So I'm seeing alot of posts on here, making excuses for the parents not being involved in thier kids lives….and saying this was totally on the teachers to be in charge….Can everyone get it straight for once?

Where were the "concerned parents". Cant have it both ways people!🤦‍♀️

  13. It’s 50/50 like this is a big example on why we need to invest on high school support staff because my school did so and this was a non existent problem . Like why did they not have a management team of administrators along with teachers tacking this. Also the parents why were they not informed at all or expected to partake it there kids education. Very sloppy plus there was only 37 kids my school had over 180 and did this well

  14. How do the school let you miss out???? Now stop hold the child and parents responsible.

  15. When you go to a real school, where the parents, teacher, counselors, principal, board and district are doing their jobs, that does not happen. No wonder there are so many mass shooting and deliquency.
