I am aware
I understand there is an eternal push and pull between teachers. After all, the odds of every single teacher in the world being 100% awesome at their jobs is probably zero.
Likewise, the odds that every single parent is doing an awesome job raising their kids and interacts wonderfully with a school is also zero. It’s hard not to sympathize with teachers dealing with parents like these:
At the end of each year all the students merits are tallied up and the top 3 students get a prize. One of the parents was complaining about how it’s unfair their child started so low every year, it was a lot harder for them to get to the top. The list starts alphabetised…
“Intellectual property is a real gray area” in regard to blatant plagiarism
“Yes, my child is misbehaving, throwing chairs, hitting other kids etc. but you took his paper airplane in 2nd grade and scrunched it up, so this is really your own doing. I think the best thing to do is for you to help him make a new paper airplane and apologize. Then I’m sure he’ll behave.”
The kid was in 6th grade at this point.
I had a parent tell me he cut his daughters hair in a short bob because they noticed her attitude gets bad when her hair gets too long.
I had another parent tell me his kid was acting dumb for my benefit and that he is really smart at home. They still refuse to get him any tutoring.
When talking to a parent regarding behavioral issues the parent said “From 8-2, he’s your problem, not mine”
I was in an IEP meeting. When the counselor asked the student what his post-high schools plans were, he proudly stated that he was interested in studying animal science. His mother angrily swung her head at him and said, “Animal science?! Oh hell no, what about our plans for the NFL?!” The student got embarrassed and said, “Well, I need a back up plan, Mom…” and she said, “Not when you’re as great of a player as you!”
The student was mediocre at best at football.
Spanish class. Parent asked me to exempt her kid from speaking anything in Spanish. Said it made her daughter uncomfortable to say anything in Spanish.
At parents’ evening:
“Don’t worry about my daughter, she’s thick. She only needs to cook and clean. How is my son doing?”
“It’s not your job to teach my son lessons.” I kid you not
My mother is a retired college English teacher. Helicopter parents would regularly call to inquire about their kid’s grades.
Mom: “That’s confidential as per college policy. If you want to learn your child’s grade, you’re going to have to ask him/her.”
Parent: “But I’m paying his/her’s tuition.”
Mom: “It doesn’t matter. You child has a right to privacy. I can/will only discuss your child’s grade with him/her.”
Parent: “I’m calling the Dean.”
Mom: “By all means.”
Rinse and repeat, over and over and over.
My mom frequently is forced to let kids retake tests because they didn’t do well on them. Not because the kids have any sort of problem, but because the parents bitch and complain that their genius somehow got a failing grade on a test so the school just gives in and lets the kid redo it.
I was a high school varsity coach. I had a nice girl on my team—with very little talent. After not starting, her mom came up to me and said, “It is really sad that Jenny isn’t playing. How can you hold it against her?” I asked her what she was talking about. Her response, “Well, her Dad’s brother dated you in middle school and he broke up with you.”
Funny thing is, I have no clue who she was talking about.
“Oh yeah, her behavior and aggression vary with the phases of the moon.”
(Publicly threatened to kill me over unplugging her phone charger)
My SO is 23 and just started recently as a high school English teacher. He’s teaching summer school right now and a parent asked if he could stop dressing so well/if there was an older teacher available because his daughter won’t stop talking about how handsome her teacher is.
Not me but my girlfriend is a teacher… one of her Student’s parents admitted to allowing their 2nd grade child to watch smurf porn. Their justification was that it was OK for the kid because it was just cartoon characters.
Me: Mr. Schultz your son is having problems with his reading development.
Him: well I can’t read and it’s never done me any harm.
Me: I see… And what is it you do Mr. Schultz?
Him: Nothing, I’ve never had a job.
Had a star athlete who was being recruited by Ivy League schools failing my English class. On top of his general poor academic performance, I also caught him cheating on a homework assignment which he vehemently denied.
His mom scheduled a meeting with an administrator and proceeded to berate me and to accuse me of discriminating against student athletes (I was the Pep Club sponsor at the time). Then she said her son would never cheat.
I pulled out his homework and proceeded to read one of his answers, “I, as a 16 year old girl,…” Mom then begins yelling at him, “You can’t even cheat right! What’s wrong with you? How are you going to get into college if you can’t cheat?”
