    Some teachers in the high school do not care about the students. Some are totally way advanced meaning they are teaching at a college level and suggesting to the students that this is the worst class he has in 20 years of teaching. Telling his students half of the class is failing. More often than not the teachers need to be looked at by the supt. of school. Maybe he should sit in on a class room and see if the teachers are doing all they can to help every student. I attend every parent teacher conference and get some good feedback from teachers in areas to improve my childs education others dont seem to care. I have sent 2 through the system already and 2 to go.
