Charlie took the time to write a thoughtful thread about governance in our district, which is a real and serious problem.
But it's the day after the first day of school and one parent had an important question about her child's teacher. I certainly can understand the problem because I've seen it myself.
I deleted the comment and all the ones that followed it but I'm going to post them here. But this will be the last time that I do this because we have rules about hijacking threads. It makes it VERY hard for others, who come along later, to find information if threads are not on the topic they are labelled. You are welcome to e-mail Charlie or me with your issue and request a thread. Or wait for the Tuesday or Friday Open Thread.
Do not hijack a thread unless there is breaking news.
To the issue:
I don't know where else to post this ..
So here it goes:
My son just started second grade, and when being asked about his first day,
said that the teacher screamed a lot, they didn't get to go to recess, did
" boring " stuff.. This teacher, even though she is clearly an older
teacher, is new to our school. She seemed pretty disorganized to me with
nothing being ready on the first day of school.but I was ready to give her the
benefit of the doubt ...until we learned that she had been asked to leave her
previous school, a SPS too , because of her behavior: screaming,
intimidation,..reviews were pretty bad!. I obviously don't want my son, or any
other kid, to have to endure her for the whole year.
I'm waiting to hear back from the principal, as I asked that my son be moved to
another class, but what are our other options? How come this teacher is still
allowed to teach when she has been asked to leave before ?? What can we do ?
Thanks a lot,
