Children receive only 15 minutes for lunch which includes walk to and from cafeteria and tray pick up. Teachers receive no lunch breaks. My student is told they can't go to the bathroom because it takes away from educational time. Also school work is two grade levels higher than my students grade level appropriate abilities. I am told this inspires my child to strive higher but my student is just very frustrated. Also many teachers have mysteriously resigned with no preparation or transition for my child. I am at least grateful that by week two my child finally had a desk. I'll be pulling my child if things don't improve.
