We must address the issues in order for them to be fixed. Everyone could start calling the West Virginia State Department requesting the help this county so desperately needs.

The Mason county school system for lack of a better word sucks!. Our students are behind academically than students in surrounding counties. If the state would step in and take over things could only get better. Write or e-mail your state school superintendent. Together maybe the concerned parents can get things changed.

I have to say,the people of Mason County are as much to blame as the School Board. Consolidation would be the answer,but that was rejected.... Subsequently leaving the kids to suffer!
yessir!

And the mummies and daddies who get all twisted when their kids fail and try to force teachers to give them grades. Putting jr high and high school in the same building was stupid. The scheduling alone is a nightmare of epic proportions.

the biggest problem with our school system is the school board and the voters of mason county must shoulder a lot of that blame. we voted them in! there are a couple who are good and i respect them, but the rest are a waste of a seat and we have done our children a huge disservice by electing them. as far as your idea to get the state to run our county schools, i have one bit of advice -- be careful what you wish for!

Yes, maybe if the state would come in and take the kids from drug addicted dead beat welfare trash that do nothing but drugs and whore around maybe our children wouldn't be behind in this "academically deprived" county!!! Sad that kids have no help or support at home! Why not ask the kids what the problems are! If the parents don't care, why should the kids? A teacher can only do so much in the classroom where he/she has every different kind of student there is from mentally impaired to ADHD to sexually and physically abused! When they have up to 28 of these kids in one room, the parents should take it upon themselves to avoid drugs and have better values starting at home before they whine it's the teacher's job to fix everyone! Most of these kids who are "academically deprived" are a product of their raisin'!! You as parents are SUPPOSED to be role models! I feel sorry for the poor teachers who do not get paid enough to baby-sit your child! Add it up.... If they got paid just $3 an hour for every child to baby-sit they should make about $16000 a month. I can certainly say I wouldn't want to be in their shoes, it is bad enough sitting inside the classroom with these major hellions!

Programs are needed to help out the children and parents. Big cities have them and so do rural communities it's time to be the village that raises a child instead of acting like a village of idiots.

i agree with you 110%!! i had two years into a teaching degree and backed out because i sure as heck couldn't do it!! i see it all the time... mom and dad don't get along cause mom cheated on dad to get pills and dad was out handin' his pills out to any girl in the hole and drama drama drama and where does this leave the kids? parents are way too dang self involved and selfish to give a dang about thier kids enough to actually pay attention to what is going on with THEM!! poor little things...

just read the posts on here... 98% are trash drama... and most of the people posting this trash are the parents of the kids in our school system. they care more about the drama in thier own lives to put it aside for a few minutes to talk to thier kids or read to them or teach them to tie thier shoes or instill in them a real sense of value and morals. sad.
