I think the dress code is worthless. Especially when kids are allowed to get away with wearing their clothes way to big. I would rather see the student dress, fitted properly and neat. I also have a problem with no school books. How are the students suppose to be able to learn anything without books.
Faculty level of effort is high, but diminished by weak support from administrators in dealing with classroom disruption. The few students who consider classtime thier socializing time and opportunity to foil teaching processes, are not effectively dealt with by 'support' staff. Little to no effort is given to corrective or preventive strategies to improve classroom behavior. As a result, some few students, not motivated to learn, feel empowered to make class time their play time, often stopping instruction while the teacher deals with off-task behavior. More support to the faculty in consistentlly maintaining a learning environment in the classroom is sorely needed. Responsibiliy for instituting this much-needed change falls squarely on the shoulders of the principal.
