Open Quote It physically pained me to watch these teachers try so hard for these kids, and only receive insulting swears and violent outbursts in return. And that's only when the entire class isn't outright ignoring their teacher instead. It's not just a few troublesome kids, it's the entire school. Loveworks needs to be closed and the kids transferred to a good special ed program that can help them turn their behavior and test scores around. Close Quote

Open Quote Loveworks stinks! Bad leadership = bad rankings. Pure waste of tax-payer money. The only way to do worse is to convince the kids to not take the tests at all. What a joke. April Harrison and the rest of the administration is laughing all the way to the bank because they get paid a lot (with tax-payer money) to do practically nothing. Look at the results year in and year out! Look at the teacher turn over. Anyone with any desire to truly teach and with any skill leave and with good reason. Why is it still open? How bad do these kids perform when they have to go to a real school? What a sham! Close Quote

Open Quote In response to the citizen's remarks which stated that 73% of the teachers were not licensed. That is absolutely not true and further enhances the fact that you should not believe everything that you hear and that the news definitely has a way of portraying stories in a way that can easily distort reality. The truth of the matter is that during the time of the reports charter schools were permitted BY LAW to hire teachers who had teaching licenses from other states. The teachers were then given an allotted amount of time to fulfill requirements to have their licensed switched to NJ. It was reported that they were not licensed when in fact they were licensed throuh other srares. The teachers who were unfairly judged were experienced and qualified and due to the delusional antics of a disgruntled employee were thrown into a mess. Since you seem to know so much did you miss the report that stated that when the state did an audit in an attempt to find a mishandling of funds that it was found that the state actually owed the school over $250,000 from their own miscalculations? I can not speak to the changes at LoveWorks in the last 5 - 6 years but I do know as someone who worked in the inner circles of the school that it
started out on a very good, justifiable and successful track. Trust me in saying there are many facets to the story that the public has not heard. Close Quote

Open Quote Great idea but poor management. Another contributor wrote that the kids are dysfunctional as if that's some odd occurrence. All kids if they are not disciplined and brought up correctly in the home will be dysfunctional in the class. If the administration had the intestinal fortitude to hold the parents accountable then the children would follow.
There should have been separate and distinct divisions of the school as I believe was the founders wish but not her ability with the staff she hired. The administrators should have been allowed to administer and teachers teach. Then there should have been another component of discipline in the form of a person or persons that demanded that the creeds of the school be upheld at all times. If shirts were to be tucked in then they should have been tucked in at all times. If parents couldn't govern at home, then the child should have been blocked from entering the program. Harsh for the weak at heart but eventually change would have come to fruition.
It's easy to sit back and whine and or complain on a message board but another story altogether when you're on the front line. Close Quote

Open Quote Good Idea - but it doesn't work well here. Scores are poor because they seem to specialize in misbehaving children from dysfunctional families and then do not have the highly skilled staff needed, especially to deal one-on-one. It did not help to have administrators who mismanaged and one this last year who beat kids with a belt.

I listed citizen because I am connected to a family of (former) attendees but am not the parent. I have been to the school a number of times with kids. 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.
