What happened to CES? It used to be one of the best schools in the state, but it is now ranked 489th out of 689 elementary schools in the state rankings. That is just horrendous! The teachers there need to be reprimanded!

The school was well known about 5 to 10 years ago to be cheating. The students were given the correct answers by teachers during testing. And,THAT is how the school was ranking so high.

Yeah... It's the TEACHER's fault. Never mind most kids are a box of rocks these days when it comes to brains.

Go to schooldigger.com and see how they rate with the 2012 results. They went WAYYYYY down. Yes, it is the teachers fault when they suck and don't teach what the children need to know. Maybe they need to worry less about gossiping and do their job!

Agree. The teachers there are not what they used to be. Yes, parents are responsible in part, but when scores are this bad, the teachers are not doing their jobs. There's more of a high-school clique vibe going on with the teachers at CES than worrying about the children's education. That many children are not un-eachable. I just looked at that link and I cannot believe it. I did not know this! Porter, Meade, and WR, are leaps and bounds above CES. When my first child was at CES, they gave the answers to the students and I was livid! I'm sure this is going on in many of the schools around here though.

You are right about the High School clique going on with the teachers.
They are 40 year olds going thru mid life crisis, wanting to be young again. Sorry ladies, but no amount of botox or tummy tucks is not going to make you 22 again. Need to stay off their iphones and actually pay attention to the kids.

It very well could be going on at the other schools, but CES has a reputation for doing it. You are right that teachers are not what they used to be. At the high schools, it was not easy to tell the students from the teachers. Thing is, the state is where the curriculum is set. It isn't that the children are unteachable. But, they can only learn what they are taught. I blame it mostly at the state level.

Yeah, but every school in the state has the same curriculum that comes from the top. CES is still in the bottom rankings in the state of KY. They aren't teaching the students anything. I think we need to go back to the days when kids failed if they didn't know the material. Now, they pass them on, even if they can barely read! I've witnessed the teachers at CES and their teenage/college-age behavior. A few years back, I remember them all getting boob jobs, tummy tucks, face fillers, botox, and everything! It's ridiculous. Some even wear low cut shirts with boobs popping out. What happened to professional clothing and teachers? Those teachers stink over there!

Here's a thought... How about forgetting about where the SCHOOL ranks and concentrate on the kids LEARNING and making good grades? All any school around here cares about is where they " rank". How about keeping your kids back a grade for the RIGHT REASONS? And no ... That isn't so they can play a SPORT! How about preparIng them or the REAL WORLD... where failure does NOT get you a promotion?

Nobody is arguing with you. How many that will be graduating in a few short months do you think can actually read? I have actually heard an assistant principal joke that he had to "go hand out diplomas to some 200 kids that can't even read."

My Point about the state level was that the students can only be taught what the teachers teach them. That is the reason why at test time, the students can't answer the questions. The teachers do not teach anymore. It could very well be because they are too busy trying to look like a 15 year old.
I was also trying to make the point that the state should set the bar for teachers higher.

I agree and disagree. First of all, most education starts at home. Today, a lot of kids don't even know the ABC's when going into kindergarten. Wonder why, because most parents don't teach their kids anything. However, I do agree that teachers have too much concern with their own interests instead if the children. Too much concern with lipgloss, hair extensions, boob jobs and always have their iPhones in hand. I've witnessed it. Texting and FB during class time. How can they teach or be an example?

That is the old school way and it seems the thinking is that old school way doesn't keep up...personally, I think the students should be taught the basic reading and writing first. If a person cannot read, then all else is lost.

Another reason no teaching is going on its hard to teach when they are on the playground for 2 and 3 hours at a time this happens it was brought to someones attention and they said its better to let them do it instead of starting trouble the kids do need to be worked with at home but it needs to continue at school until their routine changes on teaching their scores will never go up

When we were kids corporal punishment was permitted. We had BETTER pay attention. If we failed, we failed. We repeated the grade. Now, corporal punishment isn't permitted in many schools. As was pointed out, kids are just pushed on. Agreed it's partly the parents fault, but the teachers share the blame also.

What really are the qualifications to be a teacher? Not a lot really. For a fact, none of them are taught how to teach. It's a rare teacher that knows how to make a class enjoyable. It occurs to me if the teachers themselves were taught how to teach, we would have students with a lot better grades and could spell words that contained more than 4 letters.

Why dont you teach the teachers oh wise user of google?
You could point out how to pretend to be smarter than you really are and show them how to kiss peoples ass you fear .You could tell them how to milk the system for government checks amongst other things.

I believe I already said the bar for teachers should be set higher. I can tell you that for the first time in my life, I am at odds with public education. As more and more technology is used in the classroom, none of the basic 3 Rs will be taught. Cursive writing has been removed.

Another point is when all is said and done, some people just thirst for knowledge and they seek it. So, the bottom line is if a person wants to learn, they will learn. I think the main role a teacher plays(or should play) is to encourage that. Teachers are not setting good examples anymore. Generally speaking. There are still some good teachers.

the only ones that complain, is the ones that do nothing for their children. if your not satisfied with the education system do something about it. blame, blame , blame, to much homework, to much this, to much that. MAYBE for once the parent should to a roll in the lives of their children. if your waiting on someone to do it for you, its going to be a long wait.
