Manuel F. Cunha Intermediate School Reviews
The student body here is amazingly unrestrained and disrespectful. On a recent trip to Washington D.C., the chaperones and teachers allowed students to roam freely through the halls, and ignored the obscenities and offensive comments that a majority of the students yelled to total strangers. Whether this is a result of the teachers or not, I'm unable to say, but the present authority figures put more effort into restricting the actions of other hotel guests than to keep their students even remotely respectful. At least where I come from, the typical chaperone or teacher should intervene when students: repeatedly run up and down the halls, on different floors, opening and slamming doors; tell other hotel guests that they aren't very attractive; complain that certain groups of people are on their same floor; yell "SHUT UP" whenever hotel guests open their doors; or tell strangers that they should (action) their (opposite sex's genitals).
