Example 2: What Teachers Really Want to Tell Parents

In this article, teacher and school founder Ron Clark sets a combative tone for telling parents what their teachers really wish they could tell them if they could, beginning¬†with, “For starters, we are educators, not nannies.” Clark goes on to list more complaints, supported with examples, of parents not trusting teachers and not taking them seriously. Whatever truths may or may not be represented in Clark’s article, I believe the key to repairing the breach between families and schools is that both sides should approach one another in a spirit of kindness and humanity, not in a spirit of accusation or opposition.
