Public school used my dd as a babysitter. no joke- EDIT

Posted by   + Show Post

  My dh showed up unannounced one day at my dd's public school to visit, and what he saw appalled him.  

He peeked into dd's classroom. There she was, standing in front of her class reading and said "Shh, listen.  quiet." and continued reading.  No adult was present.  7 year olds were left unsupervised while my 7 yr old dd was in the front, stressed, trying to get classmates quiet, and reading to them.  Dh checked in the teacher's lounge, and there was her teacher, facebooking on her laptop, her back was to him so she didn't see him.  Dh waited in the hallway to see just how long she would be in the teacher's lounge.  It was 45 minutes.  Finally, he knocked on the door and said "excuse me, is my dd going to be paid the teacher's salary for the hour she just taught your class?"  The teacher jumped up, said "sir,...um ...I ..uh, was just heading back."  She was angry and shocked.  The assistant principal told dh "you can not come here unannounced again."  This is why we pulled her out of public school, and homeschooled.  Not saying every teacher or school is like this, I just want to warn parents to be AWARE. Show up unannounced, and get involved to make sure this doesn't happen to your kids.  This teacher, with the assistant pricipal's backing, took advantage of my dd and wasted her time.  She was in AIM, and responsible, so teacher decided to take advantage.  Beware moms.

Edit: Ok, you want more detail.  Right after we pulled my dd out, we decided to homeschool.  We homeschooled 2 years. Then, a local charter school opened near us.  We decided to let her try it out.  Now, she has been in charter school for 1.5 years.  In our school, parents are required to volunteer in the school, not kicked out and told "don't show up unannounced." Totally different rules and admin.  That school is crawling with parents every day, and it's encouraged.  My dd is older now and tells us they don't waste her time and she is challenged. she is not used as a babysitter.  Thanks to all the posters who are decent and polite. I appreciate it.

Thats finny because this summer you made a post asking if kids were excited about school starting. You stated yours were. That your DD was busy organizing things, but was told her teachers ( not you) would help her.....





BUSTED!

wow  lol that teacher would have been fired  my grandpa served on the school board and my mom knows almost everyone on the school board inlcuding the superintendent if the principle wouldnt have done anything  the school board would hear from her and she almost got two teachers fired for doing things like that. both had suprise visits from school board members for the rest of the year and were warned if they were caught again by either a parent or one of them they would be fired

You can come unannounced at anytime! I would have one to the schoolboard.

My son's school has locked doors and you need to be buzzed in and escorted to the office. You can't just wander freely.
I find this extremely difficult to believe.

The 45 minute fbing is what I don't buy. I remember in school the teacher would leave to go make copies or something and assign someone in charge.

Exactly. I like the idea.

Quoting LAXmom21:

It helps kids feel more comfortable when a friend helps them and gives the other kid confidence.



Quoting Anonymous:

I've seen this happen. It never bothered me though. In my daughter's class the teacher pairs up a strong reader with one that needs extra help. I think it's a great idea.

My nephew is VERY smart and his mom found out that the teacher was using him to help the other kids with there work. When too many kids wouldn't catch on to something new, the teacher would take several, the aid would take several and my nephew would have a couple of kids to help. Ridiculous if you ask me, he's a kid NOT a teacher!!

Her husband allowed 45 minutes to pass before doing anything. She waited 4 years to make a post.  . . . . it could be a while.   :P

Quoting Anonymous:

I was seeing how long she would ignore the question. :)
She already ignored it the first time.

Quoting Anonymous:

What did the school board do?

Nothing, because she didn't tell them, because it didn't happen.


I was wondering that myself. If this truly happened, why on earth would her husband just stand there for 45 minutes before he did anything? This story reeks of bullcrap. ( I'm a homeschooler, BTW)

So your husband left your dd unattended for an additional 45 minutes? How was that useful?

I would also like to point out that FB is blocked by every school system, in 2 states, that I've come in contact with.
