The state is taking over the school. We should jus go ahead and see if Wayne County will consolidate before we become a thing of the past. We have trusted our kids and tax money with people who know nothing about running a school. We dear people, are in trouble.

Don't be ridiculous. It's quite obvious to anyone with half a brain that with state funding we can afford teacher that can teach our children relevant subjects. Because going by what I see on here, there is a sever lack of education in this area.

I agree. People such as yourself would learn to add the "S" to your plurals. I can barely handle this type of illiteracy.

There are going to be severe layoffs. Write it down or talk to teachers here. You people have no idea how serious this is.

That school system should have been absorbed decades ago. It's been nothing but a money pit. Yes, people will lose their jobs, but hopefully many of the good ones will be picked up as the other school system expands to accept more students.

Monticello Independent School has always had a bloated ego. Started by those townspeople who seemed to think their children were superior to the country students in the Wayne County school system. It takes a lot of money to run a school. The old town money is gone and the independence of the school will follow suit. Maybe the state will bail them out temporarily. A consolidated school system is clearly the only way. Get over it and accept the inevitable.

That will be up to the state. Yet all children have to go to school somewhere. They say it will be a convenient opportunity to get the elderly teachers off the state insurance tab. Young and healthy are the teachers who would be considered for any new positions at Wayne County. Who knows, it may be possible to integrate those students with the help of a few cheap subs instead of hiring new staff. Much more cost efficient.

do you not remember just a few years ago that WCHS was taken over by the state? same type of thing I believe. But on the other hand I agree it is time to consider consolidation of the systems.
A coincidence that the superintendent announced retirement right at the time of the audit! Seems that he should have have known what was going on as he was the leader and failed to put systems in place to stop all those situations from happening. He should carry part if not all of the blame for this fiasco.

I do believe you are correct. I may be wrong, but I think WC was "state-managed" which is very different than being "state-assisted". At this point Monticello is being assisted which is a result of their request for help. This is not to say that they won't end up being managed. Only time will tell.

Should shut it down, it fails by every measure used. Will save money and most important the children will be better off. That school stinks and you can tell the difference between most Wayne County and Monticello grads. Exceptions to the rule are true but if you took ten kids at random from Monticello and paired them against ten random kids at Wayne in the same grade levels it is not even close which group is getting the better education

You can use the link below to compare school districts based on the latest and newest test. Both local districts fall into the "Needs Improvement" category. There is 2.9 points separating their scores. Wayne County has an overall score of 52.7, while Monticello has an overall score of 49.8. The rankings among the 174 districts seem more extreme until you look at the complete list. While WC is ranked 116 and MIS is ranked 142, only 16 actual increments separate them because some rankings are shared by several schools. For instance, WC and Henry Co. share the 116 ranking.

I would have to disagree with WTF. I think if you RANDOMLY and FAIRLY compared students, the difference would be slight. As for grads, I would certainly hope that Wayne County had more successes by raw numbers, given their much larger class size. If you truly want to compare, a study of percentages would be needed.

You can't do any worst than last and Monticello Independent has been last (by average) the last five years. I don't think an illiterate pillbilly from Albany can do any worse than last...

A lot of that has to do with the size of the school. I do think a lot of the schools are WORSE, A few bad scores pull the Monticello School ratings down a lot more than other schools.. I know a lot of Monticello graduates that are way more successful than Wayne Counties.

The high school you went to has little bearing on being successful or not. That comes from higher learning, dedication and hard work. Reading, writing and grammar could be better at both schools. Counties is plural, not possessive. See what I mean Vern? Your use of the wrong form of the word makes your post fall a few points. Then we have punctuation problems, as in using a comma to seperate two sentences. It all adds up at the end of a composition.

I wrote this in order to explain the fact that no matter which school you went to, if you don't apply what you have learned it is futile and pointless to blame the school instead of your own efforts to do better.

It is a real word and used in the correct context in the sentence:

Defined by dictionary.com (powered by merriam webster)
Worst (adjective )

1. bad or ill in the highest, greatest, or most extreme degree: the worst person.

2. most faulty, unsatisfactory, or objectionable: the worst paper submitted.

3. most unfavorable or injurious.

4. in the poorest condition: the worst house on the block.

5. most unpleasant, unattractive, or disagreeable: the worst personality I've ever known.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/worst

Used in a sentence

Monticello Independent is the worst school in the state and the teachers turn out kids who wet the bet, wear helmets, and eat paste well beyond the age of 16.

Close the school and expand your vocabulary Monticello Grad.
