Open Quote When a teacher like Mrs. Swisher, fifth grade, chooses Tupac Shakur as a role model for her class for Black History Month and puts a picture of him wearing the red bandana (a sign of the gang he represented) on her class room door I have to question her and the principals judgement. Even though he was a good artist he was a gang member that objectified women by calling them bhes and wh++es and was shot down in the streets by rival gang members. Is this a teacher you want teaching your children? A teacher that threatens her students with "what goes on in my class room stays in my class room". What is she trying to hide? If she were a man would parents worry more about this kind of behavior around children? Also her class room is a fire hazard with no clear way for children to escape in an emergency. 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.
