Open Quote Farney Elementary, is below average because of the following reasons observed by ten different parents from various cultural background, and former students who requested to be transferred to a different school.

Teacher's staff, should reflex the student body and become more culturally diverse and attend training to understand various cultural background which they serve.

1)Teachers, should receive various workshop:CREATIVE Teaching Outside the Box,
implementing creative projects as part of their lesson plans monthly. This will allow students to receive hands-on training/ in all of the main subjects: science, math, language arts, and reading.

2) Teacher-Student ratio should be smaller (1:15) not (1:20+)students
per class.

Teacher's, receive evalulation by parents and the student body which limits the freedom and flexibility of personal attitude and issues being brought into the classroom.

Teacher's, should attend workshops involving Conflict Resolution, Anger Management and Ethnics as apart of continuing education on an annual term.

************* Student's Outcome = SUCCESS........ 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.
