I personally think mr flowers is a jackass!! Yes I used the term jackass because that is what he called his student last week! Last time I checked you don't say stuff like that to your students!
Students may be called worse in college. Jackass simply sounds harsh. The definition means stupid or foolish person. If he called this student stupid would you still be on topix complaining? The other definition of course is a male donkey, but I believer Mr. Flowers was going for stupid or foolish. It just sounds so dramatic when we say "you jackass".
I had Mr. Flowers quite some time ago. I graduated in 1991. He was tough, but he inspired me to try harder in math. I for some crazy reason decided to take finite math and trigonometry together my senior year. I never felt like I needed to study for math or complete my homework assignments on a regular basis for some reason and it prevented me from reaching my potential. Needless to say, I studied in Mr. Flower's classes and did well. I went on to get my Bachelor's degree from SIUE in Accounting and graduated with honors. I later earned my MBA. Anheuser Busch hired me as an accountant right out of college. My spring board to success was indeed Mr. Flowers. I've always wanted to go back and thank him. I didn't know how he would perceive it, so I never did. He is a very good teacher, so please don't say that he isn't.

No different than the cover up of the kids on the football and volleyball teams that got drinking tickets during the season this year.

It is against the law to publish a minor/juvenile offender of the age 17 and if it is just a misdemeanor the age is under 18. So their names would have not been in the newspaper. Also, if they had court appearances it would of been closed court, no one from the public allowed in courtroom.

Well then how is the school or coaches responsible for this then? If the kids parents don't do the right thing and turn their son or daughter in. The school can't just go out and accuse every athlete of drinking it would put them in a liable situation. I guess the people you should be upset with are the parents who don't teach their children right from wrong!! Correct?

If an athlete got a drinking ticket during the season, it should be the kid and the parents responsibility to report it to the administration and their coaches. If the coaches and administration are told about it and do nothing, then the school board should be contacted. It's hard to understand how some parents can raise their children to be so deceptive. These types of things will eventually come back to haunt you. Maybe not in this school year, but in your college years and there after.

attendence

if anybody is interested they need to go to www.redbud132.org and check the attendence of some of the present members. if you run for school board and get elected then you should do what is asked of you and show up for all the meetings and not leave during executive session. some very important issues are discussed and for what ever reason they dont show up are they leave early. example 4/26 2011 concession stand when they discussed that there was some members not present i ask why do they not want to be involved in all the issues are just the ones that make them look good. i will post some dates so it is easier for people who do care about the students and the future of are school.8/09 2011,11/15 2011,6/16 2011,6/30 2011,5/3 2011,4/26 2011,4/21 2011,3/31 2011,11/9 2010. dates members left during executive session 9/17 2009,8/10 2010,8/25 2011 this is just some of the dates so check them out and see who the no shows are and who leaves early. one other date that i want to share is 4/19 2012 not for attendence but what they discussed BOARD MEMBER CONDUCT POLICY are our members not adults who should be professional and not act like i dont know maybe little babies.

let me ask you a question if there was a student that grabbed a girls hand and put it on his privates and it possible got caught on camera why would you not expel that student for the rest of the school year not just a week? obviously ther was something on the camera that got the boy expelled. then when he returned to school, still be in the same classes as the girl he did it to. i think that the girl is probably very uncomfortable sitting in the same class room as that boy. i know kids are young and make mistakes but if they dont get the right discipline from the ADULTS what kind of message is that sending to the boy. just like the athletes that got busted drink the school board did NOTHING!
