Ralph Akins school. Well this is how my son first full week in TN public school went. I had talked to the teacher about not using corporal punishment on my child and that I was going to turn in a note stating that they could not use corporal punishment on my child. The teacher said OK, but the next day he came home and told me that he got in trouble at school and the teacher took him out side in the hall way and slapped his hands. I was mad but I really wasn't sure if he was telling the truth well a couple of day later I went to the school to have lunch with him and I had multiple students come up to me and tell me that he had been taken out into the hallway and while they were out off class they heard smacking sounds and when they returned my son was crying. I asked the principle about this and she said that five year olds lie. I called the board of education and the director told me that I can t be going around and accusing a teacher of striking my child. I just would like to know why they haven't looked up the video footage from the cameras.

My daughter has gone to Ralph Askins from Pre-k through 3rd and I think it is the best school in the city! Mr. Joel Hastings has really been an incredible addition to an already wonderful school. Individual attention is a priority and the teachers are very caring and loving. It does need some activities like maybe basketball but the fundraisers ore great and the staff really love to be with kids. The music and art programs are excellent. I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
