Having grown up there, and graduated from there, I feel that it's a combination of mostly what everyone else has mentioned. Anyone graduating from that high school is so far behind, and so unprepared for college that its ridiculous. Try sitting in a college math class and the instructor saying this is something that you should have went over in middle school, and you being the only person that has never even seen or heard of what their talking about.

From McCreary, get real you are the problem.If you wanted a education you could have got. Maybe you had lack of interest, & realizing this would be easy for you to place blame. Get some study skills, motivation & books your well on your way to education. If you need help I am sure it can be found.

If you can read, you should thank a teacher. You have to be pretty well educated to appear to be so ignorant. You know who you are.

It seems to be the in thing to cast stones.

May the force be with you, Grasshopper.

...But dude, I'm out there because I'm hooked on phonix. I got on it at a very young age and couldn't stop. The teachers tried to hide it from me but the urge was way too strong to resist.

To Get Real: Not that it's any of your business, but I was an A, B student all throughout middle school, and high school, and college. So I did not have a 'lack of interest', or 'motivation', nor did I lack 'study skills'. In my previous post what I was referring to is, the fact that McCreary Central High School did not, and from what I hear still does not prepare a student for college. When you enter college, and you are already several grades behind, when you were an A, B student throughout school, there's something wrong with that scenario.

I think it is a fact that a college degree can be attained by just showing up for class, and pay x amount of money for x amount of years, and never gain an ounce more of knowledge. What is also sad is most of the people who attained the degree didn't have to pay for the college because the tax payers did it for them. The wealthy can afford it for their kids and the poor don't have to worry about it. The middle family with kids is screwed due to not being wealthy enough and they can't qualify for "GRANTS" like the lower income bracket. So the middle family has to try to pay for their kids college plus help pay for the lower incomes kids. Then again, I wouldn't trade places with them. I'd rather get it or do it on my own....And if I didn't do it on my own, I would atleast act a lot more humble about it be thankful for the ones who made the "GRANTS" possible.

Going by median household income, right now we are the 23rd poorest county in the United States, with 10 other Ky counties ranking poorer than we are. Going by per capita income, we are 21st poorest, with Clay County being the only county in Ky poorer than we are. Yay Ky!

Broke it looks like you're the idiot now doesn't it. I do my research but was somewhat older than Vote Yes appears to be. But I was right. I do have a freakin' clue. People like you just want tp whine and act like a jackass. There are others ways to get things done than acting like an idiot...lol

This poll by no means is a scientific poll, but often wonder if the board members look at the results and think change might be needed.

Well yes could you be a little jealous. Just ask lady Pine Knot & I believe she would be glad to tell you nosey if you must know why she was there. She wasn't hiding, glad you saw her. No, Johnny nor any board has not been in trouble with OEA, just questioned becaused nosey people like you writing & reporting false information. I am so glad you have the time to be a watch dog.Do you know a board members duty? If you don't I suggest you educate your self & maybe you might could understand why a board member would visit the Central Office. Give lady Pine Knot a call.

I feel any person of intellect will know this poll is a waste of time. It is absolute obvious based on student test scores where the needed improvement of work lies. It all starts in the class where the teacher should hold themself accountable for the students sake without being asked. The administrators should walk the halls monitoring with a backbone making sure people are earning their money for the learning of our children. Parents are doing more teaching than the schools I feel. This isn't all teachers, but a good number of them are guilty of laziness I think. Bottom line, it all starts in the classroom with the teachers.

I had to ask a question about my child at the central office. I was bounced from person to person because they don't know the answers. Then the one that should be able to answer me is never there. Do they work.

I think after watching the Board of Education meeting on Youtube it is time to switch phone and internet service from Highland to Access.
