I'm not being facetious when I say that's all great. No argument. My question is about basic teaching. Because children (many) are not taught the basics of writing, they struggle with it and think "This is hard for me. I hate this. I can't do this."
This is able2know. I thought if I asked a clearly-worded question someone might know what I know. The evidence also proves that some (many) teachers don't pay enough attention to their students to see when they are struggling.
Yes teachers are definitely better than others - there are good and bad ones - as a parent you follow up with the bad ones and make sure they do their job when the children are younger and not in a position that they can speak for themselves. There are options for parents - working with the teacher, speaking with the principal, getting your child moved to a different teacher/class, getting extra help for the child besides the teacher, even moving to a different school (that might be the most difficult depending on how your school system is run or lack of financial resources).
Funny today we just found out my daughter got accepted to a small private prep school for her last two years of high school. Now most of her teachers at her public high school are very good (some not so much) - but there are other reasons - drama with friends, smaller classes, more specialized attention, stricter school policies -- that we are moving her.
It is a financial burden but we are hoping for some financial aid. But to us it is worth the money.
