This questions is to minority parents. Do you feel your child experience discrimination at school? In what way? How if at all you address it? What if whatever you try does not work?
I feel that my child is not treated fairly, but it is very difficult to proof, despite having 100% in initial test she was sent to 'weaker' math group. Her official reading level is 10 levels lower than she really is and the teacher absolutely REFUSES to change it. She put in her class and group assignments with the weakest children in her cohort. The principal states- if you do not like it, leave, no one holding you in the school.
The teacher is generally nice, aka politically correct, but often makes behavioral comments that never happen about my child- she talks (once I saw that her friend actually talked to her, but before my daughter even answered, the teacher gave HER the 'talking' slip), she does not participate (while she climes she raised her hand and he ignored her)...This is much more than this, but really hard to explain.
So what do you do?
