Recent news story said assaults are down..but the assaults on the kids have increased. So perhaps the children are being yelled at, mistreated, etc... Kids crying when they have to go to school is not normal.
There is no homework. When questioned about my child's progress, I am told that what they learn in the academic environment cannot be evaluated outside of the classroom. Isn't learning being able to repeat the process or step? My interpretation is that they are falsifying the results of classroom activities to show that the teachers are making progress..even if the children are not learning. Numbers game.
