Open Quote I can't get in touch with my son's teachers.
He never comes home with homework.
The teachers don't care what the kids do in that school. They just want to collect a paycheck.
They just passing these kids along to the next grade without the skills that they need. 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.
