Only Present Simple

My school is one of the best schools in the country. All the students  (treat) equally, the lessons  (hold) regularly, all the issues  (discuss) calmly with respect. The teachers  (respect) by the students and the students  (teach)  with all the creativity and devotion what a teacher can only give. Parents  (inform) regularly about the success of their children. High grades  (receive) in the tests and if a child has any problems everything  (explain) to him or her until he or she finally understands.

Much -1- already about school issues. Every country has its own particular issues, but still we have much in common. Children -2- in large classes that results in many of them fall behind. Home assignment -3- properly and very often -4- by a teacher either. Last year some of these issues -5- during the teacher conference which -6- on March 31st. Some rational solutions -7- but as far as I am concerned they -8- yet. The pupils -9- usually for being inattentive and the teachers -10- for being too strict. Neither of approaches can be considered as productive as they give no positive results. The exams -11- every year. The results of the exams -12- regularly for the last five years. The grades -13- carefully for all these years and the conclusions that recently -14- are not the most favorable ones. For example when the students -15- 5 years ago their grades were 15% higher that the grades of the same exams nowadays.
