Generally OK. Individual needs aren't always taken into account. generally focuses on students as a whole. expressing personality isn't always acceptable. one standard set for students and one expectation for all students.

Students are held to ONE specific standard for both academic and social growth. Individual personalities are not encouraged nor tolerated in many cases. Elementary and middle school is very discipline focused and most often the only means of dealing with students. Parent or guardian involvement on behalf of students is usually met with additional punishment to students.
