But I have to say something .... how often sometimes I and mostly wifey would go to PTA meetings and other events at school and I would see only a few blacks sometimes we would be the only ones and the school is like 1/4, 1/3 blacks. 

 

My youngest knuckle head boy would get in trouble being a clown or just being a bully sometimes, hell he got suspended in kindergarten and I would often say what the hell I'm doing wrong? I don't believe in spanking and harsh punishments but the teachers knew we were very interested in our children performing well in school and our kids knew it too. When they hit the house door, food yes but no TV or playing until homework, reading and spelling assignments were done. If you are too tired or puzzled ask for help but take care of business.

 

Finally the boy started really doing well in school 2 years ago making more A's than B's, not C's and D's here and there, he's growing up and behaving well too but it was our showing interest by being there and respectful contact with teachers that helped teachers be more patience with him. He's was able to get in the same school his sisters went to, its a pre-baccalaureate program middle school and it feeds into a baccalaureate high school, both middle and high schools are in the same building and the grade school is next door. The girls have always done well in school and did not accept B's as a good thing, but the boy took a little longer to mature towards school. 

 

I think to help teachers to be more fair with our kids, parents have a big part in that too.
