Just how poorly do many Richland 2 students perform on tests for determining whether they are at grade-level in core subjects, such as reading, writing, and math?
Staff shows up at a board meeting with graphs and charts. Local papers hammer Richland 2 and other districts for a day or two. And then the poor test results are "old news".
Richland 2 proclaims "Purpose Driven, Future Ready" on its homepage.
But is it?

Watch this video about a 13-year-old, middle school student in Washington, D.C. who was killed when he attempted to carjack an off-duty detective.
The kid's school people drooled all over themselves about what a nice kid he was. But he wasn't such a "nice kid", when you know about all the other carjackings and crimes he allegedly committed as a 12- and 13-year-old.
Remind you of anyone?
Remember when the principal and staff at Summit Parkway Middle School fell all over themselves after their 14-year-old student was shot as he ran from a convenience store? That was May 26, 2023.
What have you read in the news about where Cyrus got the gun he was carrying? Whose gun was it? How long had he had it? Who knew he had it? How long had he been carrying it?
That's all information that the Richland County Sheriff's Department should know by now. They probably knew it within a week. Has anyone been arrested in regard to that gun?
Where was the gun found? Sheriff Lott said it was found "near the body". That would lead people to think that it might have been on the ground near a hand. Or by an out-stretched arm.
Detectives pretty quickly said they were sure the gun had never been pointed at anyone.
Where was the gun really found?
Why did Cyrus run from the store? We'll never know. He can't tell us. My guess is that he ran because he knew, if deputies showed up and searched him, they'd find the gun on him. So he ran.
When he fell and the gun became visible as he got up, Rick Chow's son reportedly called out to his dad, "He's got a gun."
Should every Richland 2 middle- and high-school student have to watch this 13-minute video?
