Open Quote Teachers, administration, and coaches are not interested in getting to know students or athletes unless the child has a parent employed by the school district or the parent has a friend employed by the district or has a well known name in the district. The school district weighs heavy on the "good ol boy" system, politics, and greed. Students are bullied all the time, sometimes even by the adults in the district. Most of them go along with the bullying. They turn their eyes and close their ears to whom they choose based on the politics and money. 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.
