Teachers and non- teaching staff are always ready to help. Great
Staff should get to know even the baddest students. The staff should behave professionally as role models. The principal has been an important part in the school's possible success. They should promote fun group activities in the classroom. Stop the every hour violence. Teachers should show care towards all students. As hard as that is, they should go through a worthy process of helping the scholars. Behavior is a big problem. Many of the "bad" kids are smart but don't show it due to behavior and the behavioral consequences. The whole point of school is to make every single one of those valued children successful in life. Just because a child has emotional problems, doesn't mean you treat them like dirt. Why does the staff condone 11 year olds fighting over boys or the type of shoes they wear. There should be activities that bring out the beauty in everyone. Schools like this has caused people to go to military charter schools. If public schools would do their duty of having a SAFE, and fun, learning environment, creating a peaceful and happy place for children to get their education, there wouldn't be a need for over the top, judgmental charter schools
It would be better if Spanish speakers were allowed to use any language they want. If a fight breaks, it should be stopped immediately. A staff member shouldn't just sit there and watch for a few minutes then start separating the children. More than half of the students have no motivation or mentors to lead them to success. Regardless of what a child does you never bring their confidence down as if they're worth nothing. Students should practice partner and group sharing of their ideas and opinions. A staff member shouldn't support bullying or peers judging each other.
