I am a new teacher to the profession and I have began
teaching in a critical needs, Level One School in Durant,
MS. The children practically run the school. Teachers are
cursed at, threatened, subjected to daily fights and only
two security guards are at the school to assist with the
500 plus students there. Before I signed my contact, I
never imagined the headache and stress associated with the
position. It is a complete nightmare. I was wondering if
there was a State Contact to refer the matter to. I looked
on the Mississippi Department of Education website and I do
not see a link. Could someone offer suggestions?
