Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective
August 24, 2015
The teachers allow disrespectful students to curse and interrupt learning time. How can you reach the students who want to learn if you don't control the flow of your class? Exactly you can't.

They may try, however respect starts at home. The children aren't being raised properly, so it's impossible for the school to do anything.

Develops empathy: Strongly disagree

No, when this school redeveloped the building, they should have redeveloped their approach on how to develop their students.

It's impossible when the staff is afraid of the children. I can say for the returning students who are active in their activities, maybe. Otherwise, no.
