The school is a very toxic place. The children there have no sense of empathy and are rude towards others. Little to no disciplinary measures are taken against these acts. The bathrooms are always dirty and lack stall doors. Each teacher has their own form of discipline and seem to shut out school wide rules in general. Many teachers fail to teach my child and leave the children to learn on their own. With this, online schooling (considering the recent circumstances) is almost impossible.

Too many kids, teachers/admin can't keep track of. Students "slip through the cracks". Can't get anyone on telephone or to return any messages. Parents & students are pretty much on their own. If you want to talk to anyone there, you have to go to the school itself. Not bad if you live in area, but for people that are an hour away and have to work, it is impossible. The school doesn't communicate well with parents. My student complains that bathrooms are always dirty and no doors on stalls. School "can't afford" to spend money on things like new books or desks, but can spend away when it comes to football (and only football) even though they haven't won a single game in years. Can't speak on other sports other than they only spend money on football program. I'm not against football, but I think academics should come first, then sports programs . . . and all sports programs should be treated equally.

While students are enjoying time off this summer, school district officials across the country are grappling with the issues associated with Common Core Standards, as well as plenty of opposition from parents and teachers.
As more schools return to in-person learning, teachers and parents find themselves dealing with the trauma and stress created by the pandemic.
After more than a year of remote learning, schools are finally returning to in-person instruction but how has the pandemic changed the face of public education and what will it look like moving forward?
