So I have an SD, and sometimes I have to bring her to school or pick her up from school. She goes to a public school, which I am not happy about. Yes, it is in the ritziest neighborhood in the city (her mom's), and it consistently gets very high scores, but the first time I went to her classroom the teacher had "watermelon" incorrectly on a poster! Her teacher is dumb. Flat out. SD isn't learning anything except how to color. She is in kindergarten and can't count to 100 or read even one word (we are working on it at home since school is just nose-picking time, apparently).
The school is huge. There are so many kids. It doesn't feel homey, it doesn't feel like a community.
Well, it does, but not in the right way. This is community of horrible snobby moms who are breeding horrible rotten mean girls! What happened since I was a kid? I have no idea. The moms drop their kids off dressed like they're going to a fashion show, and they eye each other in the hallway and whisper. They judge you based on the lunches you send -- apparently you can only send organic, non-processed, whole foods or else you're put in some lower class instantly, and the moms tell their kids not to play with your kid. I'm not even joking. One of the moms commented that I packed strawberry cream cheese on her bagel -- don't I know that's too much sugar? REALLY?!?! How the eff does she know what I packed anyway?
What happened to cheese crackers and PB&J sandwiches and Hi-C? Kids are required to have water bottles in class now? And it is ok for kids in first grade to wear sweat pants with words across the ass, or super tight skinny jeans?
It just wasn't like this when I was a kid. I feel like I'm in The Twilight Zone when I visit her school. Is this everywhere, or is she just in a bad school? Or am I just a total weirdo to get upset at these things?
At her talent show, the first graders wore leggings and belly shirts and sang some song about "we will never get back together ever" while dancing totally inappropriately. What happened to singing Old McDonald dressed like barnyard animals?!?!
I went to private school, but it was certainly not a ritzy one at all. The moms didn't have these weird mom parades, and we actually learned things, and had discipline, and wore uniforms that were appropriate for us. Her school just seems like a free for all. Is it always like this nowadays?
