    Teachers: Some teachers are devoted, and take their jobs serious. Some teachers don't care, it's a struggle just for you to get your teachers to submit there grades on time and they are unfair they only worry about themselves and their pay checks. They'll give out projects and deduct points without a rubric created to explain the do's and don'ts.

    Teachers: Teachers only get their act together when they are being monitored. The classrooms are always out of control and I have videos.
