    Pros

    Relaxed environment Opportunity to help students who really need it Turn around school pay

    Not much on boarding instruction Most teachers do not have school pride Students are not proud of school

    Implement a more strict phone policy and support grading and discipline decisions teachers make rather than always taking the students side. Also, there are many times when security is called and does not show up to remove a student
