  • I am writing, because I am a concerned parent and I am not getting any answers. This school term has been a disappointment not only in my eyes, but in our children. When our kids are getting ready for school they have always been excited about going to school. I am afraid that this year was not what they expected. They have been very much dissatisfied in the classes this year. The classes have not been challenging at all. This year has been nothing, but repeat and repeat the entire year. I feel that the teachers have not listened to the children at all.... These children believe it or not are very smart. They need a change to bring up some issues that they have. I don't think there is a handful of teachers that could say they listen to what the kids are saying. When I get home and ask every day how school went I get alright. When my child was in the 7th grade she would come home telling me what they had talked about that she was leaning about example: pyramids and doing interesting things and how she enjoyed being in her Special Interest class, and that they were learning different things they were not repeating all the time. This year when you ask there is no homework, the topics in class were all the same. These children, whom are on their way to the high school should be proud. I feel that they have mixed feeling. I don't think there is a teacher in the Middle School that could tell me that they had a great year and be able to tell what they have accomplished in class. The Middle School has turned into a BOOT CAMP. The teachers spend more time disciplining then teaching. So to me the term that you keep pushing "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" means nothing in my eyes nor the children. If you took a vote and asked the children how many of them feel that they are truly ready for the Ninth grade what do you as a teacher feel they would say???? The children should be aloud to grade the teacher to find out what is going on. I feel that the kids did not receive what they should have and they do not get the recognition they deserve. I feel they should all be recognized all the time. When the Children do not even have a counselor they feel they can go to and ask a question or make a statement about something they are concerned about bothers me. I have during this year been at the school 3 times and had a problem and also had called and stated I want to be informed about the problem and several times I myself had to call back and ask again what have they found out about this problem. I get the same answer let me talk to the teacher and find out and it is pushed off as if telling me we are going to do this and that. Is this suppose to shut me up i guess. I have had my fill of the middle school and I plan to personally keep pushing even after my child is out to try to help the children that are to follow in the eighth graders footsteps. They deserve to have a change, which they are not getting. I am tired of hearing that this is what the state requires. Show me the states guide lines I have asked twice and have not seen the first paper yet. I blame the school for the children that have not accomplished what they feel they should have the school system have let them down. Why wait till the last minute to say they are failing and every one running around trying to get them sent to the next grade. I have personal seen kids in the high school for example that do not have the grades to graduate but if you bring money there are teachers that will pass the child... What is this showing the kids that have worked to get the grad and struggled to keep it..... The school system needs to make these kids responsible for them selves and let them make sure they are doing what they have to make the grade. Do you really think that is the parents did not show up for work and be responsible that they will get paid...... Do you really think that they will be able to handle what is placed in front of them????? You the school system should be ashamed of what you have done or should I say what you have not done.......The Board of Education needs to take a good look at what is going on in our county. We voted a person to sit on the board that is going to look after the children's future. Is there one board member that can write a paper to state what they have done this term..... Why they should be allowed to sit on the board.... You can stand back and say I am on the Board of Education, but what have you done..... How many children have you talked to..... to find out what is going on in the school....... I can answer that for you none...... How many times have you walked the halls in the school or set in on a class and made notes of things to improve.... Or when to the rest rooms and found that they are not supplied with what the kids need. These are just a few little things that not one of you I am sure has done the entire school year..... I feel that each member on the boards should have to enter each school and speak to at least 15 kids a month and get there personal opinion of what is going on in their school..... I do mean their school..... I can personal tell you that the board member that are on the board will not get my vote.... They have show nothing this term.... except that they have got a check and can walk around like they are important.... I can personally tell you that I will be speaking out and plan to make a difference in Abbeville this next year......... I will also be writing to the newspaper and also to the state to make a point of changing the way the system works. The children that the School System is turning out majority cannot even fill out a simple application. This is just one example that I personally can relate to seeing out of the Children that come and apply for a job. What is the world coming to?????????????????

    Sincerely a very upset parent>>>>>>>
