I have a few years to go before my (unborn) child reaches school-age, but I have two younger sisters who come home every day with a new story to tell about what happened that day at school.
Their teachers this year simply are not up to par. One of my sisters told me a disheartening tale last week about her teacher. It was simple really...
My sister went up to the teacher for a pass to the office.
The teacher told my sister to leave her alone.
Apparently this isn't the first time this has happened. My other sister has been having problems too. When I go to pick them up from school I hear other children rambling off curse words like it's nobody's business.
This can't be the natural course of things.
I'm worried about "the future of our children". Is it a public school problem, a home problem, a combination of both? Something else?
It wasn't like this when I was in elementary school...
