DON'T PLACE ALL THE BLAME ON THE STUDENTS...

Parents, please BELIEVE YOUR CHILDREN when they tell you they are NOT GETTING THE HELP that they DO ASK FOR, ON A DAILY BASIS, from their teachers. My son would tell me ALL THE TIME that he'd ask for help in his math class, but the teacher would "brush him off". Naturally, since I come from the day when teachers DID CARE AND DID HELP, I just figured my son was exaggerating and probably didn't really ask for help in the first place.

At a soccer game one night I was talking to other parents and they had the same complaints from their children. Now these children were NOT in the same math classes. Some were having the problems in Science, some in French class, etc...We as parents went home this particular night and told our children to record video, so we would have proof. Our children did as we asked and WE WERE APPAULED at what we saw. YES, IN FACT, our children WERE ASKING for help in class and the teachers WERE "BRUSHING THEM OFF" and even SOME, to the point of MAKING FUN OF OUR CHILDREN, one even saying to MY SON, "why are you even bothering asking for help, you won't amount to anything." YES, THAT REALLY HAPPENED.

When I called the school to set up an appointment for a teacher/Principal/parent meeting, I mentioned that I had video proof of the TEACHER NOT CARING TO HELP MY SON, I was QUICKLY REMINDED that having something recorded while the teacher was unaware, would NOT BE WATCHED, so it was pointless to set up a meeting. 

So, NOW WHAT?!?! Our children ARE FAILING. Our children WANT TO LEARN. Our children are SPONGES, WAITING TO ABSORB. We NEED TO BE ALLOWED to SHOW OUR PROOF when teachers are NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. TEACHERS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS, or LACK THEREOF.

By signing this Petition, PLEASE HELP ME in ALLOWING PROOF, be it VIDEO, PICTURE OR VOICE RECORDING, to BE SHOWN to the Principal or be shown at a School Board meeting, so the right people really CAN SEE WHERE THE "LACK OF EDUCATION", in some cases, TRULY COMES FROM...

SOMETIMES, IT REALLY ISN'T OUR CHILDREN TO BLAME...
