Mr. Davis makes the difference at this school. Teachers are adequate. I understand that teachers have a difficult job but i believe many of the teachers in 'inner city' schools could stand some diversity training. I've never been able to abide people saying that a kid is bad. A behavior may be bad. Calling a kid 'bad' eyes just becomes a self-fulfilling. My kid was called 'Bad', and was expelled from one school after the next but i appreciate Mr. Davis working with him and helping him to complete 8th grade.
After serving over 22 years in the military and moving my kids from school to school, I have found that Parker middle has taken more time to help my child when other so called DOD schools would easily give up. I commend the teachers for the hard work they put into each child, but I do agree with others in the statement of over diciplinary procedures. Yes send a child home if he is volient,direspectful or just down right disruptive..but not for having his/her agenda signed. Parents work hard also and sometimes forget, be more patient and helpful rather than so quick to send a child home to do nothing.
