    ---I am a teacher at Estacado--- Students are being mollycoddled and pampered to a disturbing degree. Teachers will intentionally lower their standards give them easy grades and will even edit their grades in order to have them pass; mostly because the school administrators are concerned with getting and keeping grants and monies instead of concern for the students. They lower their teaching to an disturbingly low/easy standard so that students are not challenged or learning anything too "tough." Some creativity and ingenuity are suppressed in order to make scores and the school look better. While none of this is illegal it is very unfortunate. This is not to say that there are good things about Estacado. The staff and teachers are very loving and socially supportive of their students. We have very good connections with our students and will often support them and go to extraordinary lenghts to help our wonderful students. I know that I personally will make myself available and able to help and care for them. The academics and level of learning may at times be lacking but our connection to our students is second to none.
