I do not understand how the comments of 1 parent means this article is true. All I am reading isRead More accusations. The people commenting seem to be in disbelief...do you think it is maybe because there may be false accusations here? Joey, I am sorry you get bullied, but be strong and speak up and get proper help from someone that can do something about it...no one deserves that.

On one hand I believe that It is not appropriate for a school professional to release informationRead More regarding a child to people that do not have a need to know the information. However, bullying needs to stop in our schools. In this paticular situation with this paticular family, I was the victim of malicious gossip created by this mother. The apple seems to have not fallen far from the tree. I would bet the allegations are unfounded. The most important message is that bullying needs to stop!!!!!

I also have had an issue unresolved going on 6 weeks- a bullying incident started by a schoolRead More employee . For some reason when a school is involved- people assume they will automatically do the right thing.Not always the case. I have been shuffled from person to person for 6 weeks. People need to realize a good chunk of the administration is making 6 digits but can't seem to resolve an issue.so yes then you sometimes need to alert the media and hire an attorney to get justice.Time for people to start paying close attention to how things are being handled. There are many good people working up at the high school- but a select few should be seeking employment elsewhere because instead of handling what they need to handle- its brushed under the rug. Considering this is a public school, some of them think they don't have to answer to the public. Time for a change.

"Virtual walls"? Geezus... GPS spoofing is but one way around the geofence. The otherRead More is simply walking up to someone and saying "HEY *(&*(^^#&*(Y($*() !!!!!" Or use a different app created with a bogus email account... *sigh*. Sticks and stones people... sticks and stones... Walk it off and move on...

Darice Kubinksi was one of the worst things that ever happen to Plainfield Schools and many peopleRead More wonder how Minooka let this head case run there high school. maybe they should of did a back ground check on her by running her maid name also to find out what they are getting there school system into. I feel sorry for the teachers and students that got to deal with her.

This "new age" idea that no student is smarter than the others is exactly why every otherRead More developed nation in the world is passing us up! China, Japan & S. Korea LOVE to see this kind of thinking--they know they can OWN us in 20 more years! My Mom was a teacher for 30+ years when the school district told her she had to teach to a "C" level and couldn't give extra attention or projects to more gifted students. She retired rather than buy in to that "kumbaya" stupidity. God help the US when the mantle of leadership is passed on to the Spud Generation!

All kids are NOT equal. and the class rank tells colleges the students more likely to complete theirRead More programs. Not every kid can throw a good football pass or pass a difficult Physics exam. Dumbing down curriculum does not make the class smarter, it only lowers the expectations.

The administration doesn't get a vote unless they are paying taxes in the district. Maybe we shouldRead More remove scoring from althletic events, too. Not.

This is a well set example of good parenting and a tight family unit. Awesome if I am thinkingRead More correctly her also has an older brother that my son interacted with in wrestling.

Is that the same "Rudy" that was charged with fraud by the SEC? I like MSM stories aboutRead More reporter's buddies and their families.

Depends. If the plan is to switch all buses to propane, install the tanks. If these are test buses,Read More leave an area for future tanks at the site and use the local supplier for now.
