all i ever hear about Chaney is how bad it is, how all the kids that go there are all ignorant gangbangers, how it's all nonstop rioting and fighting. but how many of you have actually gone or go to this school? show of hands please.
if you were actually enrolled at or worked at Chaney you would realize that this school isn't nearly as dangerous or unsafe as Vindy and all of you make it out to be. do you even realize how poor this school's security is, really? you could literally walk into this school any time after 9 and do laps around the entire building without so much as a glance in your direction from even the administrators. nowq think of how much damage could be done but obviously hasn't.
as for the so called riots and fighting, they don't happen nearly as much as Vindy makes them out to be. 80% of them are because of barbaric freshmen whose parents obviously don't care enough to raise their children right. the other 20 result from the idiotic decision to force every soon-to-be dropout to remain in school at all costs when they should just cut their losses and let the failures who don't want an education to just stay at home and let the kids who actually want an education to learn.
bottom line is this: not every student that goes to Chaney is a drug dealer, wannabe gangster, or just general juvenile delinquent (although most of them are unfortunately...). if you haven't already guessed, i'm a student at Chaney High. i'm a senior, top 25 in my class, 3.0 gpa, well on my way to graduating on time, and have been accepted to college which i will be attending in the fall. so, the next time you read one of the myriad articles by Vindy bashing Chaney and decide you'll go to the comments and make uneducated assumptions, remember that you're insulting the very same kids you seem so intent on protecting from the big bad YCSD
