Open Quote bad school bullying is allowed. A horrible principal non experienced teachers Close Quote

Open Quote Shame on you for suspending Nathan Pemberton for standing up and fighting back in self defense against his bully, while you refused to do anything to stop it!!!! Quit being so politically correct and use some common sense with this stuff! How would you feel if this were to take on an adult version and you were confronted? Would you lay down and take the punches or defend yourself, irregardless of the 'rules' and consequences? Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
