Berea Community Middle School3

This school and its independent district is a bundle of unfulfilled potential. It is a K-12 entity in a progressive community, with wonderful caring staff. But it is stifled by state 'accountability' programs that waste energy, dulled by a group of families that don't give a rip about education (a product of KY culture), and unwilling to cast off the NEA, stale educational methods, on-size-fits-all techniques. This could be great school if it would stop trying act like other public schools, tell the State to take a hike, and live up to its visionary charter. In fact it should become a charter school and pursue excellence using it's strengths and innovation solely under accountability to its parent base.
