A teacher who minimally applies the mandated curriculum, hands out assignments, gives a quick lecture with no questions allowed afterwards. If they ask questions or need a explanation to the complex instruction later, the teacher tells them "it's sounds like a personal problem" or "they are on their own" or "use their textbooks at home with their parents". The teacher tells them how unbearable it is to teach teenagers and how it makes her miserable. The teacher complains she has too many tests to grade or too many kids of her own at home that take up her time and energy among other things.. She calls kids idiots and constantly points out their negatives. She favors only the few kids who are naturally gifted and more promising that don't require any effort. I guess she probably is truly too overwhelmed and a victim to overcrowded classrooms, but what should I safely do or say to ensure a more positive environment and tactful approach for our kids without offending the school?
Update: Other kids in the class agree on this but they strongly dislike her. A couple other parents believe this to be true. One mother says she is trying to be "Christian like" and not make a complaint or mabey she fears retaliation. The other mom has made a complaint during a meeting but she was dismissed by the principal who said the kids were basically asking for it....they brought it on themselves. Some think she uses grades as punishment at her convenience. This is all unbelievable!Answer Question
