Akron City Schools are in the spotlight for being slow to address safety issues. While progress is being made, it is only after a lot of negative news on the fights, weapons, and news coverage about how teachers, students, and parents do not feel safe in the Akron schools.
Many parents do not realize that there are free alternative schools called Charter Schools, which offer smaller student populations making security more easily managed. Today we are spotlighting Middlebury Academy and how they are addressing school safety in Akron.
