Open Letter To My Son’s Teacher And Principal

Posted on March 13, 2012 by qcmomma
I understand being an elementary school teacher is hard work. Probably harder when you have to deal with asshole kids that have no respect for authority figures.


I know you may have stereotyped us because we live in a trailer park and are on the free lunch program, but you don’t know much of anything at all. You are older than dirt and a bitch.


I understand that you say you want him to do his best. Blah blah blah. I call bullshit! And I call it on you and the prinicpal. This is a kid who is struggling and is telling you this and it’s obvious by looking at grades. HELP HIM! When he doesn’t understand the problem, don’t just tell him “we already went over that, you know how to do it.” Show him again.


And another thing, don’t you DARE tell my son he is a failure! What gives you the right to tell anyone they are a failure? Guess what lady. If he is failing, so are you! And you know what? I have looked at his grades. He is getting B’s and C’s and ONE F. That is not failing, at least, not by the definition I am familiar with.


And don’t just pawn him off on someone else. I have asked you, I don’t even know how many times, to double check his planner and sign it so that I know what should be done. I know he *should* be responsible for this himself. But he is not doing it, so I am trying to put steps in place to correct it.


Make him be responsible. Do not tell him what he will and will not be doing at home…what activities he can and can’t do. That is not your job. Your job is to teach my son to be a better student. I have got the being a better person thing down pat. He is very kind and compassionate.


Don’t single him out and make him a laughing stock. Don’t push aside all of the hard work he IS doing and only focus on the bad. All this is going to do is make him not try at all.


As for the principal. I am livid at the fact that you held my son for almost 2 hours after school. And when he was asked to stay after again and I said no, you argued with me until I gave in with a time limit. When I showed up at the time agreed upon, the doors were locked and my son was no where to be found. You are damn lucky I called the school before the police.


However I was told he was not ready and would be another 15 minutes. Let me tell you something, lady…my son leaves the school whenever I say he is…not the other way around. Then you come out and try to tell me what is going on and show me all these assignments I knew he had finished. Then you tell me it isn’t your problem. And then you walk away in the middle of a sentence? You are lucky I was in a hurry and really didn’t want to go to jail. I really wanted to punch you in the face.


You are his teachers. Not his parents. You are supposed to be a fun, happy environment for kids to go to. He is not supposed to cry every night about not understanding and not getting help. He shouldn’t be begging me to transfer him schools away from his friends. He should be laughing and having fun.

He should be wanting to learn. I hate that you have taken that away from him. And you deserve a big, fat mushroom print for pushing him so far down he has no want to climb back up and do what I know he can.

Sounds like the teacher really knows her students. What a cunty parent.

The woman that boards her horse here is a High School teacher... and she has to deal with these parents all the time.

They should bounce that pain in the balls kid into the short bus class like last week. The kid is clearly a retard, and it's obvious from reading his mother's semi-literate ramblings that he didn't fall far from the tree.

I blame the bleeding heart liberal femicommies who run the schools these days for trying to shove the square heads of these disaster kids into the round hole of normal school classrooms.

"Mainstreaming" is a lose-lose for all concerned... the teachers, the normie kids, and the tards alike.

Being an elementary school I would tend to agree. The kid it to young to be that big of a problem. And if the kid is truly crying because he doesn't understand the curriculum, and the teacher is unable to help the kid without disrupting the pace of the rest of the class, the teacher should be smart enough to put him into a remedial program so he can learn at a slower pace. Teachers should not dumb down their plans to cater to a dummy.

This shit is why I have to make some decisions on what to do with my son when he is ready to go to school. At 3 years old he already meets most of the requirements to enter kindergarten. He can count to 20, knows the alphabet, knows shapes and colors. He can tell the difference between a triangle and a pyramid. He knows animals. If you show him a flamingo, he'll tell you it's a flamingo, not just say "bird". This is because my wife stays at home to take care if him. Right now he's working on states and NFL teams. I don't want to send him to public school so he can be dragged down by the few dopes that can't grasp simple concepts without monopolizing the teachers time. To send him to private school, I'm going to have to work a second job. I also don't want some jaded teacher that lost the drive for the job because she's spent the last 15 years staring at dead eyed kids that are nothing but funding numbers.

My wife has suggested home schooling him. Part of me is ok with it, but the greedy part of me wants her to go back to work so we can go on a decent vacation or do some of the things we've put on hold since we've gone to one income.

Raising a child is more important then a vacation, or two.
I agree. Like I said, it's the greedy part of me. If I hadn't seem such a payoff in my son, I'd have had my wife go back to work already. I'll just have to brace myself for the cost of private school for 12 years.

If you home school your kid there's about a 90% chance that your kid will grow up to be a freak show. That's nothing against you or your wife, but the social interaction, and the away from mommy and daddy time is just about a vital component of growing up and becoming a normal, socially-competant person. You can't spend all day with your mother and not be half a lunatic... you just can't.

Home schooled kids who grow up to be normal human beings do exist, but they're just about rarer than hen's teeth.

Any parent who thinks this is a teacher's responsibility...

Make him be responsible.
Is just wrong... just fucking wrong.

A teacher's job is to hold a kid accountable. The responsible part is ALL with the parent.

I understand that, but I'm also very aware how awful public schools can be. I know a few people who have been fucked over by it.

Hi,
Teacher here.

While the kid probably is a failure, and the family is obviously trash, I do have to say the parent is probably completely right on this one.

The main clue was him telling the teacher she is old as dirt. She is obviously out of touch and just going through the motions at this point, and it's cunts like her that prevent young teachers with great, innovative ideas from getting jobs they deserve.

Unfortunately this parent is not going to gain any sympathy thanks to his wonderful approach of cursing and being condescending. If you're trying to prove a point to a cunty teacher, be the better person. Especially when you made good points:
-Don't single the kid out. That's shitty.
-Don't just say we went over that already. And if you don't want to repeat yourself 600 times, have a student repeat it for the class. At least that kid had the balls to say he needed something to be clarified. Chances are there are 5-6 other kids who were thinking the same exact thing but didn't have the balls to ask.
-And never use the phrase "It's not my problem."

The woman is obviously out of touch and doesn't give a shit. Parent wins this one.

There is a good chance that didn't happen. The kid might be lying to his mom like every kid who gets in trouble does.

Judging by the teacher's actions during the parent conferences, it seems that there's no reason to discount it. Usually when a kid gets in trouble they say "I didn't do anything" and "I don't know". Often, they don't give examples.
