Open Quote My child has bee isolated in the back of the classroom facing the WALL since the start of this year. The teachers refuse to put him with the rest of the class because they say he is distracting to other students (he is a 10 yr old boy). I have asked he be placed in the front room of the class, they refuse. Had a parent/teacher/councelor meeting where I was told I would receive regular emails regarding how his day went, etc. As of almost 3 months later, I've yet to receive a single one. He is in RTI, my son brought home a letter stating he was making progress and RTI was to be discontinued, a week later, I get a letter in the mail informing me of his possible retention because his grades and skills have not improved! I'm not alleging my son is an angel but he's clearly struggling and the teachers do not know how to deal, their solution is to just NOT deal with him. As a result of his isolation, he is having anxiety and depression. He has no motivation and doesn't even feel like a person because he's not being treated as such. Since he's attended this school (2nd year) I have noticed a marked decline in his overall self-esteem. 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.
