What is the No. 1 challenge for schools?
"Discipline is one of the major problems. Getting parents involved with homework and extra-curricular activities is another problem."
-- Charles Parker of Bloomfield
"Keeping kids in there is the biggest challenge. Too many kids are dropping out. Teachers also need higher pay."
-- Bill Hopkins of Bloomfield
"Teachers need to be more creative and spend more time explaining instead of putting material on the board and saying, 'Do it'."
-- Jamie Fulford & Colin
"A big challenge for schools is to keep up with technology. It constantly has to be upgraded."
-- Alyssa Westover of Linton
"Schools don't pay teachers enough, and teachers don't have enough control over kids. Parents should be able to control kids. It is not like when I raised my kids. They should go back to the old rules."
-- Mildred Howell of Linton
