Thank you Off topic! The schools mine are in are doing fine. They went to Carter and Shaffner who met 100% and my girls are going to Johnson who met all but two.

OMG, I may sue this schoolsystem. I moved here from a small town, and live in St Matthews, a demographically GOOD neighborhood. The people at admin in JC schools said my kid goes to Waggener.

OMG, why did they do this to my baby??? He was terrorized at this school, and now REFUSES to leave our home, out of FEAR.

Why sue? Well, the idiots at the main office FAILED to disclose such safety issues to me, nor did they tell me half the students are bussed in from surrounding BAD neighborhoods. What is the point of shelling out for a damn good address when the neighborhood school cannot even provide textbooks to all kids. And worse of all, my formerly vibrant fun loving son has been changed fundamentally. Both of us need counseling, and I am mad as hell the school morons failed to tell me I HAD A CHOICE where my son could go!!!

Please, someone help us, and tell us where my son can be schooled (I cannot afford private school, UNFORTUNATELY) SAFELY in the city. Does a high school exist that there needs not be a neighborhood POLICEMAN patrolling the halls???

WHY DO Louisville parents accept this?? I am heartbroken, and am finding myself hating this town, after only 2 weeks.

My wife graduated in 1970, after Waggener had suffered the highest number of Vietnam casualties from any one high school in the US, but at that time, it was a county school and considered a very good school (but at that time Atherton was considered the best in the state). My daughter was in the AP program in the mid-90's and she told me of incidents, but never acknowledged fear.

It's sad to say but was true about Waggener H.S. Waggener was known in the neighborhood as needing a major overhaul to put it kindly. Few students in the neighborhood actually went to their district high school. All of the parents I knew put their kids name in the lottery or did hardship transfers to better schools - Male, Manual, Eastern, Ballard, etc. I'm sure there are successful students graduating from Waggener, however, the majority seems to be "Left Behind".

Ok, so what's the problem? Why have JCPS schools seemed to have fallen apart?
How do we discuss the issues of race, cultures, and other obvious matters without the Race-Card being called?
