Ps 4 Duke Ellington 1

Most people look at this school and assume its a great school because it looks good on the outside. Esthetics isn't what makes a great school. This school is plagued with poor leadership, which trickles down to the teachers and affects our children. The staff misleads parents, and continuously violates parents rights under IDEA. What this school needs is a change in Staff and i am referring too everyone in the upper echelon.

I feel there needs to be more leadership. There seems to be a disregard to the academic performance in this school. Principal seems overwhelmed and not available to parents.
