In the Sullivan County School District, the schools are full of loving and hardworking teachers, but the school system is highly dysfunctional. In the process of consolidating schools, they have wasted money by not properly vetting the land they bought. Also, they were in a deficit due to a fight with the commissioners, which almost shut schools down.
Sullivan County Schools have been very good to me over the past four years. From my educational experience to my social experience, I could not have picked a better school to be a part of. When walking through the halls there is a feeling of unison, a feeling a family, something I will never forget. The staff, as well as the students, are some of the best around.
However Sullivan County Schools do have their downfalls. For example, the very low budget makes it harder for our schools to get funding for more expensive educational opportunities. Also, there is an abundance of students that enjoy smoking in the bathrooms, making the entire hall smell like smoke. Lastly, there is so much standardized testing that it makes it difficult to go in depth with topics because they are too concerned about covering all test material. While this school system has its negatives, they are definitely outweighed by positives, and I will always be proud to have gone through this system.
