  • oops sorry I didn't read the second part...Follow your instincts, maybe you can ask around. I'm not sure you'll be able to move him to a different school but maybe adifferent classroom? GL

  • the other school is 10 blocks from my house and my 2nd child goes to preschool there. the other teacher at the school he is going to now is worse than the one he already has. when i dropped my son of from a dr appt i heard the other teacher yelling at one of the kids in a very gruff tone. and that brings up another issue. i just walked in the classroom that day when i dropped off M. and the teacher was at the desk and there were a handfull of kids in the coner playing and the teacher couldnt see them from where she was sitting, i was standing and i couldnt see them...and she got mad that i just walked in and tried tellin her that M got his flu shot and maybe cranky her response was ok you can go now....

  • I don't think you are being unreasonable at all. Teachers should not be talking about religion and such - they have a captive audience that can't get away! If you've addressed it with the teacher and the principal and nothing has been done, sounds to me like the next step is to go above the principal with it now. They had their chance to resolve it, and they refuse, so now you get someone else involved, and keep going.

  • Well yes I would say move him to a new school. I mean the biggest red flag that I see with the situation is that they are objecting and preventing you from visiting YOUR child's classroom. If I want to visit my daughters class, I just go sign in, and go to the class. I would make a huge stink about this. Is this a public school system? If so go above the principle's head and talk directly with the school superintendent.

  • If you an't get answers from the Prinipal go to the school and make a complaint that is total in appriopate. I wopuld have him check by aa doctor to see if he hasn't been abused that is not normal behavior!

  • If there is one thing that i have learned being a mom it is to listen to your gut. if you have a bad feeling and are not getting what you feel is right for your child whatever the circimstance is, you have to listen to your gut. good luck.
