Then they question why they're in poverty. How about fucking learn so you can get into college and leave.

people should start working at 14 years of age after school. Whether this cleaning, picking potatoes, what ever!! Then they would be too tired to fight! Also, if you fight, you should be kicked out of school. The problem with american schools is that they are too big. They do it to save money, i.e. economy of size. If you want a big school, separate the school into parts.

yeah theses poor black schools are bad but every mass shootings where 5 or more are killed happen in white middle class schools go figure
Reece Phillips (4 days ago)
You need to find out the reasons these kids bully eachother and deal with it. Separating them is not a fix. Correct the issue. I have so much respect for the teachers and the principle at this school. And most of all for the kids that are going there and just trying to get a education. We need more officers and guards in these schools. Sadly the teachers need to be trained how to protect themselves and the other students.

The kid that had his clothes in a bag truly had me in tears. So young but very strong in the mind and heart. While other kids who are spoiled and take everything to granted don't want to learn... The world we live in can never be fixed. Just helped

So when i was in kg (kindergarten) class and i was in a school and every time i do something wrong 2 times in a row i would be locked in the storage area or get hit 3 times on both hands with a huge wooden ruler or stand still with your hands in the air for 5 minutes that feels like an hour but once those happened all at the same time and my mother demanded them to end school early because of the punishments so fast forward to when i was 9 my mom was driving past my school because it was close to our house and it had a new name and wasn't even a school anymore .-.

If you look closely at 2:01 You can see that they are in JROTC and aiming to go into the military. Yet people still look down on all of them because of their school's reputation.
gerry12250 (8 days ago)
If 1 out of 70 shows up only for parents night well that explains why that school is so bad. Anyone bullied should be expelled. Case close. Kick them out of school
😢😢😓wow.. I've never even heard of this school... what makes it dangerous? The students or the area..I bet they're highly educated. I do mean highly educated. Wow. This broke my damn heart. That girl is so tall. Omg. Teacher? Wow. Omg.. why haven't we ever heard about this school. They all smiled when she said, "she loves them."

I truly believe the problems in the black communities are bc the culture was destroyed by infiltrators of the government years ago. Same with all poor communities only now they are targeting poor whites more often by introducing METH and taking the jobs out of their areas. They have been destroying all of us that aren't part of the upper class from the inside out starting with the family structure then the jobs leave, they introduce drugs so they can do further damage by incarcerating people (especially the father figures) for being addicted bc of despair and if they aren't addicted typically they are jailed for trying to step up by selling. We all need to open our eyes and stick together instead of letting them divide us poor people with their agendas.
