The school system shows favoritism to certain sports and certain schools and certain sports. Some of the teachers do not know how to control their students or teach.Most of the kids move to the surrounding counties or just become home schooled because of some of the stuff the school. They show favoritism towards basketball , track and football. They don’t show sports like baseball, soccer , golf or tennis love. They closed down Albany High school because they say they didn’t have enough money to keep it open , but is spending millions of dollars on renovating other schools and creating a academy. This forced more than 550 kids to attend a new school even upcoming seniors.
Dougherty County Schools have several great schools to attend, but there are some Pro's and Con's that could be fixed. When it come to pro's education wise help is provided and explained smoothly. Some teachers are nice and are there to help when needed. Getting to class run smoothly with less altercations. As for con's some teachers are very imature and mean which is a bad look for the school. They bully some student withoit knowing what their going through. Overall with fixing that problem and communicating more it can easily be fixed.
