I've heard they are turning it into a kindergarten center for the county. I'm not real happy about having my kid bussed all the way to the ghetto for kindergarten. Has anyone else heard this?

The county should have some input on this.

Mayfield is in the ghetto? Where do you live; Gibson Bay? It's about 1/2 mile away you pretentious 'ho! Get over yourself and your "princess".

Yeah, I'm a total snob because I don't want my 2 future kindergarteners bussed all the way across the county to the richmond ghetto school. I pay way too much in property tax to have my kid bussed into the ghetto.

All this personal sniping is interesting, but does anybody know if there is any truth to this rumor?

I haven't heard anything about it before, so I doubt that it is true.

Ghetto? Pfft. Richmond doesn't have a ghetto. Less savory parts of town, but ghetto? Please. About the closest Richmond gets to that is Turpin.

You're still a pretentious 'ho, but on top of that, I see you're also a snob. Guess you're proud of that. I can see you now with that little turned up nose, swinging your blond? hair around thinking you're all that. You don't work, either, do 'ya?

This aggravated me! I hear people calling mayfield the ghetto school all the time. It's far from ghetto. Kids from all over the county, depending on which area you live go to that school. What makes you think it's ghetto anyway? Mayfield is actually a great school. I am a successful mother of two, I completed 5 years in college, I am a PA at UK medical center. Several of my friends have the same type of life. Although, our careers are different. We graduated from high school in 2010, so around the late 90s, early 2000s we were in elementary school. Ill let you in on an interesting fact. We went to that "ghetto school".

I must be missing something. You say you graduated High school in 2010, this is 2013 and you claim to be a PA. That is not possible.

Actually it's very possible. I completed 2 years of SRNA training in high school. Also, did the dual credit program. Which means 1 class a day junior and senior year, I went to EKU for a college class. Then, instead if taking the summer off from college, I stayed in school.

My kids went to Mayfield one year and i will.say they have the nicest staff!!! Very caring and loving and they actually care about the children. A lot of the other school have snobby staff.

There is absolutely nothing ghetto about Gibson Ln. It has no more "ghetto" kids than any other school in town. The school is a little aged but not ghetto whatsoever. Wow people are so shallow.

That would be the smartest thing they could do. Mayfield kids could be spread throughout the city schools and turn Mayfield into a kindergarten center. Rename the school to lose the stigma it has now.

Again, I am confused. You cannot be a PA in that amount of time. You must have a four year degree to be admitted to a PA tract of study. The SRNA training you had in high school is wonderful but that qualified you to work as a nursing assistant not a nurse, not a PA but a tech. Your story does not add up. Perhaps by using the term PA you mean something other than a Physician assistant.

Home school them. Problem solved. Property tax or not, it's not the county's duty to babysit your 2 future kindergarteners, if you don't like the education system or school selections don't use it. Educate your kids yourself and let's see how well that works out for you.

Besides, do you think you are the only tax payer? I know a lot of people, myself included, who have no children and we still pay our property taxes the same as you and we don't gripe and complain. Get over yourself.

By PA I mean physicians assistant. I went to college for 3 full years. The 3 summers equal out to 1 and a half years of college. That gave me 4 1/2 years of college! I do have a four year degree on top of my dual credit college classes. I'm currently continuing my education because I plan to go on to law school.

This person that says they are a PA cannot even get the time table right because maybe they don't know that a PA is a masters program on top of a 4 year degree. I have no idea why people would get on here and lie about what they do for a living but it appears here that we have a fibber

This is an example of the sad makeup of topix. On one hand it allows this person to feel better about themselves even if it is built upon a lie and on the other hand it shows the pitiful state of folks.

Another clue, no PA I have ever known would be so disrespectful and speak in the manner this person does. Plus what they have said is not possible.

The thread was not even about this anyway but it is insightful about the people that respond.

Sad.

I suggest you try a city with an actual 'ghetto.' Like Detroit. Or LA.
