My daughter is in high school and went on a field trip to the Farmers Market. One of the chaperone took at least half of the kids away from the building to Hooters and the rest mostly wandered aimlessly around the Market for hours.
I was so mad I contacted the principal. She spoke with the teacher, my daughter, and several of the kids who went and called me. She basically said the field trip was organized and all the kids were supposed to stay in groups and do assignments, maybe my child got distracted etc etc. I told her I was mostly mad about a parent taking the kids away from the field trip (not to mention to Hooters!) and she said "well that's another matter".
I got the impression that she was most mad about finding out about that.
Anyway my dd got home and was horrified because they called the teacher to the office, then 5 kids that sit at her table who went, then after they came back they called my dd to the office!!! Why would they single one out, they should have called each kid 1 at a time. Now I am sure the kids think my dd is a tattletale.
She says she doesnt care, she is not worried they will be mean or anything - but I kinda am.
Do you think the school handled this whole situation poorly? What would you do? I am thinking just to stay out of it and not get so involved anymore.
