I find it very interesting that Robertson County has lots to say about the new director search of Robertson County Schools, but no one comments on the fact that Robertson County Schools are under federal investigation for operating its system in a segregative manner.

It's not the " system" that are the segregationist it's the citizens. There was a petition signed against school bussing about a year ago. A big time church guy from greenbrier got it started. I urge all four upstanding citizens of the county to write the US justice department

Not everybody black in Springfield support that life style. I know I don't. You have every right to take your kids somewhere else to school. If I had kids they would go to east. They embarrass me on south main and to those on south main I'm an Uncle Tom so you have to over look the name calling

So most of the black people live inside the Springfield city limits? That means the majority of black children attend city schools. By choice obviously, since the parents choose to live in that area. Those schools have lower grades and graduation rates. Therefore all the people that live in the county and have smarter children, are racists? Only a black person would conclude that their children's performance in school is some white person's racist agenda. Paranoid much? Member of the "It's always someone else fault" club?

My child had a few bad grades in math. Did I blame the school? No. I helped him study and understand the material. Do the black parents do the same? Maybe if those children didn't grow up thinking the thug life was more important than school, they would have better grades.

Should we as taxpayers have to pay to bus these underperforming parents children to county schools and desegregate them with smarter kids? Is that really going to change anything? My oldest child changed from a school that was 100% white to one that was 70% black. He was picked on, bullied, and physically attacked for being white. That will not happen with my youngest. I will choose private or home school. What a waste of taxpayer money. Even black people dont want their kids going to school with other black kids. I think it is reverse discrimination to blame that on white people.
