Hmm - well, as a parent of 4 school kids who pays my taxes every year for public schooling.
I think I should have more of a say over my kid's schooling environment. If a teacher sucks ****ing nards I don't believe they should be allowed to sabotage my children for an entire school year.
If things were more 'up to the parents' our education system would be better off.
They would have to come to a system that still tried to protect the teacher from public scrutiny and without 'harassing' anyone - teacher, student and parent alike - so maybe a meeting of parents without the teacher and a few people from the district/staff (etc) would be more ideal - talk about concerns, share issues, discuss findings of a review - etc - without fear of lashback or getting their children in the hot seat for parental opinions.
The school should evaluate throughout the year - taking into account issues from students, from parents and other teachers as well as first-hand accounts of events. . .and use that with the teacher throughout the year to focus on issues that need to be addressed and changed - etc.
People seem all to ready to just hire or fire - but there needs to be a measure of time for improvement or to simply not repeat a problem.
