I have been a visitor to this area many times in the past. I attended awards and graduations and was amazed and proud of Olive Public Schools and their students as the respect among all students and staff was very apparent. It has only been in the last year or so that I have noticed a change. It seems that now the students run the school and are "always right". For the most part, teachers are shown no respect from the students. I pray that this is just temporary, and that the teachers and staff once again will be able to do their jobs with the respect that should be given them from the students. If these students are an example of our future leaders, what does our future look like? What does their future look like? I still feel there is hope, but change must be forthcoming soon.
