School is fine and the teachers are great but then we come to the weak link the registered Democrat. They have as a principal joy is bell is everything you have come to expect from a Democrat lies hypocrisy dishonesty a lack of morals and of course a big smile and a position to guide the lack of integrity think I'm wrong have a look at the turnover rate of teachers.
