The names are not on the case due to children being minors. We want the classes stopped and offered legally as an option to the parent in their childrens education. Not beiing assigned by school personal without any reason or proof in righting and the district was asked to comply with the law in August. Some of the opt out classes are not offered in a coeducational setting. We tried many times through many options
with no success. I assure sue sue sue is not the issue and neither is the monetary damages. IT IS AS SIMPLE AS A PARENTS RIGHTS AND THE TITLE ix LAW. So don't assume when you have no details.

I taught for 30 years - just recently retired. I think ALL middle school classes should be segregated. I think in Louisville, they have even worked it out where one school is all middle school girls and another is all middle school boys. Yea! Rah! When, as a teacher, you have to deal with middle school kids spending practically all of their day flirting and or passing notes, etc......it's very frustrating to have to keep 'reeling them in' to focus on academics. I did not teach in this system, but I know several of the teachers and administrators. They are top notch! They do not deserve this type of response!

I do have a child in this school system and a subsitute teacher at that, If I wanted my daughter to go to all girl school I would have placed her in one. This is something that is up to the parents. The problem is all parent where sent letters home, and if you are not involved with your child you will not know what is going on in the school system. People think the kids go to school who cares I don't have to worry about a babysitter all day. This is wrong be INVOLVED WITH YOUR CHILDREN LOOK in thier bookbags, Ask them questions about thier day! Geeesh kids minds are on alot of things and do forget they have a paper that needs to be signed. Three kids and 2 step children all graduate so I know what I am talking about.
