    This isn’t the first incident of cruelty or snobbery I’ve heard of that the teachers either condone our even participate in.Longview school district needs to take a good look at their teachers and their bullying policies and clean house.

    Shame on the student who was in charge of this section of the yearbook! Didn’t their parents teach them the golden rule?? I refuse to believe a teacher would condone this.

    As a graduate of RAL, I can say that Mark Morris is a hotbed that cultivates arrogance and rudeness. I don’t know about how things worked before, but teachers there today are no better than the students.

    I currently go to mark Morris high school. I agree that this is upsetting and wrong but it wasn’t all of the students who did this. Almost all of our teachers are fantastic instructors. Notice how I say almost. I agree that there are some teachers that are less than competent but to say that all of them and the students are bad is wrong. Our school administrators were on this as fast as they could be when they first read the yearbook as it came out to the school. They are making sure this never happens again. My school should not be scrutinized because of one groups problem.
