I am very curious to know why parents think they can tell teachers how to run their classrooms but these same parents would have a fit if someone told them how to run their house?
Teachers go to school for a long time to specialize in teaching your precious Suzy/Tommy Snowflake. This is their JOB/CARRER and most would not do anything that would jeopardize their lively hood. But parents see one little thing they don't like or understand and they think the teacher is a NAZI (SFAP) or that the teacher has no right to implement rules in their own classroom.
How is it sooooo different from someone that does not have your experience to tell you that you are too strict/ not strict enough or doing everything ALL wrong in your own home?
I know your Suzy/Tommy Snowflake is so special that no one should be able to tell them what to do but YOU. But what happens when Suzy/Tommy comes in contact with other authority figures in the real world? Do they have the right to tell them what to do?
