School can frequently be a difficult place for students, teachers, and administrators. For example:
- Administrators have to assess teacher performance, use data to determine strengths and weaknesses in the school, and manage events and school security.
- Teachers worry about their students and admin observations, develop and implement lesson plans and assessments that meet state standards, and deal with behavioral issues, attendance, and the academic performance of their pupils.
- Students have varying home lives, interests, and social interactions, and they also must manage their schoolwork, stress about their own academic performance, and absorb the emotions of those who surround them.
