At what point did the school board take the right away from parents to protect thier children? Why can't a parent get answers from anyone in the school system?
I have a 9 yr old son who came home from school 12-20-06 and informed me he had been choked and punched while walking between classes. The teacher he reported this to did no more than move him to the other side of the classroom. When called upon by me to take further action this teacher was reluctant. The principle felt a warning to the children involved was enough and made my child -the victim- feel at fault!
At what point did our society decide that what the principle says goes? I was unaware that the safety of my child rest solely on the decision of one person. What happened to the punishment fitting the crime? CHOKING another persons I feel warrants more than a warning.

2 years ago at the Hoke High School my daughters were walking to the bus someone threw something at one of them and she had a huge gash in her head! No one seen anything so they say what are the police doing there if they are not protecting my kids? We had to pay for the hospital bill because the board of education said we didn't have school insurance what kind of crap is that? They never did anything about it! Safety at schools? That is a laugh! Also this year my other daughter was jumped by two girls! How are they being protected and safe at school??? It is a bunch of Bull!

I am recently a transplant from NY I have one son who attends Hoke High and one that attends East Hoke Middle. Both of my children have been involed with some kind of issue in school my oldest had a fight with some one who actually came to my house and stated that he wanted to fight him I called the police they told my son to report it to the SRO in the school this was done and this same boy looked for my son until he found him and started fighting my son was sent to Turlington for 10 days which is a joke and now has to go to court for assualt when the Assistant Principal Mr Teal would have done his job this would have been avoided What Hoke County schools say is that you can't defend yourself just get your ass kicked and that's it well like I said I am from NY and we don't play that

I understand that.It is totally wrong sounds like the same as me.I got ahold of the Juvinial court and got it done that way.I had to have my daughter file assault charges on the other girl we went to court 3 times and finally it was taken care of the judge refused to continue it because she had the same excuse. The younger girl was being supervised but, she is trying to get her friends to start things again these girls are nothing but trouble and the school wont do a thing except keep them out of the same class but the one girl was standing at my daughters class staring at her.Then the girls friend posted on myspace about beating up my daughter.

I am going to school to become a teacher and live in Hoke County and went to Hoke County Schools. I work in Cumberland County schools. It is all political in Hoke County. They do not care about the safety or education of the students. They are near the bottom in NC in almost every category and yet will not make any changes. The board of education is a joke. Full of people who never worked in the schools. Recently, someone asked the Superintendent if they are aware of the serious gang and drug problem at Hoke High. I quote he said, "Yeah, when you find an answer let me know!" They are doing absolutely nothing. I also asked members of the board of any anti-gang or anti-violence programs. They could not name one that they have started or plan on starting. They are a bunch of morons who don't care! I'm seriously thinking about taking the issues to the next level. The drop out rate is overwhelming as well. No one is doing a thing about it!

You cant just listen to what your kids say.
I am in the hoke county district and attend one of the schools. Im sorry but your kids could have instigated some of the situations or just hung out with the wrong kids so dont blame the teachers or the principal they probably know more about the situation than what your kid is telling you. Im just saying

I too feel unsafe for my child in the Hoke County School system. My son attends JW Turlington. He took up for a gay black boy who was being picked on by two other boys. They were calling him faggot and worse, and my son told the boys to just stop picking on them. The boys waited for my son, one outside the classroom door, and the other outside of the school building. The incident was caught on camera, clearly showing that my son was indeed "jumped". There was an art tool being wielded at my son. The boys were using it as a "shank". My son managed to take the tool away from the other boy and defended himself to the best of his ability without the tool. I'm not sure how long it took school officials to respond, but the outcome could have been much worse for my son. Not to mention the fact that because he defended himself, he was suspended for 5 days. The school contacted me for a "hearing". We went and they presented to me the evidence they had obtained. All I could think was how in the world could this happen? And why, given the evidence, should MY child have been suspended at all? Granted, he was allowed to come back where the other boys were not. But I was ready to tell my son to drop out. I am still uneasy about my decision to let him return to school there, but he is of age and it's out of my hands. I know there could have been more done and I feel completely wronged. Then they tell me that I can file charges against the boys? What exactly does the school hold themselves accountable for? I am so glad that my children's time in school is almost over.

My son went to Hoke High a few yrs. back. That school is unbelievable, the teachers as well as the principals stick their head in the sand when something happens to one of the kids. They are just plain scared, if they would just supervise and use the SRO's for their intented purpose things might get better. My son got jumped, beat up, car keyed, things shoved into his backpack, backpack stolen...ect. I spent so much time up there raising hell with the officials, i'm sure they hated me but if you mess with my kids you've made a mistake. I'm not saying my kids are perfect but Hoke county keeps a blind eye when things go on. Wake up people....before someone gets severely hurt.

i have had children in hoke county schools for 20 yrs now and no they do not do anything to help the kids ....if you find somebody who will help them they have their job threatened.....the bullies get off and the abused kids get punished like they are the problem ...teachers purposely fail the students if you cause them any problems by complaining about the going ons there...you try to follow the proper channels to fix the situation but nobody will do their jobs....when push them far enough you get told not to step foot on school property or go to jail yet the reasons they give you are made up to suit them and they can not prove it....this year alone my daughter was threatened by a princple and bullied by teachers yet the police wont take reports because they dont find what she said a threat sorry but i do !!!! i called our board of instructions over all schools in NC and when they heard my complaints told me to sue the school system and yes i belive i will they just hope we do not have the money for the lawsuit......beware of the schools and watch your children no matter how strange it sounds what your kids tell you ....the adults do lie even as educators on the children ......we all want to think they would not do that and blame our kids for making stuff up but ive seen it for myself and caught them in their lies to save their asses....do listen to your children ask other children whatever it takes .....it is up to us as parents to protect the children because they sure will not!!!!!
