Fairmount Park elementary school has been named one of the most low rated schools in Saint Petersburg Florida. When it comes to the students, a poll showed that only 30% passed in the Mathematics subjects and only 20% passed in English. It has been questionable whether or not the school should remain open. Many parents are concern that their children are not being taught the way they should, and that often times the teachers are rude when parents address their concerns. Such a shame that this school has continued to disappoint. Most of the teachers stress that the reason for the schools downfall is because they lack discipline at home, in addition that the school does not have the right materials for the children's studies. Parents are still saying if the teachers are being paid to teach, then they should do their jobs and stop trying to place the blame on the parents.
