I feel the teachers are perfectly fine especially in the conditions in which they work. They do their job the best they can with what they are supplied with. They may be a little harsh but with kids fighting everyday and constant outbursts they have to be strict and punctilious in order for there to be any foundation. The ethnicity at Stonewall is dangerous especially in a hood rat neighborhood where the boys are being born into a life of crime and drugs where as the girls are being born into a life of dealing with deadbeat spouses. So no the teachers are fine its the parents who refuse to set boundaries for their children and the children who create such a violent atmosphere that makes Stonewall Jackson another dead end for potential

I like Stonewall Jackson Middle School alot, except some teachers really shouldn't have a job here, much less a license. There are good kids, and a good school altogether, but they should really reconsider certain teachers.
