I'm a mother We'll I'm a mother of two sons who attend Langston Hughes school and my oldest son which is in middle school catch a bus to pick up his siblings after school and the principle treated him poorly. I'm VERY displeased with the principle Ms.Jackson. My son told me she is very nasty to him after she called him lazy he rather walk home and we pick my younger ones up because the principle is very rude to him. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt and request a phone conference but conversation with her was like talking was very distasteful. She is very rude and show aggressive behavior and she work with kids?? she even tried to justify her reason for calling my son lazy. I will be going to the board and removing my boys from this school.
Langston Hughes School is terrible but it could much better with a new principal. Ms.Jackson is so rude to parents and her staff. She talks down to everyone. She allows bullying and she does nothing about kids bullying each other. It's time for a change at Langston Hughes School.
Mrs. Jackson and Ms. Tidwell....please retire already. They are rude and impolite to their own teachers. Mr. Edwards is not assertive enough with the students- he seems clueless. The students in the upper grades are out of control! The administrative team is weak and has no expectation for behavior- the kids even yell at them! they yell in the halls and fight frequently. I would never send my kids to this school. They are inconsistent with guidelines and requirements for the teachers...this in turn falls on the students.
The teacher is working under pressure from the Principal. The staff is good but when the principal come around . The school needs a principal and a new vice principal, toh I almost forgot the staff in the office is unprofessional they say one thing and the broad of education says the right thing.
