Lastest school test scores

Oldfart I worked in your county for well over 20 years dealing with students, parents, schools, administrator's and the courts along with other agency's within the county. Those 20 plus years are what my statement is based on. I have seen it first hand so it is not a shot in the dark. I am fully aware of the poverty in that county and am also aware that many of the impoverished eat more at school than they do at home. This is a greater reason for parents to emphasize the need for education to their children. There are some wonderful people there. I have seen kids who have had to take remedial classes in college and have still been successful. I have also seen those from other counties that have taken them also. Some completed their work some didn't. Those who are impoverished have available many opportunities and in my opinion it is a parents responsibility to find out about those for their children and many do. The sad part is many do not and the kids suffer from it. Yes Administration does play a role in every child's education and I am not relieving them of that in any way. If they are failing then parents need to react and make them accountable for it. That still does not relieve parents of their duties just because the kids get on the bus. Check the truancy rate there and if they aren't in school they will not acquire the knowledge to do well on testing day. That would be the responsibility of who, a 10 year old who didn't get up on his own on time or didn't want to go to begin with. I believe Mom and or Dad hold that responsibility.  (Nov 5, 2012 | post #5)

First the county attorney has little or nothing to do with prosecuting meth users or cookers. Those are felony charges and are dealt with by the Commonwealth's Attorney not the County Attorney. The issue with the school scores inn my opinion has more to do with parents and their attitude toward education. When education is important to the parents it will be to the kids and their effort and scores on these tests will reflect that quickly. For example there are numerous kids from the school system who are highly successful in college and in life and they were inspired to be that by parents who stressed education as vital to their success in life. It is important and they are successful.  (Nov 4, 2012 | post #2)

I could care less, had no idea it was played and still don't care who won or lost. I would say the same if it were reversed and whoever you are lost and drove home. This is what is wrong with athletics today and you prove that point very well.  (Nov 4, 2012 | post #5)

Oh so true, mine left after 33 1/2 years said she just wasn't happy and had trained herself to no longer love me. She trained both of us.  (Oct 26, 2012 | post #23)

fleas

You are probably killing the one's on the dog. You probably will have to treat his bed, your yard and your house if it is an indoor dog. The one's on it die and are replaced with onne's from those places.  (Oct 25, 2012 | post #2)

newborn drug testing

Meconium was what was used when I was a Social Worker. When it was reported the report always said the drugs were detected that way.  (Oct 1, 2012 | post #5)
