Open Quote I have a son that is now in the fourth grade at this school and he is not on target with his reading and comprehension. I have tried to get the school to get my son where he needs to be in reading and comprehension and it seems that they care much more about a piece of paper being signed by me than working with him in reading and comprehension. Now I have to pay an outside source a lot of money to get my son on grade level where the school and all the teachers have failed him. I did speak to the Principle who would like me to come in so he can explain what is expected of me as a parent. I read the student hand book and all the other paperwork that has come home. I KNOW WHAT IS EXPECTED OF ME. Here is what I expect of those of you that my TAX DOLLARS are paying for: Get my son on grade level reading and comprehension. Do not ever tell me again that my child is useless unless medicated. Do not tell me that he will just eventually get it. YOU PEOPLE WENT TO COLLEGE TO TEACH KIDS AND YOU ARE FAILING A LOT OF THEM BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT RESEARCH BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS OR MEDICAL PROBLEMS NOR WORK WITH THE STUDENTS THAT NEED THE MOST HELP. IF YOU ONLY WENT INTO TEACHING TO TEACH THE GIFTED KIDS THEN YOU SHOULD MAYBE NOT BE TEACHING IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. ALL KIDS ARE SPECIAL AND THEY CAN ALL BE TAUGHT IT IS UP TO YOU TO TEACH THEM.

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.
