Open Quote Hello Everyone, my child attends Jonas Salk Elementy. Yesterday my son says a girl back hand slapped him during recess. Several of her friends circled him screaming you bet not hit her back. One of the recess monitors saw what happened and asked him do you want to me do something about this? My son says no out of fear and the little girl and group continues to play undisciplined. Why was it left to my child to make this decision? Why are some adults not taking things like this seriously. I have complained about the bullying for 2 years. My son has been kicked, kicked in his privates, slapped, and spit on with no resolution. Has anyone had this same experience? Thank you for reading.

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.
