Parents doing Teachers job?
Original post made by Brenda, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Aug 26, 2011
Is it just me or are more and more teachers trying to get parents to do their jobs? I have been a parent in this District for several years and this trend is disturbing. Is this working Mom too sensitive or are teachers delegating their jobs to parents at all schools? One teacher at my child's school advised the parents that it's their duty to help in the classroom to show their child that they value education. They even created jobs for "working parents" and suggested they could correct papers or put together book orders on the weekends! Do other parents feel that part of a teacher's job is correcting papers and isn't it a breach of confidentiality to have a parent correct papers? Are parents really qualified for doing a teacher's job? I consider myself a teacher supporter but more and more I feel that teachers aren't putting their job responsibilities on parents. Thoughts?
