Open Quote The school is having a serious problem with headlice and the school refuses to check the kids once a month. I am going to the school board meeting to see if I can get things done to keep the problem under control. Good Morning America has made a statements that it is in all schools but Benton doesnt seem to want to take any necessary measures to control the problem. They only check grades PK-4. 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.
