The Lynn Public School District does it's best with the limited resources that it has, but due to the fact that Lynn Public Schools are widely known for having a large immigrant population and limited funding, the schools are often crowded and teachers are stuck with large classes which makes it harder for teachers to cater to specific needs of individual students.

Many of the schools have physical issues such as leaking roofs, broken bathrooms, non functioning speakers, etc. The teachers do what they can to provide a quality education (for the most part) but from the student perspective there is no support for them or us from the education department.
I liked that public schools offer alot of free education for kids. They have open houses to let the teachers communicate with parents so they are also connected . But public schools does have some things that some people may not like
. FOR example, some schools being too strict with their students . One thing I would change is giving students chances go improve their grades . Things like retaking tests or extra credits. These are the things some teachers do not offer but I think they should because they shouldn't expect perfect grades form their students all the time . That being said , all schools does have their goods and bads . All together the lynn public school has been successful at many things.
