Ringgold, setting high standards for lowering the bar on student education. Glad to see they have their priorities in the right place.
Dolly Parton and her husband as well as George Jones and Tammy Wynette were married in Ringgold, GA.
The city has traditionally been a "marriage center" because of the short waiting time after blood tests; one testing laboratory in the community offers a combination test/wedding package and sells clocks with the inscription "I got married in Ringgold, Ga." (If this gives you an idea about the quality of the people).
This town literally is HELL! The town (as a whole) is stuck in the mindset of 1865 where racism and discrimination and anyone who thinks "outside of the box" is frowned upon.
There is also an abundance of teen pregnancies in Ringgold. Rumor has it that it is something 'in the water' so don't drink it if you don't want to become fertile Myrtle.
There is no diversity, with a staggering 91% Caucasian (of the town) and 96% Caucasian at the high school.
A lot of the people who graduate from Ringgold High School do not go to college and stay around town for the rest of their lives. I know Ringgold is not appealing so they must be sucked into some kind of Ringgold vortex.
Also, there is a massive amount of rednecks/country people at the high school and around town. Dip, cowboy boots, and Dixie Outfitters tee shirts pretty much sums up this town and high school.
Reply: Bitch you better make sure you do everything you can to not come here.
"Moving to Ringgold is a death sentence."
"I am pregnant!"
Reply: "Stupid bitch! You are only 13!!! You must have drunk the water!"
In recent years, Ringgold has tried to market itself as a place of historic significance, in the hopes of feeding off some of Chattanooga's success in the tourism business. This has been a complete failure.
Ringgold is full of Evangelical Christians, homophobia, and teen pregnancy. People who claims not to see this are lying to themselves. Ringgold is like a vortex, even if you think you've finally escaped, it just sucks you right back in.
No one who lives outside of Ringgold knows what the hell it is.
Person no. 2: Good luck with that. You'll be back here sharing our misery son enough.

Guy 2: Pretty good, been having a good time.
