Excuse me "charlie" But maybe you should have specified that. Since this entire converstion is about Charlie Brown the principal i just assumed it was him. If you dont want someone talking to you, then maybe you shouldnt put your name on here. Apparently you are wanting some sort of response if you put your name on here. Your right, I dont know you but im sure neither of these other people on here do either. So again, if you dont want people talking to you...dont put your name on here for people to address you as "Charlie".

I didn't see any problem with sending root beer to drink for lunch and as for capri pants, my kid is wearing them now if its warm enough but thats my choice and it will continue to be mine. As far as pushing the broom..well however you all feel thats your business but my child will not be doing it. She has never gotten into any trouble at school, so if she ever does or did and they felt she needed to push a broom for punishment then Mr. Brown would need to call me and I would come up there and we could discuss what happened and he could show me how to push the broom lol.

Well Charlie obviously you are the one that assumes too much considering you thought I was talking to you, when I actually thought I was talking to the principal.

i guess it is safe to say that charlie won't be at the school board meeting. and before you start, that is not an insult to you charlie. however, i believe someone needs to get the ball rolling and see who would like to go.

I have a young granddaughter that will be in kindergarden in a few years, and if I hear of her getting in trouble for what she wears or pushing a moldy broom head down the halls, it won't be a moldy broom head that I push down the hall. Get my drift that is cruel and very unnessary. Don't think think he will get away with it. Both of my children started and ended at Clearwater. I never let that happen to them and I won't let it happen to my grandchildren. No one better tell them that there is no santa or toothfairy unless they want me up there setting them straight, promise them that too.

Well the only way things are going to change with him is for parents to go to the school board and complain. Not that they will listen, they didn't listen before and gave him another two year contract despite how he has treated students and teachers a like. Just remember this school board (except Robert Gayle) is not concerned about our children or they would not have hired someone for this school year that does not have their certification (license) to teach.

You won't get anywhere by contacting Mr. Keel. All they say they will do is investigate it, and then they say they couldn't find any fault of the teacher/prinipal or authority figure.... for you concerns contact Jefferson City Board of Education, or even call the child abuse hotline and report the school and the principal.... they will investigate it.... belive me, I know someone who called them, and he even called Washington D.C. and the FBI.... they will check into it. If you and everyone complins enough

Blah, Blah, Blah I hear that Charlie Brown shoots all of the kids in the foot with a .22 if they don't eat their green beans. First, do you all believe all or everything you hear? Sheesh. And while I am certian that it's not your children, do you have any idea of the crap kids pull these days? No respect for anyone and if they don't get taught respect at school, they are not going to get it at home. Heck nothing is their fault and " My little Johnny wouldn't do that" The biggest problem in Piedmont and the world as a whole is the lack of parental disipline and responsibility which has to start at home. Pushing a broom isn't going to hurt a kid who is doing it because of being in trouble in the first place, unless they pinch their X-Box finger and can't play after school until bed time. And in regard to the dress code, I understand that a parent who dresses their child and knows what's proper would have a problem with dress rules, but do you have any idea how many parents let the kids dress themselves when they are 6-7 or send the kids in clothes not warm enough for them? I hate the seatbelt law and don't think I should have to wear one but it's the law. Think bigger than your little circle you are living in and be thankful someone, even if you don't like their way, is trying to help your children grow up to be responsible human beings. And NO and I am not friggin' Charlie Brown, just someone with half of my wits about me.

Clearwater isn't the only school nearby that is hiring teachers without certification. It's legal to do this if the teacher will begin immediately taking classes to get the proper certification, but some have been teaching without certificates for several years! And they're bypassing applicants who do have certification in order to hire teachers who do not. And they're putting them into pivotal positions. Figure that one out. Nobody seems to care; that's the incredible part. Nobody seems to care about the exorbitant salaries the administrators get while the teachers get barely anything but the shaft. Oh well, life isn't fair.

UpChuck You said it. I fully agree. If parents had to sit in the back of the room without their child knowing they were there they could see the heck some of these kids put teachers through. I am not saying ALL kids are this way but a lot of them are. Parents need to be a lot more considerate on how they talk about a school's rules until they are there and see how many break them just because they were not taught to follow rules at home. When I was a kid I got my butt beat for disrespect and not following the rules. The teachers have these students 8 hours a day. This is pretty much more than a parent spends with their children at home because of their busy lives. Kids now a days are raising their selves. This patter needs to stop and the parents need to start taking the parenting roll back. and NO I am not a teacher.

my kids got their bottoms beat when they got in trouble too. and i think parents need to take back the parenting roll, which is what the concerned parents on here are talking about.

First, I take a very active role in my children's lives...I'm a stay at home mom. My only job is raising my girls. So I know my children aren't angels, but I also know they are respectful to their elders and are generally well-behaved. The only trouble they have ever been in is for talking to their friends occaisionally in class, for which they were reprimanded st school AND at home. I don't tolerate breaking the rules or any disrespect. My complaints about pushing the board aren't because I think they shouldn't be punished. They're because I think the punishment should be constructive and something that teaches them a lesson other than humiliation. I have no problem with having to write sentences, doing reports, or time-out. Pushing the board serves no purpose other than embarassing them in front of their peers.
