I have heard that to from a good number of sources, parents and students one 5th grade teacher is said to always be yelling at kids and writing them up and principals always siding with this and other teachers and then punishing the kids. Parents feeling helpless and by the sounds of what I have heard your right they are creating a hostile environment. They fear naming names or going to the board saying they are corrupt and useless also always siding with the school not the victim students and their parents who prove to be innocent without question and any reasonable person would see that when they see and hear all the facts. As far as the cams in bathroom its a good thing there not inside but I do think it seems unlikely anyone was having sex in public bathrms to the degree stated being its a public room and anyone could walk in I would question that if there are pervert teachers that nothing is being done about as has been said how do students and parents know they don't have some hidden cam and if the schools not willing to stand up for students and parents who know their children best I'd question just who is running the school. Who are these teachers and principals that are creating a hostile environment? I agree with other posters this is a great spot for students and parents to share their stories get a real action group formed to save these kids that want and deserve a education because every child can learn and when they don't the school is the problem. A iron fist only pushes students out not in to learn. I also hear this school and a few others are habitual about pushing ADHD drugs on parents and students mostly boys is this also true because if so it sounds more like there just to lazy to teacher and properly run their classrooms. One parent said her child,s entire class was on these drugs and they hounded her to no end all year lying on her child repeated times and basically taunting and testing the child to get the child to screw up to get her to drug the child. Its all this stuff really true because myself over the years when people take the time to write or tell such stories I have found them mostly or fully true.

Well that is seems fine I am from out west we had security cams throughout our entire school inside and out in all common areas reduced a bunch of trouble. Now a few years back they extended it to classrooms and offices. Parents can use a password and see what is going on with their kids. People kind of objected at first and there was a bit of staff turnover I guess the bad apples figured they better get out of dodge so they wouldn't get caught kids and parents loved it school rating went to the top saved tax payers money and made the schools better and kids. Got to wonder why they didn't do that here if the schools are as bad as they say and its evident that they are my town was a small town so there is not reason not to here. Can't help notice the chat name there Corrupt Stuff, so that must mean more than just your short answer to the post only on the cam issue. When you use a name like that you imply something else is corrupt can I ask what or are you afraid to say like some I notice. I also see in this blog others say some corrupt stuff is going on showing some the school staff favors over others. I do know this it does not do kids any favors to not talk about this stuff or parents to feel its useless to file complaints cause they won't do nothing, enough complaint get made they'll have no choice but address the problems. I agree parents and students should get on here voice their feelings and the events and form some sort of group to stand up for their kids and themselves.

This county needed a state takeover. Nothing wrong with the kids, nothing wrong with Collins Middle or any of the other schools that can't be fixed. We need a Board and administrators that put kids first, before money, before buildings, If the kids come first all the rest takes care of itself. Leon Ivey is a good man and has children in the system so he will try to make things better for his kids. Just don't elect a bunch of folks that are out of touch with what teachers and kids have to deal with these days. The state is going to pour money into our system eventually because of all the attention this part of the state will get with the added growth that the Boy Scouts bring. Last thing. If you don't like something don't complain about the problems, get involved and be a part of the solution. Have a Great Day Oak Hill.
Agreed I don't see nothing wrong with the kids either funny their good kids everywhere and have been around a lot of kids all kinds of circumstances and over their most good. So it makes you wonder whats going on that all the sudden they go through those school house doors and all the their being reported as brats trouble makers getting punished and suspended which from what we been reading says causes much more harm than good and it not proven to make them better or learn better or more. Then the ADHD we are confused one side says it causes real harms drug addictions and criminals other side says its good but I recall back in early 80,s parents drugging their kids with Niquil cold medicine to put their kids to sleep early eves to have their social time away from kids. Just seems to me drugs are drugs and its wrong. Then we read its most a new trend and most boys and schools all over pushing this. Do they mean tell us this is mostly a boy thing and why all the sudden are kids mostly boys suffering from this which they don't even have a medical test to test for it. sounds to me they are just trying to create failures and next generation criminals. You could drug any creature and make it submit better but that don't mean it right or there really is a medical illness at play. do think you right money is behind it and these people need to speak out and form action and watchdog groups and complain about what wrong and find ways to really fix it for good.

