Last week we reported about a disturbing student fight at Atlantic City High School.

The Atlantic City Public Schools Superintendent La’Quetta Small era has been disastrous, as this failed administration simply refuses to implement corrective measures to end the rampant student violence.

We have spoken to a board of education member and several staff members about more student violence that occurred earlier this week.

First, this past Monday, May 8, 2023 at the Uptown Complex, a student fight led to a teacher requiring medical care for head, neck, back, and shoulder injuries.

The students physical fighting is completely out of control and it has been occurring with increasing regularity.

We have also been told about more student violence this week at Atlantic City High School … that resulted in multiple injuries.

To give you an idea about how bad it has become, below are two photos from last week’s student fighting at Atlantic City High School.

Here is a big part of the problem. There are 11 Atlantic City Public Schools. They have just 2 resource officers to cover these 11 schools.

This is despite the fact that the annual Atlantic City Public Schools budget is in excess of $250,000,000.

It’s simply not working.

By direct comparison, Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson and Dr. Phil Guenther, Superintendent of the Atlantic County Institute of Technology take school/student violence seriously.

They have assigned 6 resource officers for their one school, the Atlantic County Institute of Technology.

Therefore, the County school is secure and it has recently been named by the State of New Jersey, Department of Education as the top-ranked School in Atlantic County.

La’Quetta Small has proven herself incapable of addressing and solving this serious and growing problem.

Something must be done now.
