How do you deal with favoritism in the class room? My sons (age 7) teacher favors one student over others. Normal things like that dont bother me, but my son gets in trouble because of that student. He gets blamed for his actions. That student also gets special privileges like using her person ipad and when DS or other students ask for a turn she tells them no. DS questioned it and said that it wasnt fair and was told "it my ipad and Ill do what ever I want with it" How is this woman a teacher? She acts like a child herself. My son has gotten recess taken away for not sitting right on the reading carpet. For her forgeting he asked to go potty. She has also refused to let him go. Those are just a few examples. I have tried to communicate with her but she always has a reason to punish him and gives me vague reasons like "he was being wild" when no other teacher or teachers aid sees this behavior? She's very snotty towards me in general. How do I deal with this?
I want to add he has legitly been in trouble, and the principle handles when kids are actually bad (very small school btw) and he has told me DS isn't a bad kid and the few time he was in trouble that favored student was at the root of it. But he did do something wrong and had to have a consequence. I guess what I'm trying to say is if he is doing something wrong I have no problem with him getting punished but it just seems like he gets punished for more things that he doesn't do or are silly things then the bad student in class gets special things? what is that? I have also talked to other parents and they said their kids say the same things about that student. So its not just my son.
