deny deny deny and if you deny you know anything long enough it will not be true or will just go away. school boards never acknowledge anything until it is splashed directly i their faces, then they deny that they ever knew anything about it till that moment. always been this way and apparently that's okay with citizens since you are too stupid to vote the board members out after one term each. that would be your best way to get positive results.

If Mrs.Turner was still superintendent, those little creeps would have NEVER been allowed to return to school.

Vote these people out! They are incapable of taking care of our children's needs & safety!

By allowing the accused back in school when they should have been expelled allowed for an unsafe School Environment for learning to take place. The state has already said the local school board had the power to kick the students out. This opens the door for all parents to sue the school, and the school board. If the child that was sexual assault has any physical or mental problems this falls under his civil rights being violated as well. Parents at Castlewood High School please don't take this, sue the $&%# and make them do their job. They are incapable of taking care of our children's needs & safety!

This is what you get from taking advice from Ben Chafin. He seems to love to spread his crappy "wait and see" advice far and wide. Worst attorney ever!
