Get a life instead of trying to make people look bad. There are some people that should not be teachers, but to dismiss the staff of the entire county is not right on your part.

Are you a teacher? Are you there everyday? I am doubting it. But, I'm sure you know SO much about what's going on because your child come home and tells you what they want you to hear. Back in the old days, a parent took a teacher's word on their child's behavior. Today, the parents always think their child is right, and the teacher is the enemy. It's truly sad.

I am a student in LCHS. Profanity and intimidation is very prevalent, along with a lack of professionalism from most. There are some teachers that actually do what they should. However, you can't just dismiss everything a child says. Instead of ignoring them, investigate it. Report it. Have the state investigate. Better to be safe than sorry.

Good...we NEED more intimidation, if it's used to discipline. The kids out there are rude as ever. I don't like our future with those children.

When I was in school you were slightly intimidated by your teachers and listened. Today, kids have no respect for the elders in their family, and definitely not for teachers. They make teachers into the enemy, especially when they don't get their butt kissed. Here's how it works:
Teacher spends weeks going over a topic to students. Their job depends upon these kids being able to understand the concepts, and test day comes....some of them do bad. What happens? The students hate the teacher because THEY failed a test. They go home and blame the teacher when their parents ask about their grade.

There are bad teachers, but I guarantee if you sat back and watched for yourself, you'd see the attitude and disrespect that they deal with on a daily basis. You'd wonder how they do it? Kids think that teachers should be their pals, and that's not the way it goes. Notice that students always love those teachers that gossip and act like their bud, but hate the ones that make them actually do work.

So before you assume, you better heavily investigate because I guarantee that if you could sit and watch how your baby acts at school sometimes, you'd be shocked and slightly embarassed.

I do not disagree with you at all. I see the disrespect daily. It's outrageous, and something needs to be done about. However, the disrespect and disruption comes from kids that the teachers never say anything to.(Yes, I'm invoking the "You have a name" thing). However, a teacher cannot legal curse at a kid. And I'm all for more intimidation. The teachers have killed the act of intimidation. They say "Stop ____ or you'll be wrote up." And it never happens. When I said something regarding "professionalism", I was directing that towards the the teachers that act like "pals". That's not what I want as a student.
I see what the teachers go through, but in most of my classes, we do only one worksheet a day and we're done after 20 minutes. They have tenure, and they don't have to worry.

I am referring to the teachers that use not discipline but disgrace on some children because of a physical factor, it is discrimination. You might want to get your story before you think you know what I am talking about. YOU DON'T KNOW ALL OF THE FACTS! Don't start assuming anything, you know what they say about assuming anything. It makes an a** out of you! There are plenty of teachers in Lewis County that are very professional and do their job well, then you have a few that are rotten and get away with it every day!!!!

I really believe that some teachers have something over on the school board, it is called black mail. It is not only in the schools but every where. But it is our children that suffer because of this nonsense!!!!

The biggest mistake we have made as a society in the last 25 years is no longer allowing teachers to bust the kids ass. Respect is no more. Kids attitudes have went down hill. Education as a whole has went down hill. Society has went down hill. All with this one change.

My dear, my facts are very straight and I'm sure I have more knowledge than you on this subject. How about you quit assuming that your kid is good?

I have a feeling the lack of spanking is not the cause of society going "down hill", but I do agree the teachers should be at least allowed, with certain regulations, to smack a kid upside the head every now and then.

No, not even "many". There's a few kids that do it so much and so often it just seems to be "many". Instead of condemning the entire student body, look towards the administration and ask them why they haven't done anything to these kids! Last year, one kid made a scene everyday durning one of my classes. The school kept giving him ISD, then would put him right back in. What do they do in ISD? Roam the halls, sleep, relax. I've heard many students say they enjoy ISD because they don't have to do anything. Pathetic.

There you go again assuming! My two kids in school have always been very quiet and shy. Every time I hear a comment about them, it is they are wonderful students and always really quiet in class!

I guess I'm just full of assumptions about students, while you're full of them about teachers! It works both ways.

As I went through school paddling was taken out during my elementary years. I was taught to have respect for my elders and actually ended up devoting several years of my working years to taking care of elderly in the nursing home. As I went through high school I would sit with elderly just to keep them company and from being so lonely. I was always a quiet and shy student and never got into any trouble in school. My two kids are the same way, I have taught them to have respect also. I am referring to a teacher in particular that I have talked to on several occasions that has not one time told me that my children are bad or disruptive. But does feel that they need to belittle kids because they aren't up to their standards physically. Not everyone is athletic and they don't seem to understand these things. I just wish that everyone would treat each other with respect and stop trying to think that people are always trying to start trouble. You better believe I have been to every level of the community as far as the school system with my problem and ready to take the next step.

My kids love their teachers at the HS, especially the ones that make them work hard. Some of their teachers get verbally rough with them, but only in the way that parents should. We've got reasonably good kids in this community, but some kids can't take someone pressing them to step up. I'd far rather my teacher be tough with my kids than coddle them and send them into work or college dumb as rocks. My daughter was talking about her teacher the other day--she said the woman prompted the "well-named" kids to step up just as much as she called out the hooligans. Just what we need.

So this was about bus drivers! What's up with that? That's the reason this post was started in the first place! Explain about them! I've tried several times complaining about cursing and put right crude behavior on my sons bus. But was ignored. I will fix the situation myself! If your child rides out on a bus towards Tollesboro, ask your children if things are okay on their bus!