Hey Retard! Why don't you do some expert research and see what the experts have to say before you run that mouth. TEACHERS ARE THE SOLE CAUSE OF WHY KIDS FAIL NOT THERE PARENTS. Poorly ran classrooms school suspension do in fact cause high drop out rates, high addiction rates and high criminal rates know your facts before you run your mouth. All a person has to do is look on topix see how people write an spell and the answer is right in front of you years of school failure. then the drug and other addiction rates back that as do the crime rate and context of the crimes committed. So for all you cyber trolls and cyber bullies who get on topix talking your hate and degrading and insulting people get your damn facts before you run your moron mouths!
When I went to school parents still taught their kids manners and knew where the kids were at all times...You would never see a parent out with a kid at a place like wal mart at midnight on a school night, just go's to show ya...when parents taught the kids manners and respect at home and also knew where the kids were at all times, kids would behave. Teachers could also spank, now it is all different, parents do not teach kids manners and do not know where their kids are at all times and do not care if they are out running the roads at midnight on a school night........I do not care what RETARD says, it all starts at home...parents just do not care and expect the school to handle the kids, with no manners or respect. Lazy ass parents do your job.

Sorry pal I know lots of parents and kids they do know where their kids are at all times and I happen to shop at night a good bit never see kids at wal-mart. Past generations spanked kids yep it taught them to settle their problems with violence end result Largest Prison State in the World the US. So I agree with Retard because some of us are not as stupid as you'd like us to be we do read and ask question and stay on top of current events. If teachers don't show respect they won't get respect. You want yes sir no sir send your kid to military school....... Just because not all kids use proper manors don't make them bad kids or kids that deserve to be mistreated. Society has chosen over the years to relax the manor issue my early years every said yes mam no mam so on I was taught to still do when I get it from other you get what is given. Don't blame the new generations of parents or kids for something almost totally stopped nearly 3 or 4 generations ago. Don't use it as a poor excuse for bad teaching and ran public schools either. School systems have every chance to be updated and classes needed to teach the new age kids correctly and properly that is proven and works. Get your heads out of the sand and out of the dark ages the old failed kids its a hard core fact and when schools fail its is the teachers fault and those running the schools fault every kid can learn and they don't need drugs to do it. Got back to bashing an haten on the Oak Hill FG which seems to be what you do best because you have no idea of what your talking about. Kids Fail because of poor teachers and poorly ran schools its called to lazy to get off their duffs and do what it takes to create and keep a interesting and learning environment that makes kids want to learn that think a iron fist is gonna get them progress its not its teaches fear, hate and resentment and is the difference between good and bad teachers. This is not the USSR its America its 2012 not 1960 there is years of science and tons of federal money that its clear when schools fail they are misusing that fed money. The proof is in the pudding which is the kids and worse is they passed all grades but can't read an write or do basic real math which proves lazy corrupt schools who didn't want to teach. Topix is the perfect Example of It from past generations so go back to the OHFD Thread and your moaning cause kids want to learn and make their schools better!!!!!!!!!!

Kids are not slaves society moved away long ago from the sir/mam because its content did not show respect it showed me master you slave not equal citizenship, well guess what pal this is American and all citizens are equals no matter their race, religion, gender or income or status and the manor issue resulted in nothing but status abuse and it was rightfully dropped in the early 70,s/ Show kids or anyone respect and kindness and even the worst will return the same may take them a little longer to get that respect but that is due to TRUST!!! something Many in society lack because leadership lacks Trust the so called role models of society and justly so because they well earned that lack of Trust in fact is spread like a cancer and is the main cause our nation is failing the way it is without trust you have nothing including respect so again go wastes other peoples time with nonsense you know nothing about some of us want better schools for our kids and our kids to be better citizens as kids and adults!!!!

Seems like to many just don't talk enough if people don't spread the word and start talking and form groups your children's lives are at stake here. Expose these jerks this is a great place for it and reg some names so you can contack each other and form action groups they do get things done make joint complaint file class action suits get these loosers that run these schools out along with their bad teachers they keep hiding, lying for and protecting expose their names just don't lie tell what you know even if it is minor. Even minor things add up by years end and it means your kids get a bad school record that follows them the rest of their lives, not like a jevi criminal record that gets wiped away at 18 school records follow for their whole lives. Do Something Show THEM You Do Care About Your Children and Communities otherwise it will never change and only create more crime more tax money wasted.

I hear one teacher is really bad always yelling at kids slamming doors writing kids up for no reason just making up stuff to get them in trouble and the school keeps siding with her not the kids or parents. A few parents have been talking about it. I didn't catch the teachers name but I hope the parents are fed up enough to do something about it. They say she gives the kids just a few mins to do their written work then writes them up for not doing it. Sounds like a real witch if you ask me wish I'd have heard what her name was I'd report her. I wasn't party to their conversation just overheard them all talking but it did play on my mind all that day. No wonder so many kids are drugged and fail in school or get out and still can't properly read and write. What a waste of tax payer money. Parents need to start standing up for their kids and reporting the jerks.

