I go to Vallejo High, there are few teachers whom are way too good for this job, and yet the school district is letting them go. As a student here, I find it hard to feel safe, yet there are teachers I can confide in, they are leaving; what will I do when they are gone? The teachers are getting bashed because they don't pass all their students; seriously? If you are given a student with a 7th grade reading level, they are now in the 11th grade, and you bring it up to a 9th grade by the end of the year, should you pass them? No, they haven't met the standards for that year. Same goes for students who don't do work, then complain about the teachers failing them. Uhh... If you don't do the work, how do you expect to pass??? Sure, there are some good students, but when I go to school, I don't enjoy being the victim of second hand smoke because the campus supervisors don't do their job correctly. They need to remove those students and keep the good teachers, get rid of the people who really don't improve the school. Oh, don't think about talking to the district, they won't listen. They don't care, they just are there for the money, not improving school and the students education.
