  • Well I guess youre school is alright.
    My school is Madison High School of Tallulah, and I know that yall school
    probaly have a better education than ours but our school is crunker but that doesnt matter its all about that education, the reason why we dont get a good education, because of the students playing around and the teachers get tired of playing with little kids and they dont bother teaching them. But we have this one teacher that dont even try to teach and the students dont even bother her. I think shes not qualified but she should be teaching Head Start.
