at bothsides, Parents vs failing
Empower Parents to Turnaround Failing SchoolsStrategy 2.3: Empower parents to trigger the turnaround of a failing school.
StudentsFirst will promote the rights of parents to organize and demand the transformation of chronically failing schools.

Community organizers in California have introduced a policy innovation that radically shifts power to the parents whose children are fated to attend chronically failing schools. If a majority of parents in a school attendance zone sign a petition, they gain the legal authority to transform their school. They can choose any of the four school turnaround options currently available in federal law — including bringing in a new school leader or putting the school under the management of a high-performing charter school operator.

This type of radical community empowerment must translate to improved outcomes for students. Any new solution will be held to the same high accountability standards of student achievement. If a school fails to produce the right results in terms of student performance, it will not survive

rub-ber-stamp [ruhb-er-stamp]-verb (used with object) 1. To imprint with a rubber stamp. 2. To give approval automatically without consideration: to rubber- stamp the president’s proposals.

Nothing more accurately portrays the concept of rubber-stamping than the performance evaluations of Kentucky’s school district superintendents. Kentucky’s recent National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) proficiency rates in math, reading and writing were abysmal. According to the NAEP, little more than one out of three fourth-grade students are proficient in math and reading, while in eighth grade, the most recent data show scarcely more than one in four students are proficient in math and writing

Look at some of the ridiculous things that are going on in our elementary classrooms, and you will see why our children are not learning to read, write, spell, or do simple math. Better get back to the old tried and proven methods that were successful. Also, I have said it once and I'll say it again: Education is not a priotity in a cesspool of welfarism.

It is like this if we had teachers that was willing to teach instead of just being there to get a pay check then our children would learn.
There are very few teachers in the school system that want to teach our children and there are other that are quailied but can't get the job, because the people that are already there want there family members in and they arent worth anything when it comes to teaching the children.
just there to say i am a teacher i have a degree, but the ones that it hurts are the children.
And the principal and superintendent will not do nothing about it because they dont care. I hope the score are so low that the state does take over and do something to help our children.

You say you hope the scores are so low tht the state takes over & does something to help the children. Well, what about the ones who get "left behind" because of those scores? Are you saying you're willing to sacrifice their education? I'm sorry, but that's not a very mature attitude for someone who claims to be qualified to be a teacher.

If I had children in school here, and wasn't satisfied with the quality of education they were getting, I'd make it my top priority to take them to one of the surrounding counties. It's my understanding that that can be done.

I am sure that some would want to take thier students to other schools, But many dont have the funds to travel every day, Being in rual area is some much different then in big towns wre there might be 3 or 4 schools close by, Cheapest way get good leadership and good teachers in.

Well, look at Isonville, for example, it doesn't even have all the teachers it needs. It has 5 full time teachers. They can't get the funding to get the other two it needs. Not that it would matter because of the ones there, only about two actually care about the children. I am a substitute teacher and I see this. Unfortunately, it is the ones who actually care about the children who get treated the worst at that school. God forbid if you try to help the kids. The principal there and the low life superintendent need to be fired and someone who will actually help the kids and put them first brought in..

Yes, but they are having to combine classes in the afternoon. They have 2 classes with 30 students in the afternoon with no aides in them. There are supposed to be aides, but they do not go in the classrooms like they are supposed to because the principal doesn't care.. One class is 1st and 2nd graders and the other has 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in it. Do you think they actually learn anything during this time? They are separated for math and reading, but that is all. The rest of the subjects suffer because of this. I have a child that attends this school and there really is no reason for them to be there past 1 p.m. because they do not learn anything once the classes are combined. That is too much for one teacher to handle by themselves. Not that the aides they have would be helpful since they do not have the education they need. All I am saying is either give them more teachers or give them qualified aides..

Isonville needs to be closed. The State has told the Board for years that it is a dry hole, but the Board just keeps throwing money into to it in order to keep people from getting mad. If it wasn't for the expense of Isonville the other schools could have more money to benefit everyone.

You have to keep Isonville going. It is the glue that keeps that community together. It was just updated not long ago and is well kept up.

Level Lakeside and build a new high school. There is plenty of flat land and you already have the ball fields.

Move the middle school to the high school building. Make the middle school 6-8.

Move the Lakeside kids to sandy hook elementary. Make the upstairs for grades kindergarten through second grade. What used to be the middle school or 7th and 8th grade make that 3rd through 5th grade.

Call your school board member and ask for them to look for a person who will provide the leadership it takes to move our schools forward.

We need to pay the same amount to the new super as we are paying now, We should not stop untill we have agood leader in the supers spot.

A . Team who are the coaches ?
