I hate parents sometimes!!!!!!!!!

I teach special ed and parents are going to my boss instead of me to bitch that their kid does not have enough homework and its not challenging enough. I send homework home based on the level they are reading at in class. So you want your student to have homework they can't read??? That will thouroughly frustrate them and make them hate school? Fine, I will give it to them. You want grade level work for your student who is clearly working at a level not even close, fine I'll send it home. You deal with it. Oh, me giving your kid work all day isn't frustrating enough for them, you want them to have 2 hours of homework every night, I can do that too. They won't learn anything from it, but hey no problem. I think some of these parents want their kids to have busy work so they don't have to deal with them at home. I have one parent who wants their kid in a regular 4th grade class next year, but he can barely do 2nd grade work. She thinks nothing is wrong with him and he will grow out of this stage. Go for it, you want him to be frustrated and fail miserable, have at it. But don't come crying back to me when you want him back in special ed. It's not that easy to get them back in. Grrrrr, I can't wait to get yelled at by these parents tonight at conferences.

There's your answer right there.

On a side note, how many of your SE students are male? I remember reading an article about how schools in the early 80s were catering to male students, they quickly switched that around to cater to female students. So when I went through school I had a tough time.

(Or it was cause I have too many head injuries, who knows)

Why are they depending on you to give them more homework? I'm sure they can come up with ways to do extra studying with them if they tried. At least they care enough to complain. That would be too much effort fo some of them out there.

I think parents need to work with their kids above and beyond what they are taught in school anyways.. Not every kid in each class is at the same level

Yeah, teaching...I don't get it. Talk about a thankless job.

I have a lot of respect for teachers...10x more for the ones who work with challenged and/or difficult kids and who truly care for the students.

While I wasn't a very good studen, I sure had some fantastic teachers.

I don't know how you do it. My brother is a teacher and the red-tape that he has to deal with for all his 'LD' kids is insane. When I was in school 10% of these kids would have actually been in 'Special Education' classes. The rest of them are just friggen kids being screw-off's.

The lack of personal responsibility is wide ranging. I really feel for teachers nowadays, what with email and instant access to teachers 24/7...nothing is good enough, candy is a no no, and any cut, bruise or fall warrants a trip to the nurse...no one wants to get sued for negligence. It's a real disaster. Us children of the '70's and '80's would whoop on these sallies (NOT SPECIAL ED KIDS, SMARTASSES! )

Parents that complain like that really piss me off too. They have nothing else better to do with their life except for criticize every move a teacher makes. I want to kick them in the face.

Of course I do think I had a lot of shitty teachers too that deserved to be kicked in the face.

no shit, when they stoped allowing dodgeball to be played, that was the end of a real era. I got picked on as a kid in elementary school, damn group of Arabic kids ganged up on me. Teachers didn't say shit. that kicked my ass into gear and got me working out. I kicked their asses a year later...true story.

I know of this first hand, as they put me in special ed of all of 3 days in second grade. They quickly discovered I was just bad, and threw me back in class. Teachers talked to my parents, they did a little laying of the hands, and bam, I was back on the straight and arrow .

That explains alot



I gotta give you a huge thanks for having the patience to teach these kids. Seeing as my younger brother is special Ed and we've heard how some parents and I can feel your pain. The best thing to do is just zone em out and vent every now and then because most of the time the parents are mad that your making a bigger impact in their kids life then they ever will. What age level do you teach?

You are legally bound to meet the IEP for the child. The parent may request a staffing to have the IEP adjusted but you can only give the amount of work that is in the IEP if the parent wants to supplement it they can but you are under no obligation to do anything other than the IEP.

WOW I have never heard this before. i always here the other way around. Parents will never think their kid is bad, or needs help and the kid suffers. I think it's sad. My daughter needs help reading and I accepted it and we work with her a lot and she's getting a lot better. The teacher and I email each other so I know how she is doing.
As for the conferences tonight, just have Tony and ken sit on either side of you, they will shut the parents up.
It's amazing how the parents think it's easy to teach special ed kids, and they tell you how to do your job when they have no training in it.

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

Completely different issue...imagine having to deal with the asshole parents of the assholes you have to deal with at work already, telling you how their asshole kid is not the problem...you are.

Coaching little league was bad enough, teachers have a tough rode to hoe.

I also heard they were complaining that papers are not being passed back fast enough. Yea, so today while digging around in my room for something I found a whole big bin of papers that I graded while on leave that my sub should have returned and didn't. I guess that is where that came from. So they all got an assload of papers home today also with a note blaming it on my sub.

I decided to send home grade level work over the weekend for the ones I figured were bitching. Let them deal with that all weekend and see how terrible there kids read out loud to them. I had to tell the kids what every other word was in the story when we read it in class. Ha!!!

I teach grades 1 thru 4 in my room and these people must think it is easy to have 4 grades in here with all kinds of wacky schedules and no plan period. Let them try to fit in everything during the day.

I hate that I am in a crappy mood before these stupid conferences today and tomorrow. I really just want to tell a few of them off when they come in.

Oh and to top it off because I am not tenured they can fire me at the drop of a hat for the complaints even if my evaluations are good from my observations. So it sounds like I am looking for a job now too. I wish I could do something part time and make what I am making now, which probably is possible. At least then I could be home more with the baby.

Difficult subject, since I have a special needs step-son. Personally IEPs seem "cookie cutter" to me, they don't seem individual enough. I think for these kids, they need to have challenges, but that must come from the parents, homework from teachers...challenges from the parents. Teachers are a special breed, special ed teachers are miracle workers who are slightly insane

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.
