I have two children that attend Watson Elementary and the education they have received has been nothing less then exemplary. They deserve to be treated fairly and with more respect for the excellence that they obtain for their students. Nipsy you are wrong for suggesting that it is the schools responsibility alone for controlling the bullying problem. Why do we always forget the parental responsibility for our children's behavior and learning and success? Some parents are bigger bullies than thier children and often encourage it. And when parents aren't home or just don't care about what their kids are doing as long as they don't have to bother with them, you expect teachers to do miracles. And the work to rule has been difficult for many of the teachers. Teachers do WAAAAAY more than what is in their job description that they never expect to get credit for, but the general public and teacher-haters never see or think about that. Austintown teachers have been working way too long without a contract or the respect from the superintendent. Kas-ass has pretty much destroyed public education funding in favor of his cronies, and it has been hard financially for every school district. But the Austintown teachers deserve more.
