My grand children attend CPS. They look foward to going to school every day. They absolutely love their teachers and principals. They have learned so much and continue to improve yearly. Teachers and administrators are working long past school hours. Great students- great teachers - great principals - GREAT SCHOOL

Teachers and principals work hard to make sure students learn. The previous post is not about CPS....they talk about PCSSD...Pulaski county schools.

I asked that my son be moved to another class. I was told NO! My child is scared, feels unsafe to go back into class with this teacher. This has taken an emotional toll on my son. At what point as a parent can we protect our children from teachers/principals like this? The day after we met with PCSSD/staff the teacher and principal took my child out of class and interagated. I told the principal I should have been notified. She told me that this is her school and she will and can run it the way she wishes. Anyway. When we met with PCSSD he took my child out of class and questioned him about what had happened. I gave the ok to record the meeting with my child. After the meeting he refused to let me hear the conversation with my son. Because my child stated that his teacher did hit him twice and screamed into his ear. Again I was told it was justified why my child was struck and screamed at because he was looking away from his test!

I had a daughter that went to this school. I have to say that we were very lucky in getting great teachers. Some of the faculty are not so great. There is no discipline in the school. I worked in the school as a substitue and saw so many things that I did not approve of. It is very sad. I would strongly reccomend looking into other schools. As a family we made some life changing decisions just to get our children out of this school district.

I have 2 children attending this school, and I applaud the teachers and staff for all they do. It's not unusual to find them there til 10pm on weeknights and all day weekends working on curriculum to better educate the children. If parents put in as much time and effort with these kids as the teachers do, society would greatly improve. The administration works hard to raise test scores and educate parents. Sadly, the majority of parents don't attend the many opportunities afforded them by the school. It takes both school and home to educate a child, and the school gives 150%. It's a bigger school than where we moved from, but it's also got a big heart for children.

I have two children attending Clinton Primary as well. Simply put, an overwhelming majority of people working for this school and in the district are just collecting a check and counting the days until they retire. Personally, I am counting the days until I can move and place my children in a better school system. I have had to deal with administration throughout the district for various reasons and each time has truly been one of the most frustrating and unnerving experiences of my entire life. Many jokingly refer to Hope as 'Hopeless.' Sad to say, if this school district were hopeless, it'd be a huge step up from where it sits right now.

I have two children attending Clinton Primary school and I am very displeased with the administration and discipline policies. The safety of these children is at an all time low at this school and no one wants to do anything about it. I am ready to pull my children and move to another school or homeschool them myself.
