The teachers are not experienced enough to handle the students, especially children with issues like ADD or ADHD. They constantly berate the students by telling how bad they are.

The teachers from the Duval County Charter School need to be under investigation they are not communicating with their students about their progress in school if they don't feel the need to talk to the students or the students' parents I personal don't think they are qualified for the teaching job.I hope somebody investigate them thoroughly and they are very lucky I didn't call the School Board on them for lack of communication with students or parents.The Duval County Charter School need to be careful who they hire as teacher they don't want to have bad reputation.
