School Reviews

  • Recommended October 31, 2011 - For the last 5 years I have had issues with the students when school is out. They continue to walk on my fencing and remove bricks and throw them on the sidewalk or street. I have tried asking them politely to stay off my fencing and yard but all I get is foul mouths and threats. I have sent e-mails & complained to the school and the district every year but nothing has yet to change. I am not the only one that has had problems with the students. The kids have broken landscape lighting, side mirrors off of vehicles, leave trash and trespass. I live 2 houses from cypress & M but never see anyone from the staff around. Something MUST be done. ASAP!! - Posted by Parent

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
