I am so glad I moved away from SC schools, especially Lex 4. The teachers spent their time delousing and feeding the kids, and trying to manage to teach the kids something despite their meth addicted parents that would make fun of them if they spoke proper English at home. It is just a situation that is not able to be fixed. Good luck on your home values. I moved to Georgia and I LOVE it, they value education and everyone has teeth.

Wow.......thanx for pointing this out, though. I've been tring to make this point locally for some time now. I am afraid for my children's safety and education out there. I am glad you made it out alive and are doing well.

What city in Georgia did you move to? Tbilisi, Kutaisi or perhaps Dusheti up in the mountains?
