Old gran, its a shame that you would not see the seriousness of our student drop out rates and use it as an opportunity to make sarcastic comments towards others. Actively involved parents will tell you that the district is great at making you feel unwanted. They prefer parents to not be involved. For the district to defer blame onto parents is sad. Our state should look at this as a litmus test and say what are we paying for? They should hold our district accountable for the money they are receiving.

I think that if you ask Brazil and Save our Schools, you would find out that this is all Arthur Stewart's fault, .

Don't overthink this. I have two current employees who both dropped out of school and you know why ..... because they just didn't like school and had no plans to go to college so they said they preferred to go to work and earn a paycheck. It had nothing to do with course offerings, or family involvement or budget cuts or entitlements. When people speak and offer their opinion, remember it's their opinion. When people actually do a little research before they speak, then you have a person worthy of listening to.

If the reporter had the opportunity to ask students that have dropped out, the true reasons would be uncovered. To have true Parent/Family Engagement we need authentic and welcoming environment in schools. The administration needs to address economic, cultural, and social diversities in our community. This is something that has been lacking for many years. I for one am tired of hearing about budget cuts. Remember the article about WCSD being 18th from the top of 500 schools districts as for funding. Not certain funding is for educating our youth not flushing the pockets in Central Office.

....could it be that our society has made it easier to get free handouts instead of working to actually pay your own bills?

Combine this with jorge's answer and I do believe we have a winner!

Could it be a school board more worried about money then the kids? Could it be the cops are called daily rather than trying to work things out, could it be teachers that don't care, could it be.......
