Bakersfield City School District has made great changes tho improve the learning experience for all student. They have helped out the community in many ways, especially those affected by Covid-19. I would like to see a change of having no limitations on student who would like to attend summer school. It’s not fair for those who are up to standard or above standard to be banned from attending summer school.
Many students are falling behind in their studies. They are not given the proper attention or help they require. If the school district gets involved they could look for possible grants, maybe to hire more staff, such as tutors, substitute teachers. All of this could make a vast improvement in the performance of the students who've been failing their classes, while the school district does nothing to make any changes. We need teachers to become more involved. I believe doing this with the school districts help we can make a change for the better.
I liked how involved my teachers were. They were very supportive. I was lucky to have them. They went above and beyond to ensure i learned what needed to be learned. There were a few who stood out amongst all the teachers i had. My 8th grade math teacher who tried and tried to get me to try at school. I didn't do as good as i could've and her interest to encourage me all the time really impacted my motivation later on in life. Teachers like her really bring out the best in you.
