    Brownsville, KY is a very small town. There's no red lights. Everyone attends church and if you don't show, you're the main topic for the next 2 days. Everyone knows who you are, they know your background. The people here are extremely friendly and most would give you the shirts off their backs. I didn't really care for my education I received in the Edmonson County High School. The teachers were more there for themselves or for those students with the special last names. I never really had to study to get good grades. I never could write according to one teacher. I learned the basics and watched several other kids get pushed through the system. Most people that I was in school with left this town and became teachers or winded up in jail. I'd really like to see the educational system change. Teachers should encourage kids to become something instead of staying at their poverty state and never changing.
