    Not banned recess but used it as punishment for misbehavior or unfinished classroom work.

    This one kid is kinda slow, always got recess taken away. My boy told me one day when the teacher took it away one more time the kid just started crying right there in the classroom. Little boy. Fourth grade.

    We tutor our kids all the time, they are above grade in everything. You can't depend on a school teaching your kid or keeping them safe from bullying or even not bullying the kids by teachers.

    Sucks, but that's how it is. I refuse to give up on public schools but it aint pretty.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

    •  A similar thing happened to one of my nephews. (0+ / 0-)

      His parents contacted the teacher to work things out. He is one of the lucky ones. It's the children without parental support that really suffer. The teachers know which ones they are, (never come to conferences for one) and so far as I've seen, try to take that into account. But you are right, sometimes it isn't pretty.

      Oh for crying out loud!
