Review of Georgetown, Kentucky

Georgetown/Scott County weak on educational needs
Star Rating - 11/24/2012
I was reading what was posted for Georgetown on it's cost of living and educational assets. My children all go to school in Scott County and I thought it should be clarified that the teacher student ration is not "16 students for 1 teacher", that is simply not true. My elementary age children both have over 33 in their class and have one teacher and no assistant. My middle school age child has 29 students and ONE teacher. My High School child shares his ONE teacher per class with a minimum of 31 other students. The children are not challenged at any age level and it appears that we so many GREAT numbers at the state level because the kids are given "extra credit" points up to 10 points for simply turning an assignment in on time! If you are moving to this area based on what the educational system offers, please check a little further than this website or be prepared to offer your children home school at night in addition to the little they get during the day.
