one of the few places one can say what they want to, even if it is heresy or an outright lie.

You make reference to "the Standards Board" and tell us to check with it. Since you made the accusation of cheating, why don't you post the information or a link where all can see the evidence?
