  • teachers dont care about anything or anyone when they leave their class rooms hall ways and bus lines are fair game for harrasement and even violence one student to another at one point i know a student was beaten by six other students in the bathroom walkway .in this case there was no witness that would talk so there was punishment to anyone but the leader.
