Just because my children don't attend AH that means I can't have an opinion? How about my motivation being driven because I don't want to see higher taxes or more teachers laid off. I have no need to do research but I suggest you and other parents who are so emotional do your own research as to what has been happening to NCDPI and how the loss of money affects us, because there will be more cuts next year as well. Lastly I just have to say that many are being petty, looking for anyway to put down someone who doesn't agree with you. I've heard it all, people tell me to "shut my mouth" then moving on to checking grammatical errors, telling what time of the day I should and should't be on the computer, questioning my qualifications as an educator and now you are questioning my compassion for my child because I am on the Internet while they are sleeping. When this news first broke I felt sorry for you parents but I was able to see the bigger picture of what this budget crisis is doing to the entire county, now after listening to your verbal attacks I feel sorry for you for a completely different reason. Good luck with your cause.
That's it, you figured me out. The real reason I have a strong opinion on this matter is because I am looking at the bigger picture. If there were no budget crisis I would have no problem keeping the school but the fact is that$ has to be cut and this was the outcome. The cost of keeping the school open will cost about a dozen teachers their jobs because that $ will have to come from somewhere. And I am not in favor of raising taxes on everyone for 1 school. There are plenty of people in this county that are unemployed or are struggling to put food on their tables at night. If the parents of AH can come up with a way to keep their school without raising taxes or having more teachers laid off, I support you 100%.
You hit the nail on the head. The parents are held accountable and you follow through big time. The parental support and involvement is amazing and that is the real reason your children are successful. That is also why your children will be successful wherever they go, because of you. Not because of a building.
School teacher isn't a compound word and you also forgot your period after school teacher. I do realize that you take any opinion that's not "pro" AH and attack that person, but when your only argument is to ridicule grammar you look petty and it doesn't help your cause. I admit I did it myself but the original posters errors were gratuitous.
That's too bad because I look forward to educating every child to the best of my ability. I routinely have a high majority of students who perform above grade level and I build lasting relationships with them and their families. I don't discriminate and treat every child in my class as if they were the most important thing and I go out of my way spending hundreds of my own dollars to make sure each student has everything they need to succeed. I have the highest expectations for every student in my class, so yeah maybe you would be better off with someone else.
I know 3 students from out of the AH attendance zone who were admitted last year when it was supposed to be open to only residents. These children should attend another school but some how were granted admission. I'm not hating on the parents, just on enrollment procedures
You have proven numerous times on these multiple boards exactly what kind of person you are by making remarks like the one you just did. You can feel free to attack me because I voice an opinion you don't want to hear but please don't question my qualifications or what I do on my free time. Yes I have made postings today, because I am also a parent of a child that was recently hospitalized, therefor he can't attend school until Mondayso I have to stay home with my sick child today. So if you feel justified in questioning my qualifications then so be it and feel free to have Dr. Purser investigate my Internet usage on my own free time from my own home.
I agree but the problem is you can't duplicate parental involvement.
Sorry but I'm not a mind reader. My reply was far from rude, it's just not what you wanted to hear. And if it was your child that made the post she probably shouldn't be referring to herself as the parent, which she did three times.
1. "Because my child is very unhappy that her school is closeing"
2. "I am not only thinking of my child im thinking of the teachers"
3. "helped both my children become the children they are today... "
It may not be my job but it should be someones job to point out the fact that she should be using correct grammer and spelling in a public forum and not misrepresenting herself. She'll learn soon enough that that's plagiarism.
You continue to make this personal. I want what's best for the County, all children and residents across the county, not just the ones that attend AH's. You do have an option if you wish to have your child in a year round program, it's in Southern Pines. If you choose not to put your child there then the choice was yours. Lastly, I shouldn't have to defend myself to people like you who obviously only care about themselves, but I am home today because one of my children has been hospitalized and can not go back to school until Monday. So I'm sorry that on my own time I posted my opinion. I guess according to you that I'm not highly qualified to teach because I'm also a parent who has to stay home when my child is sick?? This is just another example of YOU MYCHILDMATTERS, writing about things you have zero knowledge of and making arguements personal rather than sticking to the topic at hand, just like you did in the above post. Real classy!
