Schools can be no better than the community of adults.
We have to come to terms with the fact that our children are coming from homes where parents have to work, sometimes double shifts. Our parents work night shifts. The homes are broken because of divorce, sometimes more than one time. Children feel the affects of the conflict. Parents do not know any other way to discipline than hitting a child as big as they are. There are drugs being used in the homes. There is mental illness and a high rate of suicide and incarceration in this county. Teens are having babies. There is gun fire at night in some areas. Money goes to jailing people. Sometimes those who are incarcerated were breadwinners and have children who attend Robertson County Schools. Children sometimes have to move two and three times a year missing school.
It is so easy to caste stones, and to be critical and not be a part of the solution. It seems as though bullying is just a part of culture. Children learn what they live.
Life is more than money and status. Is it time to practice faith in each other that we can allow peace to come to our Springfield?
BINGO!! It starts at home!! It's not the schools fault that little Johnny doesn't want to learn anything and his parents or parent is not gonna push him to learn. There are many parents out there that bust there butts to make ends meet and little Johnny's education and discipline gets over looked at home. But these other parents that just flat out don't give a damn and treat the school system as a baby sitter needs a reality check and need to get their **** together along with their kid.
