School Reviews

There are entirely too many children in the school for it to be a magnet school. The focus is more on discipline than anything else. They have no control whatsoever. A lot of the teachers need to be evaluated and retested and they need a real principal. I know that it is a tough job and commend those who do it but don't just put a warm body in that spot and think that it is ok. Constantly squeezing 32 kids in the small classrooms and then they can't get what they really need is not good.
