This is coming from a student who needed help when he was in school. You have many teachers here who are supportive of all their students and who want them to succeed like Mr. Little, Mr. Egan, Mr Parkhill, Ms Hoffman. They want ALL their students to succeed and be respectable members of society. However there are a few teachers here who fail the students. I can understand you cant help every child be the next doctor or lawyer, but there are staff members who spend all their time nurturing the good ones, and leave the rest to fend for themselves. I know from firsthand experience due to some teachers having to discipline and have talks with me. I can understand a disrespectful student causing problems in your class. However ask why there are some teachers who never have this problem. I think that if a person spends all their time working around young adults they should learn to not be so offended by them. Overall school system needs to change. Rating is for the good teachers. Principals give speeches and stuff but its the teachers who make the school.
