I believe what her children said. My child had so many problems with harassment, and other problems with certain kids. When she went to the staff, both, principals and even the counselor, for months it still continued and NOTHING was done they never talked to the others , and when they did these same horrible kids were allowed to use profane language at my daughter even in front of the principals. As far as mr. hieghts he should not be a principal for any children he told my child to forget it she wouldn't remember this in 5 years. Of course when 4 of these kids had planned to jump her in the parking lot , I wasn't going to leave it up to any of the staff to help her much less do anything to stop it . So yes I went up there and saw these kids gathering around after school. So I proceeded to walk over to them and just let them no hey I'm her mother and if all you are going to jump her I'll be right in the middle of it , and yes there was proof . Quite a few texts and emails., that were very nasty some were from adults. Of course the denied it , even though i saw it myself. It really depends on your last name here at ol fulton high. I so have to say there a few very fine teachers there, but thats not enough. Your child is to be safe and protected from all the bads seeds who obviously are not there to learn, so why are they there interupting classes and bothering other children there to make something of there selves. I do belive that meaness and stupidity, and hate are taught by parents, so I do agree if more parents would be involved in there childs life more get to know them and whats going on in there life they could help . I do hope you win mrs. barnes they need a wake up call!!!!!!
This has not been a good year for Fulton Public Schools., except we got a new baseball field. Doesn't the buck stop at the top with the superintendent? Maybe more attention needs to be directed at the top by our school board. Seems to be a lot of problems since Dr. Enderle left.
Another reason we need vouchers to get our children out of these government schools.
Enrollment in Fulton Public Schools is dropping. More people are sending their children to St Peters, Christian Academy, Helias, or doing home schooling. There must be a reason. At a meet the candidates forum for the school board back in march several of the candidates stated that dropping enrollment was a very great concern for FPS. Maybe the superintendent should be given a job target to increase enrollment. Does this reflect a loss in confidence in FPS? Certainly adds to th arguments for vouches
Don't forget another reason for families selecting other forms of education for their children and that is the curriculum....content of text books, "No Child Left Behind", teaching to the standard tests. It all adds up to the dumbing down of America and people are beginning to realize their children are getting a poor education in public schools.
I am a retired classroom teacher. I taught many years ago and then retired to raise my family. When I returned to the classroom I was SHOCKED at the decline in education. It isn't the fault of the teachers. Testing was always done. Most of my students were always in the top percentile in the nation on testing. There is a BIG difference in how it is done now and how it was done before the federal government got involved with the creation of the Dept. of Ed. Our schools have gone down, down, down, down in comparison to other nations since the creation of the Dept. of Ed. Schools need to be returned to the local communities. Yes, there are local school boards. That is not the same. If you hear people talking about the Dept. of Ed. should be closed, please do not think they are crazy. There are many reasons.....take the federal government out of the schools and you will see our schools regain their international rank at the top.
