I like that phrase "like trying to catch the wind"
So, you did try to get the other parents to meet with the school personnel and that didn't work or the other parents weren't interested?
Every time we have raised an issue it has been dealt with . Temporarily. Then it is BS as usual. It is the teachers that can't learn.
If we were ignored then we'd try to raise an army. Since all matters have been acknowledged by the admin. they are admitting a change is needed.
Thing is, parents are not paid daily to monitor the daily progress of the behavior of the teachers toward students or of the manner with which curricul is being presented.
So eventually , we go back to our real jobs, then the poor conditions re present themselves.
There is never a time when consistency prevails.
Because the leadership understands this we are actually outnumbered .
And they have our children.
What are we all gonna do, leave ? Go where ? Where are the chairs to seat the children ?
Private ? LOL And know that your few dollars are still paying people who shouldn't be teaching adolescents ? arg !
One true story here, one teacher actually used sick time to go down to her UNION to complain that a parent was harassing her . The coordinator actually had the nerve to ask the parent to stop contacting the teacher. huh ? So, the union now controls the actions of parents ??
I read the alleged " harassing emails ".. LOL !!! This parent just would'nt swallow the cut and paste rhetoric non answer from the teacher to excuse her from due dillegence to the students. The parent simply kept repeating the question.
And again, the family prevailed but this year two families have left the Magnet with this same teachers name resounding as a prime reason. But the stories were far worse.
When you have a child who begs their parent not to contact the school because of an issue even the child knows is not right, you have got BIG BIG problems.
