AUGUSTA, Ga.---The yearly progress reports are out on how your child's school is doing.

The Adequate Yearly Progress reports show all 27 Columbia County schools made AYP. 40 of 57 in Richmond County did, but not the high schools, with the exception of the magnet schools. Two schools, Sego and East Augusta Middle school were the only middle schools to make AYP this year.

In Burke County, the three elementary-primary schools made AYP, but the middle and high school did not.

To see how your child's school did, follow the link below to the Georgia Department of Education's website.

    Parents have to play a bigger role in the education that their children receive. The responsibilty can not rest solely on the shoulders of the teachers and the school board. When the children see that their parents care about what they are doing at school and become actively involved they will do better which means the schools will do better. Education starts at home.

    The Richmond County School system are a disgrace. I, after a horrific year at Craig Houghton Elementary School, I decided that enough was enough. Education was could not have been priority at this school because teachers would weekly send home work assignments asking my child to write her spelling words backwards 5 times each to help her learn how the spell them!?!? Come on.......My children were also bullied daily and after many many attempts I finally reached the BOE for a meeting with interim James Thompson. After expressing my concerns, as usual nothing was done. My question is why do parents who are unhappy with Richmond County Schools have to continue to pay taxes in support of Richmond County Schools? There are many BOE employees who make top dollar to do NOTHING!!!! And I mean nothing!!!! Can I use my tax dollars to pay for the tution of the private school I have seclected for my children?

    Note from News 12: we incorrectly reported the number of middle schools that had made AYP in Richmond County. Two middle schools besides the magnet school did make AYP, and they are Sego and East Augusta Middle school.

    I recently moved into Richmond County and had to send my child to Seago Middle School. It was horrible. It was a culture shock to my child who has always been an excellent student. She said she couldn't even concentrate because the kids were so rowdy. She hated going there because she was threatened every day because she made good grades. Fortunately, I was able to get her into a magnet school where she is clearly doing better and much happier. I've never seen the kind of invironment that I saw in Seago before. It was obvious to me that some of the parents of kids at Seago don't expect much of their children. Parents need to be more involved with their children's education. It's the foundation of their future.

    I WISH MORE PARENTS WOULD BE CONCERNED ABOUT CURRENT ISSUES AT HAND. EXPLAIN TO ME WHY ALL OF COLUMBIA COUNTY SCHOOLS CAN PASS AYP YET AND STILL,RICHMOND COUNTY STILL FALLS BEHIND. WHERE DO THE KIDS GO THAT THE PARENTS REALLY DO CARE ABOUT EDUCATION. SOME OF THE SAME TEACHERS START OUT IN THE RICHMOND COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM, THEY TEACH OUR SAME CHILDREN WHO DON'T PASS AYP. THEN SOME OF THOSE TEACHERS MAY TRANSFER TO COLUMBIA COUNTY NOW TEACHING THERE STUDENTS DID THERE MODE OF TEACHING CHANGE? THERE IS A BIG PROBLEM WITH THIS PICTURE. I DO NOT WANT TO HERE ANYMORE ABOUT IT IS THE CHILDREN,... ITS THE PARENTS.... TO ME SOME PART FALLS ON THE TEACHERS AND THERE FOCUS, OBVIOUSLY WITH THOSE SCORES I MUST BE CORRECT CONFUSED AND CONCERNED ANDRAES

    Surprise, Surprise.....Richmond County falls behind again and again. And I don't place all the blame on the educators and schools. The parents of these kids don't care whether their kids are in school or not. They aren't checking the homework, or helping their children study for a test. They aren't going on field trips or helping out in the classrooms. I think the parents ought to be held responsible for the poor test scores. Even the best teacher can't make a child do the work. Parents should be involved with their children's education. It's not just up to the teachers!!!
