Why are so many of you all using this as a thread to bash either MCHS or Model? The topic is about keeping Model open. Model holds their own academically and is an excellent resource for teachers in training at EKU. If Model the county will have to absorb an additional 50ish students per grade level. Does anyone think that is a good idea?
If Model "closes", it will not go anywhere, as I think it's students, and school would be unified together. I think you guys would still go right where you want to. The County would take the school building also is the point I am getting to. So nothing will really change.

I do think joining the schools would be a great idea. There has got to be less to pick at about a school if it's in the same bunch of schools you are in.

And yes, I think it is time to get over the who is better than who bullshit.

Maybe so but this is the feeling. Is it really worth going there to deal with this the rest of your life? I believe this is very widespread here. Whether you are dealing with the telephone man, the mechanic, the nurse or the doctor. Most of them share these feelings. In my opinion it is not worth it.
If most of the people in this county feel like you describe then how did three of our local Judges get elected? They are Model Grads and if I am not mistake anyone can vote?

Very goog question and point. Judge Neal spent 75% of his educational career in the county schools, he has a dear mother that is a sweet country gal with many local roots. Judge Jennings was somewhat of the Model exception in that he was a good guy, great parents that were simply top notch folks. I have no answer for any others. Also, as I am sure you know voter turnout in this county is very low. Surely you see by the many replies on here that negative feelings run deep.

Allow me to attempt to offer an answer. As a MCHS graduate I wonder if Model was hated any more or less than Madison High? See I think the point you people are missing is the people in the area, which the vast majority of went to MCHS are responding to childish school kids feelings of we support our school.
Why would anyone car about anyone from a different school 40 years after the last class let out?
Look at our city, the mess it is in, with our poor police protection. Corrupt officials. Good Ole Boy small town bullshit. Alcohol and dope on every corner.
What you fail to see, is we are all Madison County people. Basically white trash just trying to get by.

Think about this. Papa Smurf, is the leader of all the Smurf's. But what is that? He's still a blue nothing.
But he is like everyone in the area. Just trying to get by with a fool in the White House doing all he can to subvert the country.

So will Model close. Who cares! If it does, then it does. If somehow EKU finds building buildings and other useless junk with crooks and squandering the funds is better than educating the children then what can we the people do?

Think about this. That ugly assed overpass on Lancaster would have funded the school for years. But the EKU students were to stupid to obey the law and would not stay out of the road. But to use that overpass do you think they will just continue to walk across the street, or will they climb those stairs up and across and down. I would not bother with all that if I wanted to cross the road, I would just cross.
I wonder if the students will climb and descend. I mean the refused to walk the 50 feet to the light to cross so why would they climb the bridge?

If Model is closed, then EKU needs to be right behind it. Because if they cannot understand the reason they are there is to teach, then they should be closed as well.

Last year's graduates from Model recieved over $2million in scholarship monies. ACT prep begins in the summer between 7th and 8th grade. I realize many are more focused on athletics than academics but my children will always have an education behind them first! Elite never once played into our decision.

If I may.... The poster is boasting about the known fact that each year, Model students hold the record for teen pregnancies. But this is not anything new. Since I was a student many years ago, it has long been known that the girls you date at Central are hard working upstanding young members of today's society. You know, marrying type women.

If you want a quick piece of tail just got over to Model. Sure the girls there are not as attractive as the county girls, and they are sure not in as good of shape. Lots of fattiness at Model too. But they are not looking for a wife or girlfriend when they go there. They drop the load and get back to class.

Now if you still have issues understanding this, then ask one of your Model teachers to explain it because I cannot dumb this down any farther.

Id like to see stats on the pregnancy rates at the two schools. I can't seem to find any online. Until I see or find proof. I will just assume it is more nonsense being spouted by jealous MCHS alums.

Not sure where you get your info from but there is no comparison to the number of pregnancies between the school. Model doesn't have any and I know the others do. There was an 8th grader at a middle school that was pregnant. Students at central even have sex at school. It's a know fact. I think I would try to find something else to spread false info about.

Whatever. Everyone in the community knows the truth. Find something else to try to lie about.

Everyone has failed to discuss the main purpose for Model. It is used as a great on-site tool for EKU students to expand their education. They observe, instruct, and do research within Model. There are also graduate students that coach sports which helps toward an internship.
I did not grow up in Madison County but did learn very quickly when asked where my children attend school, giving the answer of Model was and is never an easy thing. My family is not wealthy nor connected. Our priority is education! We feel given the choices within our district that Model is the best one. The children have always tested
well and we can see results.
Given other "private" schools in Kentucky, the tuition at Model is modest. We appreciate the low cost but would understand an increase as everything in society is getting more expensive.
With regards to budget cuts, my feelings are strong in that there are positions within Model that need to be terminated! The administrative staff is over staffed and with the student workers that must work on campus for their financial assistance or volunteer hours, they slack can be successfully handled. I disagree with how staff and parents have handled this situation with students, verbally telling them to sign a petition to "save Model from closing". It is not a child's job to save jobs or their school!
Model has their share of issues and it is sad when particular students can violate school policy without consequences because of who their parents are. I believe this is found everywhere, even with adults in the workplace. As one post said, "entitlement".
Closing Model will not happen. The benefits out-weigh the cost. EKU is trimming the budget overall in all departments to make it cleaner for the new incoming President.
Then why are EKU students overflowing the county schools to observe? There are nearly 80 at Madison Central just this semester alone.

<quoted text>First of all the county doesn't "give" them anything. A portion of the money comes from the state and the parents pay the rest. The school is a part of the college of education and they send all of there potential teachers over there to observe. The county could not take all of them, then EKU would be in a had position. Stop being jealous and get your facts straight.
NO THEY DON'T!! They send them to county schools! There are over 80 at Madison Central this semester!

As usual you don't know the whole story. Yes there are a few that goes to the county. They can't take more. Model has over 10,000 hours of observers. Get your facts straight yet again.

I attended and graduated from Model. My daughter attended Model until her Junior year, when she became pregnant. So please, don't tell me what the heck I am speaking about.

Maybe a parenting issue. Don't think there is a comparison in the numbers. The school has nothing to do with. Everything starts at home. Sorry!!!
