A Letter to the Teachers of My Children by Shelley at Teach Paperless brought a lot of parents’ concerns to the the forefront.
Unfortunately, not all parents, teachers, and administrators are on that same page. Many teachers would be upset with receiving a letter from someone stating the “facts” like Shelley did.
What am I talking about?
Well, first, you must go over to Shelley’s post and read the entire letter.
He wants challenges in his children’s education, he wants engaged learning in his children’s education, he wants teachers to know his children, AND he wants his children’s current abilities to be acknowledged, encouraged, and broadened.
This is what we all want (or what we should want if we are involved and care about now and the future) for “our children” -- the children of the world of today!
Why don’t you write a letter to your child’s teacher, or if you do not have children in school, write a letter to all ALL teachers?
