You are so not out of line.
First off I'd be VERY concerned about them bringing in underperforming students. That is where all the resources and time is going to go, getting them caught up. The average students are the ones that are going to suffer.
Then, don't feel bad about disagreeing because of the environment. Total BS.
Down where we used to live there is a Job Corps where they take in mostly minorities from rough neighborhoods, troubled teens, ones that couldn't get into college and give them a free education, housing, medical, etc. They teach them trades like welding, maintenance, large equipment mechanics and operation, dirt moving whatever, it's a really nice program.
So they had a bunch of worthless instructors and the head guy was almost non-existent. The kids ran wild. They broke into the cabin/RV and stole while we were building the cabin. They shot the cows and horses with BB Guns that they stole from us, vandalized, cut fence and let the livestock wander loose, were always trying to "escape" and would hide out in our out buildings, and even set fire to some of our hay and a historic home on the property that we were going to renno. FINALLY they got a guy in there who practically militarized the operation and the kids are REALLY benefitting. They all go out with jobs, we use them for events now because we can trust them, they NEVER cause any problems, and are the most polite kids in town!
Why on earth don't they FIX the problem instead of just spreading it around!! Hang in there!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
