The school is not trash,There are many good students there.
The Chicago Board of Ed administrators who consistantly tie the hands of teachers and school administrators are the trash and are to blame.
By closing several schools on the west side to freshman students and then requiring them to go to schools outside their own areas where they bring their different gang issues with them is not fair. Also but creating more charter schools which consitantly take the those most interested in an education, the neighborhood schools are becoming a more dangerous place.
Top that with a interem administrators who have no clue what disapline is and anarchy and gangs rule the school.
There is no budget at Wells for students to be asigned to detention whether it is after school, saturdays or during school hours. It doesn't matter if they cut classes or disrupt them, or are caught in the halls while they should be in class there are no conistant rules to be adhered to teachers must put up with rowdy and obnoxoius students. It hurts those who are there to truly learn. Wells has many good students who are a credit to themselves their school and the community at large. It's a shame we don't hear about them in the press.

Why should you hear about thew good students? They do not need 25 police to intervene. There is nothing special about being a good student as that is what is expected of anyone. That is the norm and should not a news article. Why would you want to be in the news just for being NORMAL? DUH!!!
