I started Fast train college on March 2,2012. I was enrolled and told that this college was for underprivilaged students that could not afford college. I went to class every day and I was 5 months pregnant at the time.
My first class was a class to introduce us to the college. I believe my first teacher was Mr. Sanchez. My next class was Mr. Bush and he was a great teacher. I learned alot in his class.
There were problems though with some students. Certain students would be disrupting the class and when he would ask them to stop they would curse at him and tell him to shut up. He then told the student to leave and go to the office.
The student left but with words of anger and then 10 min later they would be back in the class like nothing happened. The students were not repremanded for thier actions in the class room at all and Mr. Bush had to let him back in the classroom even though in any other school that would have meant termination.
Every day I came to school students were in the back smoking weed. Alot of students were picked up in Dade county by fasttrain buses. Its like the school preyed on low income people because they felt they could dangle a better life opportunity in front of them just to get government money.
I also was borrowing money to pay this college cause they said my financial aid didnt cover the tuition. I am and was at the time on foodstamps so i did not have the money to pay them.
A friend of mine helped helped me pay. They took hundreds of dollars from me that I had borrowed. I had complained of the criminal activity going on and the disrespect by certain students and nothin was done.
I came to school in May of 2012 to find that the FBI were there and they were investigating the school. When I came back to school I asked what happened and they gave some false stiory. Then Mr. Bush got let go by the school and I went to the office and asked them why one of the best teachers was gone they falsly accused him of passing students who didnt make the grade. That was and is still a lie. Mr. Bush is an honorable man with morals and standards. His character is that of a good and knowledgable man.
So I knew they were falsly accussing him and taking advantage of us less fortunate so I was forced to withdraw. I had alot of stress put on me during my pregnancy due to this school.
