      Just because one student does something wrong doesn’t mean the whole school is bad. There are a lot of bad kid here but there are just as many good students and we shouldn’t be judged on the fact that one student made a mistake. That’s not cool nor fair to the students here, and if you don’t already know that, you don’t know our school. Butler has changed a lot from when i first got here. Don’t be so quick to judge something you don’t know ANYTHING about.

    There are a number of factors that contribute to the corruption of Butler high. As a student I’ve seen both students and teachers not doing their job and slacking. Its a two way street when it comes to why butler is the way it is. A new location won’t fix anything. Nor will closing the school. It’ll have the same effect as when westlawn and stone merged

      Where in the Constitution does it say that your 2nd amendments rights start at a certain age? He thought that the NRA was protecting his Constitutional rights. After all, the NRA protects the unfettered access to guns even for thugs!
