In 1975, I attended 5th grade as Edward W. Jackson. Homeroom, was Mrs. Myers. I was beaten with a huge wooden paddle, by the principle of the day, because I would not admit that I called a little girl the "N" word! I only hope, that this teacher, and this principal, are no longer in charge of children anymore. They stank! As for the school, in 1975. It was not a bad place, except for those two. I never forgot my mistreatment in 1975. And, I can only hope that the students today, will have better treatment by the sucessors of this school. My mother used to volunteer in the library, at the time. My father was stationed at Shaw AFB. We moved on to Florida, afterwords. I am still rankled, at the horrible treatment, I had at the hands of Mrs. Myers, who was a terrible role model for children. Her favorate saying, was "Oh, Really!" with a limp wrist. Trying, and failing to act like a "Southern Belle!" Shame on you, Mrs. Myers! And, shame on the "board of education!" For the three licks, I received that day, did not damp my resolve, for the day, corporal punishment was banned, from the hands of administrators, who abused it!
