Overall, I believe the teachers are doing a wonderful job with the scholars. However, scholars are being kept in detention way to often for minor things. Some scholars receive demerits and have to sever detention just about every day. In addition, on Friday there is no bus service provided for those scholars serving detention to get home safely. This is very dangerous and no one seems to care. Once a child is hurt, it's too late to change the policy. I am also concerned with the very short lunch periods. How can you function properly on an empty stomach? The lunch period is so short that many of the scholars do not get a chance to finish their lunch. Shoving food down your throat after having such a long day in school is really a form of abuse. This is unacceptable and unfair to the children. They should at least have a decent amount of time to finish their meal. Some of the teachers are abusing the demerit tactic. Someone should really think about adjusting some of the policies in the school. I mean, food and safety are very import for children, right?
