Re: So Burned Out!
What would you overhaul? All of the research, (and a HUGE push in urban schools with lower SEC students), says to get parents involved. The more involved a parent is with their child's education the better. How would you overhaul the system to keep parents involved but avoid the occasional parent that is clueless? Too many folks have too thin of skin and no conflict resolution ability, (not saying this was you). I'm just curious, for the sake of those still teaching, what a balance might look like for involved parents but not irritating parents sometimes just doing the best they know how.
As a parent, I have been the problem parent for my child's building a few times because the teachers and one particular admin were absolutely NOT doing what was in the best interest of the students in the program, (wasn't band). I had the phone calls and the zoom meetings and a few scathing emails and raised hell, (and got changes made for future years). I am certain two particular people didn't like me much after that month but it was the right thing to do. Sometimes schools are at fault and not the parent. What's the balance?
