I've never been so happy and excited that my son is on his way out. Although there are several excellent teachers who have really helped and support him, the principal (as has been spoken of in the past) avoids any possible conflict if a parent has a question or concern. As an educator and adult, why would you avoid me as a parent of a student? Isn't that counterproductive? You will get the basic generic answer, which is probably why so many parents do not bother to say anything. Might it be the socioeconomic situation of the parents? Maybe those from lesser means or not as articulate, or perhaps just don't give a crap about their kids -- could that be it? While they impress upon the minds of the parents to speak up, attend the bogus "Coffee with the Principal", etc... you will not get any support if you do, especially if it goes against their line of thinking. But I shouldn't stop at RKA, I would guess the Dept of Education is what promotes that, so of course, as in any business, as long as the person is running it, able to sweep the dead bodies to the side, and make everything appear okay, then we'll take it! Not really sure that I would recommend this school. The only way for success is for a parent to be an active participant.
