If you work in our schools and you know things going on but nothing is ever done about it, please now is the time to bring it out. Let the new people know what has really got our education system in the shape it is in. If the higher ups don't know what's wrong it will never be fixed and I don't mean GA,MR,DD,SP or anyone on the hill it needs to go higher. State Dept.

Wayne county has a problem with nepatism. The schools suck and most of the coaches suck. They spit out screwed up kids and then complain about the "youth". sick of them all. Most don't teach for the kids, they teach for the benefits, such as coaching, control...etc.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the WCBOE is too connected with the Wayne courthouse. The result is "typical" Wayne county politics at it's worst. Clean up the courthouse first and the school board will follow. Until the idiotic voters in this county wise up, the corruption and back room deals is what can be expected on the hill. As one poster said, nepotism is just one of the many problems in this county. You know what I mean ? You hire my dim-witted son, I'll give your junkie daughter a contract within the system too. With this crap going on all through the county good, solid, employees will never be hired.

I put this on here before and it was removed-so I'm putting it again
Wayne High school LEAKS--has MOLD --LOOSE TILE --
WHY does everything go to other schools and the nice Wayne High School is never repaired? A new rubber roof and good bleach cleaning with new flooring would save lots of money--instead of letting the school fall apart and having to build a new one.

Another thing--Lavalette Elementary needs a bigger cafeteria or a rec. room--we were packed in there and could not breath--besides the children standing squashed against each other and sitting in the floor.Parents and grandparents were also sitting in the floor!!!!!! while others have top of the line areas for their programs etc--WHY are others left out????????
ALL SHOULD BE EQUAL!!!!!!!!!!
Let's get some people in there who care about the children __NOT about the area or who's who!!!!!!!

Where have you been?? Things have been reported to the state department repeatedly, but people on the hill are connected to senators, representatives, etc. The state educational system have been in wayne county six or seven times over the past 3 years, write up a few citations, then leave. It's going to take someone with some contacts in Charleston to bring change to the county, and that won't happen this year because it's an election year!!

Contact a member of the state board of education. They can request a full OEPA review of Wayne County Schools.

Well the wayne high school has a good staff and okay programs, but as far as school goes there is asbestos under the tiles in the main building i know that. As well as the classy doublewide theyre putting in now to replace "the batcave"

Also some teachers are alittle too laid back such as the home ec teacher has no certification to teach the class, and the healyh occupations teacher has her students grade papers for her and not only does that cause problems because they may help or damage each others grades, and shows professionalism. Good job wayne high school, you can create a state champion football team, but can't fund a safe nice school to visit. You shouldnt have to put on a show when a relativkey famous person comes by, it should be in its natutal state.

you are your children's teacher parents. you need to learn teachers can only show them book smarts, not life lessons thats your job quit blaming the schools and look around you. i went to detroit public schools growing up, you guys get on here and cry about wayne?? i would have loved to go to school with out gangs,shootings, drug deals and stolen cars from the school parking lots, metal detectors and cops at every entrance checking purses and bookbags before school. my teachers did not teach me shit but math,english,history and so on, but my parents raised me right and i turned out a good hard working honest, non drug using person. I graduated from a school far worse that you have ever been around [henry ford h.s] ITS NOT THE TEACHERS YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT, ITS YOU THE PARENTS !!!! BE HAPPY YOU LIVE IN A NICE PLACE LIKE WAYNE AND THANK GOD YOUR NOT IN A LARGE MAJOR CITY HAVING TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEMS THOSE SCHOOLS HAVE

That is about as stupid as you can get. You truly think that teachers, who are children's authority for at least 7 hours a day, then acting as coaches another couple of hours a day, in a largely populated environment that parents have no way of being in with their children, have only the responsibility of teaching? Then they must really suck if that is all they have to do and still can't get up to the national average. When I am at home with my kids, there aren't 1000 or so more kids sitting there with us. Let me tag along with my kid at school so that anytime there is a situation that occurs, I can address life skills then...oh wait, I forgot, parents are allowed to do that. Yeah, genius interpretation of the role of teachers. I guess role model are not words you have heard before? Guidance counselors....what are they supposed to teach? Math or Spelling?

All it would take in several contacts to state board of education members to insist on some issues that you don't care to state in writing. At the very least, they will give you a ritten response. I did that in the last county we lived in and they did a full audit and foound all kinds of problems.

For those of you who keep saying "call the State Board of Education" or "Board Members"..it's been done REPEATEDLY, but nothing comes of any of it. Wayne Superintendents and Directors let the state representatives speak to certain people that support the way things are now. Look who we have in the state dept. representing Wayne County and you'll know why nothing will be done..favors for politicians is what gets things done. The superintedents have hired people in finance positions that were NEVER bid, has hired cousins, nephews, and a friend of a friend to keep in good with MU, the vocational school in Huntington, as well as local politicians that they promise their votes to. WAKE UP people

I agree with Politics rule. The only way you are ever going to get someone to actually care about these kids and do the right thing is to hit them with the legalities of it. That means, taking constant notes of everything, calls and to who you talked to, what has happened, etc. When these people realize that they can legally be hit, they will do what they need or at least make things a little better. You could also include writing to the papers, and so on, to let voters know what could happen with their own children. Academics are low in this state because we have qualified people working on the board, or people who actually care about kids or things would not have gotten this bad now.
