As a former student, I'm in agreement that the environment is horrible. The students are much akin to a mob; subjecting each other to suffering in an unimaginable way. Few of my fellow students at all ever showed any sort of initiative, interest, or action, that is, aside from the ridiculous displays alluded to (discrimination within classes, fights, etc. being prime among them.) The students, are without a doubt, a motley lot. That is to say nothing of the teachers, though, who suffered far worse than some gawky white kid who went a few years back. The teachers are easily mistreated, disrespected, and taken for granted, merely ignored on most occasions, though. These are guys who deserve so much more, having shown a love for what they do, if not a general interest. My heart goes out to men like Mr. Olushegun, Layne, and Bedford who work in this veritable Hell.
