    As a child I went to many schools across several states but I have never seen a school system like this! The teachers could care less and act like children. And don't bother with the principle or school board in Giles they won't even return a call. I'm ashamed to send my children to this school and am homeschooling next year. I'm not the only parent who feels this way we are all at a loss as to what we can do?

    My school has gone down hill in the past few years. The punishment system is inconsistant and some of the teachers are either burned out or under qualified. I understand it is a hard job but some of the things that goes on there border on sexual harassment and assult between students and nothing is done. It's a good old boys town and time for this mom to move on with her daughters before they think this behavior is normal in the real world.
