Maybe because this place has no gainful employment and families are moving on to greener pastures- bigger cities.

So they can keep up with the Jone's and look like big shots. It's not about education , but an image thing. Funny thing is that folks who send their kids to private school got their education in a public school, so they must have done all right. I have a problem with teachers teaching in public school , but send their kids to private school

If every school in this system was like the Ripley Elementary School, then our schools would be top notch all the way.

Speaking of school. Would all teachers and staff at Ripley Primary School please use your own driveways instead of cutting through Middle Grade car rider line. You are holding up traffic. Have been told its probably because you are late and are sneaking in the back door. Please stop

It doesn't have to do with keeping up eith the Jones. My child attends private school because he gets a better education and he doesn't have to put up with bullies and gangsters.

Can't fault you there. I am an adult survivor of school bullying in Ripley schools back in the 80s so when my son started getting bullied, I wouldn't have it. I yanked him out of that school so fast their heads spun because I personally know how it feels. My son was much happier in his new school and his grades skyrocketed. If there was anyway I could have escaped RJHS back in the 80s (and yes, I said "escape"), I wouldve been so gone they wouldn't have known where to look!

I'm sure rich little snobby kids don't bully. They just make you feel inferior and blackball you from their little clubs. Nothing meaner than a bitchy girl that thinks she is all that. They also have better access to the good drugs , either illegal or from mommy's medicine cabinet. Dream on in your little fantacy world

Where are they going to run to in life if a boss gives them a hard time or GOD forbid they have to work with a black person. Guess they can run home to mommy

Most schools these days are struggling with the federal and state mandates that take away their ability to teach. They HAVE to do this CORE, they have to do the RACE TO THE TOP; they have to group all kinds of kids together which pulls down the bright kids-confuses the dull kids- and makes it hard for the disruptive kids who need someone special and smaller room size...and good skills to determine if a spanking or redirection is needed at that particular time.

Teachers are pushed to the ultimate limit. there are some great ones out there. There are some who should never be around a child. Sports is glorified and funded. Music and art is sorely forgotten. Basic math and English??? what is that any more?
Where are the multiple foreign languages that will help our children compete in the world market?
WHERE ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS THE CHILDREN NEED TO SEE WHEN THEY WALK IN THE DOORS? Why are there not prayers before school starts before the Pledge to the Flag; grace before meals and tests.

Look and any statistic. Our children began failing when God was told to leave. Color has nothing to do with it.

also get ALL illegals out of our country. If they want to be citizens, then let them return legally and welcome.
GET THE GOVERNMENTS out of our schools.
Oh and have real food grown on the school property, prepared by school staff--let the children assist-great training.- and let them eat food fresh and wholesome and prepared there.

The private school that my child goes to does not tolerate bullying. The kids are on the honor system so you don't have to worry about someone stealing your kids things. The most important thing is they are a religious school. They have prayer every morning and before lunch. These are some of the reasons my child goes to private school. The public school system has taken religion away and a lot of the kids are not taught respect at home. This causes problems at school. I want my child to get a good education, learn about Christianity, and I want him to be safe!

There are a lot of teachers leaving Lauderdale County at the end of this school year. They have more paper work to do now and don't have time to teach the students anymore. There are some that are not going to teach anymore because of all the new ways they are making them teach. I feel sorry for the students. If they don't change something then Lauderdale county will never be able to keep any good teachers or any not so good either. Either way the students are losing out on a good education.

Teachers don't have time to teach anymore. They are to busy raising the students. And everyone knows what I am talking about!!!!

It kills me how everyone wants to honor the constitution to the letter on gun rights , but dont want to honor the government establishing a religeon one. What denomination or religeon would lead the prayer ? If everyone is so concerned with Christianity then why do we have a drug problem, a 50% divorce rate. What you are basically saying is you are just a little better than everyone else. The BIBLE says to live in the world but not be of the world. Did your self righteous child ever try to witness to the bullies about his faith ? How many people have you told about your faith today. None I bet because you are hiding behind a private school that you think does it for you

Dude, you really have some issues. This is a free country so I choose to send my kid to private school. I am not rich but we make sure his tuition is paid. Also, I wouldn't talk about my child. FYI- parents can really get upset when someone messes with their child. He is not self-righteous. He is only 9 years old. He knows the difference between right and wrong and he knows that bullying will not be tolerated. Maybe if the public school system would take this same stance toward bullying then parents would be comfortable sending their children to public schools. Now get off of your high horse and find something else to talk about.

You stop talking about the public schools . You arent there anymore so let it go. If you want to spend 10 grand va year on your child thats fine, but there are a lot of good Christian kids that know right from wrong in the public school. FYI yourself you are putting down public school kids and we get pretty upset too. I would like to know where all this bullying takes place. I visit the schools all the time and never see or hear anything. Sometimes kids get themselves bullied because they start it. Not saying your child just some children

as for schools here,as one post said teachers cannt teach for all the other things they have to do. alot of this stuff comes from central office where they have people getting a paycheck and have no ideal how to run a school system. then you have personal in schools that don't do there job and it gets passed down to teachers.last but not least parents need to step up and take part in kids up bringing rather than just having them as a limit to a check. why do we put so much pressure on teachers when kids don't care because parents don't care as long as the kid is at school and not home. look at Lauderdale county population and come to your own conclusion .
