Ok, so my oldest is in the sixth grade, ya know the age when the teachers don't want you to breathe their air or talk to them. The age when they want to tell the child everything, the child listen, etc. Well, they sure don't listen to our children, do they? My dtr had knee surgery less than a month ago and her teacher told her to climb 2 flights of stairs, in a hurry no less casue the class was about to end and she needed some book. My dtr told her she just had surgery and was not supposed to do that, showed her the scars, did the teacher care? Nope.
So, has anyone just about had it?
I sent the pricipal an email and I sent the teacher a written note. I thought the only class I needed worry about was PE. I sent an email asking if she needed a note for everything, every class. This is ridiculus.

Here is the other side to that, teachers here excuses all day long and students do take advantage of them. I personally know students who will make some excuse and then go roam the halls. Unfortunately, the teacher is still liable and responsible if something happens to that student. When it is a health issue: send an e-mail or written notes to each on of her teachers. Yes, it is a pain but this covers her and them. This is also the age where you can't tell the kids anything, many seem to think they know it all. It is a two way street. I have seen jaded teachers who were not as sensitive as they should be to students. Hang in there. The alternative is that you can send your child to a private school, move to a new district, or home school. Other wise you just have to be attentive as a parent and respond to each issue as the come up.
