Kankakee School District No. 111 Reviews

Teachers need to have more face-to-face time with students, focusing more on the bonding and learning there in the classroom. Today, the schools are the safest place for children and with some teachers not making it seem friendly the classroom is almost equivalent to their own dangerous household. The intense violence surrounding children today really makes school more like a vacation. While it is rough for teachers dealing with these added concerns, along with extreme budget cuts throughout the state, we must keep the safety and well-being of our children the first priority.

There are a handful of qualified instructors trying to educate students who often do not want to be educated. Although there are not a huge group of violent students, their behaviors make it difficult for everyone else to be a part of the high school experience. The district is primarily made up of lower socio-economic families which makes it way less diverse. The district has a new superintendent who is sincerely trying to make changes and I think she will as time goes on. A new football field, a revamped auditorium and added classrooms should also improve things greatly, but there are some students and evern some parents who are making things very difficult.
The schools within the district are good running schools but when it comes to the administrations, as in the big dogs, things are just on a different level. In my opinion as a student we don’t have much as a say so into our own school system. This is where we spend 12 years (maybe more depending on the person) of our lives at and we’re just moving in line but not creating what we want. Administration want students to be happy and encouraged to come to school but when we’re there at times we’re miserable. I feel students should have access to an open poll for each school to help what goes on. I feel students need interaction.
