I attendend CHS many years ago and learned a great deal. Since then, now that my child attends this school, I have noticed a great change in priorities. The school seems to be more concerned with less important issues, in my opinion, than the issues that should really matter (such as an education). Is it the way the younger generation has evolved? or are the teachers so bogged down with less important issues that they don't have the time to do what they are actually hired to do?

I have noticed that the teachers in Georgia and this school do not give out enough homework. On average, they give out 15 minutes of homework a week! How are our kids supposed to learn their material and do well on tests if they do not receive enough practice before the tests. They do not keep in touch with the parents on a regular basis if my child is doing poorly or just above passing in a subject. I ask for progress reports and only half of the teachers respond. The teachers do only what they have to do and nothing extra to help their students. Regarding the after school sports parents should not have to put in as much out of pocket money as we do to keep the sport teams alive, especially for the girl's teams.
