Slauson Intermediate School 1

Slauson Intermediate school allows students to be bullied. My nephew was bullied all year in 2013 through 2014. His parent went to the school to address the bullying and they just swept it under the rug. Some of the teaches talk bad to the children and call the students name. No student entering middle school for the first time, should not have to endure this type of trauma. Safety is not important in this school when the parent rights booklet says they do not tolerate bullying.

Instead of finding ways to help students to meet grade level standards (i.e. tutoring programs, Saturday school, parent involvement programs, etc.), the 6th grade teachers lowered the standards and then give A's and B's out. How a 7th grade student reading at 3.0 grade level earns an A in reading is beyond me.

I LOVE the Zap program. To the parent complaining about this claiming she is going to have a petition to end the program, how about you try this: GET YOUR CHILD TO DO HIS HOMEWORK!!!. Lazy parenting = Lazy kids. What is horrific is that you are not teaching your child responsibility and are teaching him that it is okay to be lazy. No ONE EVER in the real world uses red pen to submit work. EVER. And your petition is a joke. The state of California Education code permits teachers and schools to hold students after school up to one hour. So how about you get to work on checking your child's homework and stop babying him? BTW, my child was zapped ONCE and he NEVER got zapped again. He learned his lesson because on top of the zapping he was grounded for 6 weeks by me. Guess what though? He's got a 4.0 now. Thank you, Slauson for being strict, efficient and MAKING my child responsible.

This school has a Zap program but I am unsure if it is the mean homeroom teacher my child has but she is out of control holding more than 60 kids the first couple of weeks until the principal told her to slow it down! Now since I complained about her wanting the children to be totally perfect which is impossible because we are human, she has targeted my child. I will be getting a petition out for the rest of the parents to sign on the cruelty of this program and having the teachers be given too much power. Research says that teaching through punishment is not effective and has bad effects in the long run. My child now hates school and there needs to be a limit to this zapping. One problem wrong or two and also because he used red pen!!! This is horrific!

Slauson was one of the best times of my life! I had great teachers and I also played sports making my experience there more memorable. I graduated from Slauson in '99 so unfortunately some excellent teachers have already retired but there are many who are still there that are great teachers as well.
