I would like to speak out on behalf of all of those parents who are afraid of the repercussions that their children may have to endure from their teachers because they have spoken out.
I found it very disturbing to see the advertisement in the April 6 newspaper on behalf of the El Centro Elementary Teachers Association. How dare they! I would like to have a resolution passed on behalf of all of those parents who have to make requests for teachers. Every year about this time, I start to think about my child's teacher for the following year and every year I end up with (if I'm lucky) one good choice.
Where is my confidence in teachers? I hear parents everywhere talk about moving their children to other schools or changing addressees in order to make sure their children are given a good education. I know many of the teachers who have children in the El Centro Elementary School District feel the same way because I have seen them make those requests along with me. Does anyone else see a problem here?
