<quoted text>Oh yeah look at all the former players that have gone on to be college stars,.........yeah I am still trying to think of one myself ? There used to be some good ballers up in the grove and down in Tyrone.
Being a college basketball star doesn't make you a successful adult. Or a college football star, or any other sport for that matter. We have had plenty that have earned the privilege of a fully paid education, or a partially paid education at the college level. That is a success in its own. What they choose to do with their education is what makes them successful. I know that several of these young ladies will earn that privilege also. Watch the newspaper for their pictures when they sign to the college of their choice. You can enjoy your big plate of crow then.

Yes, shame on the Board for putting sports ahead of academics. I am usually a supporter of the schools and administration. It's not easy dealing with the public. They blew it on this one though. Sports should NEVER come before education. They're sending the wrong message to the students. You failed us ACBOE.

Because of the time of the game, they would have actually lost money by keeping the schools open. It was a very legit call. Educate yourselves on the system before you get on a website and start mudslinging.

So are all of you that are complaining about school being out tomorrow going to tell me that you have never let your child miss school for anything.If you have then you put that before yoyr childs education.Personally i think it is a great idea that school is out for 3 days so maybe some of these students can get well and quit spreading germs.I know thats not the reason that they are out but it does help.Go ACHS Girls Basketball Team.I am very proud of you and i Thank the ANderson County Board of Education for letting all of our students to have the oppurtunity to go support our team.

They should have allowed any student or faculty legitimately going to the game to be excused, but instead they placed the larger burden on a lot more families that are not going to Bowling Green.

You couldn't be more ignorant if you tried. The kids who actually play sports, rarely drop out. They have goals and ambition. Why don't you quiz the dropouts about their extra-curricular activities and find out for yourself how wrong you really are.
From what I've seen the kids who play sports are usually the ones drunk at the parties and smoking the pot. They are the ones having sex with all the girls and seeing which one can go down the deepest. That's are sporty jocks in Anderson County School System. They stay in school alright but usually cheat to get where they are going. They party every night.

WOW I can tell you were educated in Anderson county, since you couldn't even comprehend what I wrote. I said that it's the ones who DIDN'T do well in sports who feel worthless,because the school system only put importanace on athletics! They feel that since they couldnt do well in sports they couldn't do anything else and be sucessful. Please learn to read and then you may come back with your moronic response. Thanks

I don't see why it matters tomorrow. The school was going to have no one there anyway because of the game and the play so just let it go. Here's how I feel, it's already done so stop complaint about haveing to find child care when you have more time to get on topic and talk about it then finding some. There is nothing you can do but get over it and cheer on these girls instead of making them feel bad about doing so good!:)

Your comment was about washed up sports stars working at Wendy's. I read fine. It is the parents responsibility to make sure their kids free time is occupied by something useful. Kids with too much free time and not enough parental guidance are the dropouts. It doesn't have to be athletics. Band, chorus, drama, clubs, church. All of these things occupy free time in a good way. Your children's learning experience doesn't start and stop with school hours. It is up to you. So if you are so devastated about them missing something in class tomorrow, maybe you should teach them something of importance yourself. A good place you could start would be how name calling makes you sound uneducated to others.

Excusing the students who go to the game instead of school doesn't replace the funding lost by their absences. Attendance was already down because of state tournament and since they made it another round, on a Friday, attendance would have been below that magic number where it would have cost the district more to operate than they are funded to be open.

Now let's figure in the staff members who love these girls and would travel down to show their support. Staff members are given a couple of paid personal days each year, so excusing them isn't an issue. If their position entails supervising kids, then a substitute must be requested. These substitutes are paid per day that they work - that would be doubling up pay in each of those classrooms that are already missing more than average students. Next, let's consider the educational ramifications. Since many students would be absent, the teachers would be having to reteach anything covered in class on game day. That would result in the loss of an instructional day. By canceling class, which will need to be made up, no students will miss instructional time. Anderson County Schools did not mess this up, KHSAA did by scheduling their game during a school day and by having the game at WKU rather than a more centrally located venue. As you read in the newspaper, our system is already losing money thanks to big government; it can't afford to lose any more.
One last point is that by giving students and staff the entire day rather than half, nobody will be trying to go to school and then rushing to make the poorly scheduled game.

We could of had a half a day of school. How many kids do you think will return after memorial day? How much money will that cost the school system? Some parents might have already made vacation plans for a cheap week.

Just maybe this wasn't that big off a deal to call off school.
I couldn't believe they actually did that.
Hummmmm because someone doesn't share your point of view they are mud slingers??

Maybe not all students heard the rumor and maybe if it was a possibility the school administrator should have sent a notice home in advance... that would have been considerate, probably still a burden for some but at least considerate.

Now we go to school after memorial day - wow I wonder how many kids are going to show up? In my opinion they do nothing after testing anyway! Why bring them to school just to sit there or have a party! What a waste of a day! I work at Toyota and we can't take off or we lose our job. I need my job too much to let that happen. One day's notice wasn't enough for us. I'm a single mom trying to support three children. I have to take my vacation on the last week of May because it's so cheap. So my kids won't be there on make up day! Good Luck on having all the kids there for attendance for money! Since everyone seems to think that's what this day is about!