Folks are just so fed up the feel helpless which is what the jerks want while the destroy your kids lives parents need to stand up so does the communities because its you that have to deal with the fallout later as the kids grow. Just look at all the other threads an read them that is the fallout of past generations of a lame school system. They are not teaching nothing there except trouble.

Do some research. Fayette County schools are ranked 53rd out of 55 counties in WV. And WV is consistently measured as having the worst school system in the United States. Even worse than Puerto Rico's. So you can see that our kids are being "taught" in the absolutely worst schools in the entire country. That's something to think about. I know I pay way too damn much in taxes for my kids to have such piss poor educations here. Maybe if I didn't have to pay so much in taxes I could put them in private school. Or I could get on welfare & stay home & homeschool them. Something has to change here.

Amen to that been checking a few things myself and your are correct but as long as not just parents but the citizens as well don't stand up get rid of the corrupt BS and demand transparent accountable gov all around the state and most certain within your own County. Just look around no jobs, no education so why even bother to go other places to find jobs. End result povery oppression addiction, crime, welfare and people at each others throats playing the blame game towards the victims of oppression and forced poverty. Those victims didn't bring the drugs here they don't make and sell the booze and pills their just the beaten down oppressed uneducated fools that fell for the trap and a big part of that trap starts with ADHD Drugs and other Prescription drugs that spread like a out of control cancer and without the education they needed and the ill treatment of school systems they will fall in that trap. Then the few can depopulate the area control the population to their desires making fist fulls of money off the negatives that befall others get and keep the best and highest paying jobs for their few buddies as someone said in a few of these and other threads is all selective they play the favor game. Every citizen should Stand up for better schools. Which your not going to have with poor School and county leadership or poor teachers or little money being invested in the schools and money is tight so the most needed things need to come first.

they call it dummying down stripping people of their rights election fraud and vote fixing and not just in our State this is going on everywhere just the more poverty States and a faster rate. Pitting citizen against citizens tearing down their drive to excel and making them fight against each other taking the focus off the root causes and real problems and mostly off those who create the mess. Just look at the Topix forums in each area of the state, then look at the crime rates, school systems population and income levels sure more populated automatically means more crime but look at what type of crime and root causes. They cast Stumbling blocks out program from childhood up to be groomed and prone for addictions and without good educations the truth is most are going to fall for those traps and stumbling blocks. Parents can't afford to be home so no one is watching the hin house anymore. So the kids are attacked in school an at home because the good parents are busy working trying to make ends meet and the addicts and criminals and corrupt jerks are home in the neighborhoods to influence the children with their poisons. As the Person said don't take our word for it study it all for yourselves, research the facts ask questions seek real answers not just from topix, weight the facts and seek the real truths These kids fall in these traps they loose their rights they can't vote they can't defend their country or themselves. Before long there are counties with few voters and no rights and the few rule everyone and there will not be justice it will be Just-US. they lay these traps to gain many things but the biggest is to turn people against people addictions are the best way with added poverty. Once addicted to the powerful drugs they will sell their souls or steal souls to feed that addiction. Good citizens become angry and do not seeing the root cause the suppliers of these poisons. They then demand action but in truth they are making war on each other neighbor against neighbor. The Evil people behind this don't want what our forefathers wanted and did to make happen which is to stick together and stand up for better jobs, better wages, better benefits and to be left alone to live in peace without gov or company invasions into their lives. like the person said do your home work its not just the children who are effected poor by bad schools its everyone and yep their right if they paid less taxes they just might be able to afford private schools not so sure home school is a answer but in some cases yes it is.

my child went there for 4 years and i learned that it basically depends on "status" and popularity as to how u and your child will be treated by SOME teachers and the principal. there are some teachers there who are genuine and do the best they can but they can only do so much. That school needs revamped from the top down. i think all schools should implement a "no tolerance policy" for bullying. the sad truth is that favoritism and bullying is in all schools, some are just worse than others.

I agree with that! I've had 2 kids go to Collins. Favoritism is very big in that school. It shouldn't be that way. All kids should be treated equal.

I am so relieved that in less than 4 months my child will be out of this school. Listen people if you have a chance to send your child elsewhere do it for your child's sake. These people on here are not lying about anything they are saying. I have worse stories to tell but don't won't go there. The school has always been a mess since I went in the 90s, but Harris done brought that school to an all time low. I'm sorry but as long as he is part of the administration at that school it will never get better and only go further down hill because he does NOT care!
