Actually most of it is just some fluke to make everyone think everything is still going good. Casey County used to have an awesome dual credit program for the high school. Now their aren't even enough students with qualifying scores to make an entire class.

I wonder why we have a High Performing School honored by the State? Could it possibly be that we have the right people in place? Or, is it just a fluke or by pure accident? Larry L you are a negative idiot and a fool!
Casey was a so-called High Perfroming school but it was just reported in the Casey News that Casey students are below the State ACT average test scores. Something just don't seem right about this picture. It seems that the past guru would be a great sales person because that is exactly what she was. She just keeps filling up that "High Performing" bank account.

As a Casey County resident with no children, I could care less about the politics played out in the system, except for one fact- I AM SICK AND TIRED of PAYING SCHOOL TAXES on EVERYTHING I own, PLUS all of my utilities, only to see the children of this county display ignorance of elementary truths and very poor work ethics!

Money will not solve the problems this school system exhibits.(The nepotism and political hiring practices, for example.)

Teachers are paid to teach, but send the kids home clueless and oblivious to real-world issues and ideas. A lack of discipline in the classroom is obvious from the outside-looking-in, and the educational system seems to be nothing more than an over-educated idiot's idea of a perpetual motion machine that just churns out more of the same type of inept school teachers and administrators that have absolutely no clue about anything other than how to "work their way up" the school system's political ladder.

*We should firmly stand for a REDUCTION in school tax rates!*

It is time to let them deal with the problems they have created and continue to create. You know, just like those of us who work in the private sector that can not simply give ourselves a raise in revenue to cover up our budgeting mistakes and operational inefficiencies. Break the cycle and give the people some value for the tax dollars invested.

You are generally correct--however you should also consider: 1) Teachers teach "the test"--not what children need to know. 2) A teacher cannot be fired.

These can only be changed by the state legislature----want change in education---lobby your state legislator to change these two points.

about right now I bet he is wishing he had checked teaching credentials more, and that he had walked over to the file cabinet and looked to see if qualified people had applied for jobs before he signed his name to a lie.

Teachers can be fired....but administrators have to have the guts to do it the legal way. I have seen teachers let go in other counties, put them on an assistance plan, document document document...then when they don't get it together , you show them the door.

I taught for years and to be honest I spent lots of my own money on students, and I wasn't getting rich folks! Tell me another profession who has 6-8 years of college and makes less than most 2 year medical degrees? To be honest, I do not envy teachers today, and I have only been out a couple years, but kids act horrible yet we are supposed to teach them.

Let their parents come in and you understand why!

Teachers can't discipline....can't teach for the Iphones...for the kids being 2 hours late for class...they are asleep because bedtime was 1 am....they don't pay attention in class....but you are lumping all bad teachers in one huge pile huh!

When parents start being parents and God is allowed back in our lives and schools we might see a change, but unless it does...you couldn't pay me enough to teach right now...society gets dumber all the time!

Absolutely underpaid for the many hours they spend making very important decisions! They go to many distant meetings to keep them up to date on the ever changing education policies and laws. They are also liable for law suits. They really should be paid much more but, basically, they serve for the good of the community and it's children/youth and most definitely not for the money!
the school board is overpaid and underworked. anybody who actually believes your comment, i will show you 75 people who disagrees with you. all they do is set on their fist and lean back on their thumb.
