Honestly this isn't the staffs responsibility. Their job is to teach the basics. It is the students choice and decision making when it comes to everything else. They need to chose their future. The staff can only do so much. Parents need to be more involved with their children on a daily basis.

Special Education is a joke here. If your child truly needs additional help this is about the worst place you could send them
