FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The situation in Ferguson has the residents living among scenes that resemble a movie, not the town they knew.

Sherica Curry’s 9-year-old son Ryan is a straight A student who has perfect attendance but, because of the situation in Ferguson, has been unable to go to school.

“I’m trying to get back to doing math and science and getting all my A’s,” Ryan said.

Ryan could not wait to show News 4’s Chris Nagus the laptop he received because he received all A’s and had perfect attendance.

Ryan wants to be a police officer when he grows up because he wants to “protect and serve.”

The violence in Ferguson has forced three school districts to cancel classes. It has also forced the Ferguson-Florissant district to move the first day of school to Monday, August 25, more than a week after school was originally scheduled to begin.
