There are some TRUE supporters of Booker T. Washington High School who would like to officially oppose the negative petition being circulated on the following grounds:
Many of the people who have signed the negative petition have never met the current administration
The list of complaints on the negative petition are not grounded in fact, but rather perception
Our group of POSITIVE supporters have heard many POSITIVE stories about the current administration and wish to highlight the positive and HELP in the areas that need help.
Finally, it's time for OUR people to stop putting OUR own people down.

Artyste Ueal, United States4 years ago Comments: I am a proud graduate of the 2009 class of Booker T. Washington High School, I know for a fact the good that goes on in the school and the love that the administration has for its students. A blind man could look at the relationships and bonds shared between the faculty, staff, and student body and only see pure love. BTW continues to raise despite of the circumstances of which the neighbor and surrounding community uphold. I lived in Foote Homes which is directly across from BTW, and it was my scapegoat to get away from the negative mess that is tried to be protrayed upon the school. I remember thinking when I first transfered there that I was a going to a school of low expectations and that i would be able to slide by easily, but by the end of my first week there, I changed my mind.
JaQuisha Gray, United States4 years ago Comments: I personally feel that this negative petition is just a way to keep the good that happens at Booker T. Washington silenced. I attended BTW all four years and I received a more than adequate education. Booker T. washington taught me everything I know and I am proud to be a Washingtonian.
June Fleming, United States4 years ago Comments: I have been at BTW since 2004, at that time Ms Bailey was there. I was there when Ms Kiner became Principal. I must admitt I have not agreed with everthing, but I can see a lot of improving. We all know everything you start with is a slow process, but become great. I have seen connections, impovement in grades and excitement throughout the school, We must get with her and do all we can to see success of our students continue to progrss. Put a young white person in there and we will all support and will not say anything negative no matter what is done, but we have to walk all over our own, lets not kick a person down, lets lift her up and fight for the proud standards of BTW.
