I posted something in FB yesterday but thought better and ended up deleting it because I was accused of slander and harrassment and virtually threatened by a staff member at a certain school with showing a certain other staff member my post. (which Im pretty sure she did) My original post went something like this: "How would you feel if your 6th grader was doing large volumes of homework just to find out that the teacher never looks at most of it? Approx 75% of my childs homework is never looked at by a teacher, instead its looked at briefly by another student called "the homework checker" who looks to make sure it was done then marks in a book that it was done. The homework is brought home and thrown in the trash! So my child has been wasting a great deal of time this past year in my opinion. How does the teacher know if hes comprehending the work or doing it correctly? I went on to say that MY child used to love to read but now hates it because of the stupid book reports hes been having to do this past year.(they are extremely complicated and boring!) Another staff member messaged people at the school about my post defending this staff member and posted this message on her wall: "We tell the kids at school not to use FB to trash people. Adults would be wise to follow that advice as well. They never know whos reading their posts and what could be considered slander and harrassment" Now I feel that this is just "the good old gal" network at play here but I did feel threatened enough by this that I went back and deleted my original post and unfriended this person. I felt that she had no right to pass this info on to the other staff member as I dont have her on my friends list. I never mentioned a name or a name of the school so therefore most people wouldnt know who i was talking about. Ive had comments from teachers at other schools that said its unfair that my child is expected to do this work but the teacher isnt expected to look at it. I so cant wait till the end of the year!!!!
