Trust us. At times when I tell parents that their child has been a behavior problem, I can almost see the hairs rise on their backs. They are ready to fight and defend their child, and it is exhausting. One of my biggest pet peeves is when I tell a mom something her son did and she turns, looks at him and asks, “Is that true?” Well, of course it’s true. I just told you. And please don’t ask whether a classmate can confirm what happened or whether another teacher might have been present. It only demeans teachers and weakens the partnership between teacher and parent.

What teachers really want to tell parents (via world-shaker)

Oh well. I think it is part of a teacher’s job to prove their trustworthiness. Why shouldn’t a parent want to hear all sides of the story?

As if it hasnt been shown time and again that some teachers bully students, encourage the class to demean students, excessively and harshly punish children of color, victimize students based on gender nonconformity/sexual orientation, sexually assault and even steal from students
How bout this teacher go after her own fellow teachers for all theyve done to undermine parents’ trust in their profession
And perhaps develop some grudging respect for students as people

Not to say there arent ridiculous fucking parents that cosign their kids’ bullshit but fuck this blanket condemnation of parents and children
