It doesn't matter what action is taken as long as the parents think that the school system is nothing more than a group of babysitters. DEAD BEAT PARENTS are a huge part of the problem. As long as they show no respect for the system, what do you expect from the kids. Soon the Y-town schools will be gone and the charter schools will flourish. This will please the Governor. The ones who really want to learn will suffer.

Corruption in Mahoning County is alive and well. It is never going away. There is always someone in the wings ready to pick up the torch. Once again, another black eye.

Massive Air Power is all that is needed. It must be constant with no let ups.

Sorry, but I am not impressed with Ryan. Never was and never will be.

The Y-town schools have a bad reputation and that is a BIG reason they cannot get minority teachers. Not enough support from parents and a bad board of education. There are entirely too many dead beat parents who just don't care.

Typical ghetto attitude. Don't stop my government assistance.

You have all these thugs in the NFL who seem to get a slap on the wrist,with a few exceptions, and that's OK. If you watched the Colts game, it would have made no difference because they were totally outplayed. All teams through the years have cheated in some way. The NFL needs a complete revamp from the top down. I think the fine and suspension should be overturned. If it is not, the income from the sale of Brady's jerseys will cover the cost. Right now the Patriots may be stung, but next season they will be back in the playoffs.

Jackson and Sharpton are at their best at playing up the race card. Aside from that, the protesters are gaining nothing by rioting. I will bet that 99.9% of the rioters did not know Freddie Gray. How many people riot when a police officer is killed? It doesn't matter if the officer is white or black, no riots occur.

It takes an ideal board to select an ideal Super. Does Y-town have an ideal board? I think not!

A big part of the problem is that some parents are not parents anymore. Soon it will be too late to save the Y-town schools and the state will turn to charter schools. We all know that the Governor likes charter schools. Charter schools are not the answer,but, the current board of education is filled with people who are clueless as to what to do. And the result-------the students suffer. That is, the students who want to learn.
