High Point Student Government Pres slams Hite, BOE, and Admin over campus security

Sheena Patel is the President of the High Point Student Government Association.

It’s about damn time that our politicians are coming to realize security & administration is the most important thing to worry about. A building full of 13-18 year olds is not supposed to be dangerous. A school is not supposed to be dangerous. Food fights should not turn into riots with 300+ students, never the less occur at all! Where was our security? Sleeping in the hallways like they always do? Or talking to random students like they always do? Where was our administration? And you wonder why students drop out of school. Who would want to go to a place to be “educated” that is no longer a school, but a zoo. And when the students complain about security not doing their job, WHY doesn’t anyone believe us! This is ridiculous!!!

By the way, every student at High Point has credibility to speak on this issue, because throughout the year..we have all witnessed something that should never happen in any school. Being the student government president, the 42 students in my organization and me have previously already tried to speak to administration about how security is falling behind in doing their job. We have done what we can. We have tried many times. However, every time we raise our voices…the only replies we get are ..”well what privileges can we take away? How can we get students to do this? To do that? If we go on a no-pass policy, they’ll HAVE to stay in class, if we have hall sweeps, they’ll HAVE to go to detention.” Honestly? We’re teenagers and there’s a point where we rebel. We know security doesn’t really care as much as they should. So why would my peers not fight? They’ve never gotten in trouble for it before. It’s nothing new. So instead of our administration focusing on what to take away with us, they need to focus on themselves. On how to do their jobs and how to keep us safe. Because ultimately it IS about the STUDENTS & everyone needs to stop forgetting that!

Our administration absolutely agrees on matter with the student government, but every single time we try to give advice about administration or security, we get shut down! There really is no point of student government anymore! No one listens anymore! Because it’s all about politics! I just recently went to a school board meeting, it was all politics. I just recently went to the 2011 MD inaugural with Governor O’Malley and Lt. Governor Brown, it was all politics. TWO DAYS before this nonsense, SUPERINTENDENT Dr. Hire was at High Point!!! For a county SGA meeting, it was all politics! When the hell does education and safety come into the picture! Stop thinking like politicians and start treating us as if we were your own children! Cut the act!

  1. I personally believe the President has a point. I’m not the only person who listens to teachers out of High Point hearing about how bad Mr. Brooks is, running in is office and what not. But, I don’t blame him. I wouldn’t know what to do either if I had to work in this catastrophic environment. I’d run back to my office and lock the doors too.

  3. Slander is a powerful thing in court….Keep posting information that is incorrect……Instead of blaming the principal you need to blame the parents for the ineffectiveness of raising their own children….

  4. I’m proud of you for fighting for your rights and for exposing the situation. Dr. Hite is not a good strong leader. He only cares about his wallet. Never surrender for what is right.
