many problems

These problems are not only present in Brunswick county or Pender county for that matter, New Hanover county does a better job keeping some of their matters private. I have taught in other states and must say with all honesty that the education system down here is horrible. Everything is test driven and this takes away from any real education that can occur in a classroom. The loud parents run the school districts down here. Parents are allowed to place their kids in any classes they want. Honors courses are anything but because any parent with money or influence is allowed to place their "brilliant" children in them. I have never seen a system where administrations and school boards are so afraid of parents and bad press. New Hanover county doesn't even have an attendance policy for kids. You can miss 100 unexcused days and can't be failed because of it. The kids are taught by their parents that the teachers are lower class and they enables them to take away any authority a teacher should have. God forbid a child is punished for doing something wrong. If it comes down to a teachers word versus that of a child of an influencial parent....guess what happens.
