Junior High School 234 Arthur W Cunningham Reviews
For the sake of full disclosure, I am not a parent. I am a family friend, taxpayer, and wife of a veteran NYC educator, and I am concerned about the deteriorating quality of our schools. This school employs and supports incompetent, inappropriate teachers who are clearly disillusioned with their profession; not all, but enough of them to discourage a student previously assessed as gifted, perceptive, respectful, helpful, diligent, and eager to learn. Repeatedly penalized, academically and personally, for asking basic classroom questions - episodes confirmed by the teachers themselves. Parental involvement to achieve resolution actively discouraged by administrators, as well as teachers. Shameful.
