Have they ever got the Board Office at Union straightened out in the hiring or replacing of employees. Have they hired a principal for Mountain View Middle School yet.

The new Superintendent hired the principal and vice- principal at Mt. View to be her new Assistant Superintendents. Since when does a Superintendent in a school district this size need two assistant superintedents at $80,000 each per year.

I guess that's why we've been hearing so much about the WV school system wasting too much money on administrators. Wasn't this type of waste mentioned in the recent audit?

Only 80K a year??

They should be given instant raises! A minimum of 120K a year. Lower teachers salaries to make up the difference. These superintendents need more money.

who do you complain to when you are being told that kids are giving oral sex on the back of the bus, and other sexual activity and that the kids make out IN the school, in the hall ways and the teachers just laugh as they pass them?

Well if you want to see mild porn go to James Monroe at lunch and after school. It's so incredibly uncomfortable and disrespectful but it's acceptable because the teachers/principle stand right in the middle of it. Why can't we teach our children respect? Right from wrong? It's a no-win situation when I try to teach my daughter that holding holds is the limit in public but I randomly stop by the school to drop something off and she's right out front french kissing? With adults just standing around chit chatting like its no biggy?? Am I in the wrong for feeling like I'm beating my head against the wall!???

See? this is what I am talking about. My daughter started freshman year this year. She has always been a straight A student. I try to instill in her the importance of an education,and keeping her mind on her work, and boys can come later. But she goes to school and is bombarded with all these teenagers "hooking up" Making out at school. And ofcourse she is feeling like she is being left out, or missing something. How can I tell her what's acceptable and what's not, when she goes to school and sees other "grown ups" accepting this behavior. Shoot, when she was at Mountainview she came home and told me a couple of the teachers there were caught making out in an empty class room. Really?? I never said anything about it,because I know how rumors start, but it's just ridiculous that there seems to be no limits for physical affection in the school. School is not a place for this.

More money for what? All they do every day is go to different schools and walk around all day to see if things are going as they are supposed to be. Man are they going to get a wake up real soon.

Years ago parents had a voice in the school it was the PTA. The community needs to step up and demand that our schools be run a certain way. And we have to be a "in your face" kind of community to accomplish this.

I have tried to setup meetings with teachers and other school officials an tgey never return my call. I had a metting at the school 1 day an a teacher did not even know why we was there!! I was just blown away by that. And another thing is the way teachers talk to the students its unbelevable. Thwy worst mistake that school ever made was getting rid of my principal lee. But you get someone in there that actually wants the kids to learn an not take sides with the teachers kids or doctor kids or lawyers kids they get rid of him. Go figure get a fair principal in there tgat made the kids an the students both walk the line itss bye bye to him. That school is ridiculous. Im sickened by them.

I am not a rocket scientist or anything like that, and have no love for this Mo Co school system, but isn't that what a boss is supposed to do? Whatever they are getting paid, aren't they paid to "make sure things are going as they are supposed to be"? I don't understand the thinking of some people sometimes. I pay my taxes and wish things were different in our school system, but I would rather have someone out in the schools than sitting on their a$$ all day. But you do have me interested....... What is the wake up call gonna be? I am curious to sit back and watch now!

It doesn't matter how many times they walk around in the schools. They don't know what is going on when they leave. There are lots of things they don't know. If you are having a problem with a teacher and cannot get the problem solved, call Charleston. They will sure get things fixed in a hurry.

Yea they suppose to know what they are doin. But do they?? The answer is no. Sum teachers know more than the superindents. An than sum teachers know nothing at all. Its a shame it really is. I think most teachers dont wanna b there or jus there for the money. And as for walkin around I dont see tgem walkin the halls at all. That all ended when tgey let mr lee go. That was the worst mistake that school has ever made. Y did they let him go?? I dont know for sure but is it bc he is black?? Or was it bc he traeted every1 equal?? My opinion both. I never knew that a doctors kid lawyers kid teachers kid had more right to learn than jus a average joe. I say get mr lee back and get the school back to the way it was when he was there. He made a point to speak to every1 that came in that school if he was roaming the halls making sure that things were going they was supposed to. Actually I think he should be the superintendent. I guarantee things would be a lot better that way. He treated every1 equal. Aint that part of what this country is about?? This cpunry school system is goin down hill fast. GET MR. LEE BACK!! GET MR. LEE BACK!!
