Really? The Richmond County

Really? The Richmond County Students now feel they have the right to warn the police to "stay away from the fight"? I know the schools have gone to hell in Richmond County but when the students start threatning and punching armed police officers we are very far beyond bringing these schools back under proper control. Without proper safety, security and discipline, the educational process will never begin and Richmond County Schools will continue graduating 30% in schools like Laney and a not much more impressive 70% in schools like Westside. This student should be EXPELLED PERMANTLY from public education and know what life is behind bars until the age of 21. This is absolutely ridiculous - It is beyond time to take back our schools in Richmond County and bring them under control. If you simply removed ALL of those who don't wish to get an education and continue disrupting schools (10%) then you would greatly improve all schools and give the medicore students a chance to excel and graduate. We MUST STOP enabling our youth to be thugs on campus and graduate to jail. Dr. Bedden, Take Action Now!!!

Butler High School needs to

Butler High School needs to be closed. They aren't educating those students. The school is a joke for education. If you are a true educator, then you know that education in not being perform at this school. No more excuses are accepted. Year after year it is not getting any better. It is a matter of time that all of the students will band together and put that school on a lock down for the demand of getting a quality level of education. This is no longer 1952. Every freshman class starts over a thousand students. Each freshman class end up with less than 250 students on graduation day. This have been a 20 year trend for this school. These kids are being on 7:15AM till 2:15PM prison sentence with no education each day. At least in prison, they are getting an education. RCSO can't and shouldn't be allowed to walk the halls again. Butler has already had a bad cop on campus. So for those who want to judge these students, walk the halls and classrooms that they have to and then make your statements. The school zone road signs have been wrong for over ten years on Peach Orchard Road. Close down this school and give these kids a chance for a better level of education.
