My child is pushed away to much. Most of the teachers don't want to help figure out the root of the problem there is not much connection between student and teacher. It seems like if they mess up once they are constantly looked at as a bad person. The assistant principal used those exact words in a conversation with him, telling my son he is a bad kid. What is he supposed to take from that? He has been bullied by some students and he feels bullied by one of his teachers. My son does not want to go to school there anymore. This is one of the worst feelings in the world when your 7th grader wants to quit school, it's sad when a student feels defeated almost every day when he comes home.
