The education of Southwest Allen County is great. Classes are challenging and engaging. Practice and repetition implemented in classrooms allows for memorization and understanding. Relationships with students and teachers are for the most part healthy and helpful. On the other hand, administration tends to be micromanaging and somehow simultaneously ignorant to many issues in the schools. I would like to see changes in this respect as it would lessen the load of stress within the schools in students and therefore raise success rates.
