    "How this principal entered his position in this school is laughable. He is not responsive and is quite frankly a poor leader. Unfortunately 'principals' do not serve terms such as 'presidents' - otherwise a new principal would certainly be well appreciated. One who is strong and hands-on and simply CARES. This I believe, would be a strong factor that would generate down to the uncaring staff."

    "We have a handful of good teachers but a lot of really poor ones. Our principal is a poor leader. The students, staff and parents have no respect for him. He and the District care little about the individual students, only about the numbers and reputation of the school."
