LCparent 11 months, 1 week ago on Lee teacher jailed on drug charges

Teacher was pulled over by the drug unit after going to a known drug house. That sounds pretty guilty to me.

To those who poke fun, I hope you realize that drugs are everywhere, even in Lee County. They are in Deerfield also, so I hope you don't get shocked by that. When things like this happen, I look to see how the school system deals with it. I'll bet this teacher doesn't return to a Lee County classroom - can't say I'd think the same about other places.

You know Ruby, I was wondering the same thing. Hotdog commented a while back that he was wrong, and I commend that. Mr. Ed? How about you?

Our kids are learning a lot. We are proud!

My point was that they are PLAYING TOUGHER TEAMS. I guess you failed to see it - figures. Previous coach? Are you kidding? His record was around 10-70! Just about the only teams we beat were A teams! We beat no one in our classification while he was there! You really don't have a clue there.

At a high school where success has always been tough, and mostly not even there, he deserves a chance, just like she does.

By the way, the boys just beat Seminole. That gives them 3 wins - one less than ALL OF LAST YEAR, and equal or better than the three years before that.

I have more clues, as a matter of fact.

Right - so each team has played three of the "fab five" in the Albany Herald's list so far in six games. Dropped teams? Take a look at the previous schedules, then talk to me about that crap. You're dead wrong.

Look at the boys' record over the past 5 years. It couldn't get any worse, and with losing Cabrera, that was another hit. They are getting better though, due to GOOD COACHING.

Two girls decided not to play - one has done so before, and the other was a part-time player and had made that decision before the change. Come talk to me when you really know what you're talking about instead of trying to spread rumors. Yes, a AAAAA team should be able to find more players, and they are working on that from the middle school up. Again, it will take time. Again, even the girls weren't very good last year, even with Q.

My kid goes to school there, knows some of the players, and I know a few parents of those players. They couldn't be happier with the way things are right now. The wins will come - you can't expect a boys' team with less than 15 wins in the past 5 years COMBINED to run out to a 6-0 record, can you?

He's talking about basketball, and yes there has been a lot of progress. The girls lost one of the top 5 players in school history to graduation last year (and they weren't very good last year, by the way, which Mike Phillips doesn't add), and they are missing their best shooter right now due to injury. The boys lost their best player in the fall when Josh Cabrera moved to North Carolina. Both teams have also played a tougher schedule than they have before.

Actually, the difference is that they WON'T try to bully the teachers into doing that. They support their teachers and the jobs that they do!

Really? Let's see - One superintendent, one and a half assistant superintendents, three directors (curriculum, special education, federal programs), and one even doing two jobs (federal programs director and principal of pre-k). That's too much? Wow - try looking at the DCSS and tell me again about this.

JustAnotherVoice,

This is SPLOST money - that cannot be used to teacher salaries.

I don't think you realize how badly this is needed. The parking lot at the 9th grade school has pavement that is cracked and is nearly 60 years old, and there is no pavement at the bus shop. This has been needed for years.
