How very very sad that over 50% aare below grade level. The educational system is now run by progressives who obviously don't knowhow to teach. Just jerks who make jerks of students. When only 70% of students are in the classroom, even the best teachers can't do better and then a bad child takes over the classroom and everyone has to leave until he decides to be better. No discipline allowed. I am not surprised.
