Of the faculty and staff I have met here, only half seem to be genuinely concerned for the wellbeing of the children. The other half, of whom I've met so far, seem more concerned with politics and personal agendas. I have received everything from empathy to an outright tongue-lashing by the head principal, with the AP standing right behind him in support of his behavior. Some faculty members seem to want to help and share information but are possibly too afraid to speak up for fear of retaliation for being a whistle blower. One thing is for sure, if your child attends this school especially, be involved and make sure the faculty, staff, and administrators see your face OFTEN and ASK QUESTIONS. The child without an advocate is the child that gets cheated and neglected. Unfortunately, that goes for most public schools in America these days.
