Open Quote The teachers do care about the kids and try to teach students who have terrible parents and home lives. The parents blame the teachers for behaviors that should have been addressed at home (manners, respect). As a student, I hate that so many of my fellow students are just plain ghetto and they only go to school so they can score their drugs, hang out with their friends, and find their next hook up.

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.
