I have only one question... Why isn't the principal being held responsible for this? Miller HAS taught at a school in Mobile county and was not renewed because she was a poor teacher and employee. The Loxley principal KNEW this and STILL hired her! I am pretty sure it was because her father is the PE coach. Miller was often late, left early, and didn't teach. Was she not ever observed by the principal? This is just another example of "who you know" and not about hiring the most qualified. Miller SHOULD lose her certification and the principal should be removed from the school. There are too many unemployed teachers who would do an amazing job, unlike Miller and Loxley administration.

Ramey is a poor excuse for a principal. My child attends Loxley and I have heard over and over again how unhappy the teachers are. This negative environment is not a good place and I will not send my child there next year, even if I have to move to a new district. I am sure nothing will happen to Ramey. She has gotten away with being a poor excuse of a principal this long.

Is no one in the Baldwin County school system taking notice here? There is a reason Miller cheated. She did not teach. I agree that she got the position because of her PE teacher father, but the administration allowed her to stay there. What is going to happen to these six graders that everyone knows are very far behind academically? Oh, they will go to the seventh grade and the pain of trying to teach these kids will be passed on to the middle school.
This school is full of so much more scandal than just this. I just wish someone would have the guts to stand up and speak to the powers that be. There is a major issue here that needs to be addressed instead of blaming NCLB.
Take notice and start talking if you want change. I have certainly voiced what I have seen, so let's see if anything begins to change. Step one: Fire Ramey!

dear teacher aka(give me a break, not too shocked,concerned parent) it is so obvious who you are, dont blame the school for your shortcomings as a parent and teacher, just because you dont take responsibility for your inability to parent effectively or teach, you want to blame everyone else. if you are adult enough, list your name and phone number and dont try and hide behind the anonimity of a forum
