Parents Camp Out in Union County
By: Yaremi Farinas
On Monday more than 60 parents from Union County waited in line to select their child's future school teacher.
Some parents camped out during the weekend to be the first to pick a teacher.
We spoke to a parent who believes the teacher request system isn't fair. He told us some classes have more boys than girls and students who need the most attention are often put in the same class.
Union County Superintendent Carlton Faulk said there are only so many spots in each class that can be requested.
"We take the rest of the class and make sure we got high, medium and low level kids and we meet the requirement of sub-groups, so it works out pretty well for us," said Faulk.
He told us he does not encourage parents to camp out, they do that on their own. He said he is not planning on changing the teacher request system.
