    Teachers and staff only care about getting through the school year. They don't have the students best interest at heart. The students never learn what there mistakes are. So therefore they never learn right from wrong. When the School Board elected to take away away the fundamentals in writing and spelling. They forced a handicap for a lot of students who struggle with this in there education everyday. The county is flawed. They are turning back the clock on our children's education. Parents need to stand behind there children in there education. What we choose not to see and what we choose to accept because of this fast paced world can in turn cause harm to your children. There are a lot of mistakes that go on in the school system with there education. Watch and listen and take part in there education. This is for there future. There is no going back. What they learn and don't learn today will mold them into who they are for there future. What they are not being taught can effect them in there future. Stay connected with your child's education. Its one of the most important jobs as parents we should do for our kids.

    Overall Lanier schools are pretty good. Could do better with tutoring students who need extra help. Also Need better communication between parents and teachers.

    I have found the Lanier Co. School systen to be above average. Having 2 children in middle school I have always been informed by the staff of any situtions that needed correcting before it became a problem. The teachers are parents also and have great concern for their students.
