OnToday 1 year, 9 months ago on Jeff Meadors: Time to restore support, integrity, dollars to classroom teachers

Why are private schools better? Because the parents show a commitment (financial) to an education. You can take the same teacher and put them in a public school one year and a private school the next. You would see very little change in the teacher. Why? Because the professional is going to do the job to the best of their ability. The difference is in what type of person the professional working with. Until (some) parents stop taking advantage of the free educational opportunity their child is receiving and instill in them a sense of personal responsibility, nothing will change.

Self defense my left eye. I'm sure the first thing most women think to do right after experiencing the trauma, pain, and overwhelming sense of joy and accomplishment is to beat the snot out of the baby daddy. Unfortunately now this punk has two potential victims. I sure hope he received counseling and help so that he doesn't continue his abuse. Allegedly.

Meadors has more answers than any of the others at NCSS combined. Sorry if you don't like that he points our serious problems in our school system. Continue to bury your head in the sand and pay more for less and see how that works out for you.

My neighborhood watch ismore successful than yours. Know why? Because we have never had anyone shot in the streets.

Yet NCSS wastes money on bringing in consultants to tell teachers how to teach. They already know how to, they just cant do it in this environment! NCSS needs someone at the county level in charge of discipline who has a spine

As for the Alcovy basketball team involved with a brawl, you simply kick every player off the team who was involved or whose parent was involved. But that wont happen because no one has the guts. Get ready for even more problems due to a lack of discipline. The parents wont do the right thing but the school system can. And if the coaches wont handle it then NCSS should suspend them. It's time to get serious!

This is why some people tried to stop Meadors from writing his columns and eventually wasted time and money trying to sue him. Those responsible for this type of negligence don't want it publicized.

This whole system suffers from major problems, but when people point it out they get in trouble. They get sued, or fired, or threatened. Thankfully some of the main offenders will be leaving soon. I'm glad light is being shed on some of these issues but I hope it continues. Accountability is a good thing.

Who is in charge of compliance and oversight at the county level? And don't say Dr. Mathews, he can't do everything all the time.
