My child failed most of the school year. but when it came time to take the EOG. He made 4's which is the highest you can get on the testing. The state and Federal Government give money to each county. The poorer the school test. The more money they get. They will test kids 3 times before the end of the year. But, the state only looks and gives money to the first time the kids take the test. The so call Education Lottery over 1/2 of that money goes back into the lottery for prizes. A very small amount goes to schools. This information is on the NCDPI website. Back in 2005 each school that had a child with special needs and with a IEP got $4000 each child. Pender county alone had 954 kids . They all got $4000 to teach and get what they needed in the school. 98% of the $4000went to salaries. This is wrong this system. Has been wrong for a very long time. There are a lot of good schools, teachers and kids, parents out there. We need to show up in numbers to school board meetings. and call the local officals that work and live in your community.. Get involved with the ones that handle the money. I seen in 2008 that North Topsail was getting more money because it was proforming so poorly. Have you seen the area and the money that is in Pender county. I have said it on here before change the ones that are handling the money and you will see a big differences.
