TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Parents are voicing their concerns about the conditions of some Tuscaloosa County schools. Quite a few parents whose children attend Matthews Elementary School and Collins-Riverside Middle School have complained about what they call poor conditions at both schools.
Both school buildings are some of the oldest in the school district. Parents site A.C. problems, sewage issues, litter piles and hanging window screens at Collins-Riverside and more.
Superintendent Dr. Walter Davie said many of the district school buildings are older and they do their best to fix maintenance issues right away. However parents question why more isn't being done to find permanent solutions now.
"But it's not being kept up. As far as repairs I'm afraid it might be beyond putting a patch her and there," We feel systematically unheard, we feel like our voice is not important and we don't feel like they are speaking for our children," said Cheyenne Martin whose child goes to Collins-Riverside.
