CONSOLIDATING THE ROBESON COUNTY SCHOOLS HAS AND WILL DO OUR CHILDREN AND OUR COMMUNITIES A DISSERVICE. WE ARE SMALL COMMUNITIES THAT MAKE UP A BIG COUNTY. EVERYONE KNOWS EVERYONE, OUR TEACHERS AND FACULTY LIVE IN THE COMMUNITY, WE ALL LOVE OUR COMMUNITY THAT'S WHY WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING THIS CONSOLIDATION PLAN. WHEN WE WERE INFORMED VIA SOCIAL MEDIA OF THE CONSOLIDATION OF CERTAIN SCHOOLS IN ROBESON COUNTY EVERYONE YOUNG AND OLD WAS LETDOWN, ANGRY,  AN IN DISBELIEF, THAT THE PEOPLE WE ENTRUSTED OUR VOTE TO HAD ONCE AGAIN BETRAYED US AND MADE A DECISION FOR OUR CHILDREN WITHOUT COMING TO THE TABLE TO SEE WHAT WE AS A COMMUNITY NEEDED. THE CONSOLIDATION PLAN  SAID OUR BABIES WERE GONNA BE PUT WITH OUR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS AND OUR YOUNG ADULTS WOULD BE SCATTERED WHEREEVER THERE IS ROOM. THE STUDENT TO TEACHER RATIO IS ALREADY 17:1 WHICH IS HIGHER THEN WHAT NORTH CAROLINA AVERAGE IS 16:1. THAT WILL INCREASE AS THE CLASSROOM SIZE INCREASES, ROBESON COUNTY TEST SCORES FOR MATH IS 26% PASSING 47% IS THE STATES AVERAGE, OUR GRADUATION RATE IS 86% AND THE AVERAGE FOR THE STATES IS 88% HOW ARE OUR CHILDREN GRADUATING IF THE TEST SCORE SAY THEY ARE NOT LEARNING. THIS CONSOLIDATION MEANS THE CHILDREN WILL HAVE TO GET UP AT DAWN TO BE BUSSED FROM ONE AREA TO ANOTHER SPENDING MOST OF THEIR TIME COMMUNTING AND NOT LEARNING.IF THE CHILD MISSES THE BUS AND THE PARENTS DON'T DRIVE THE SCHOOL IS TO FAR TO WALK TO WHICH MEANS  THE CHILD IS ABSENT FROM SCHOOL. WE NEED COMMUNITY SCHOOLS IN EVERY COMMUNITY THEY ARE THE PRIDE OF THE COMMUNITY AND THE GEL THAT BRINGS US ALL TOGETHER... OUR COMMUNITY IS IN NEED OF HELP AND POSITIVE CHANGE HOWEVER THIS CONSOLIDATION PLAN  IS NOT IT! LOST OF JOBS OUR TEACHERS AND FACULTY WILL BE FORCED BACK INTO JOB SEACHING AFTER THEY HAVE SACRIFICED AND WORKED SO HARD FOR OUR CHILDREN THAT IS UNEXCEPTABLE. WE AS A COMMUNITY COLLECTIVELY ARE AGAINST THE CONSOLIDATION OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS OF ROBESON COUNTY PLEASE  SIGN OUR PETITION TO STOP THE CONSOLIDATION OF THE ROBESON COUNTY SCHOOLS WE AND  SHARE LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD THANK YOU SO MUCH!

SINCERELY 

THE PARENTS OF ROBESON COUNTY CHILDREN....
