teacher and corners

march 10 2008

One of the girls came home late.

She was crying.

Ofcourse I asked her why.

She told the teacher had many pupils stay late because they didn't cut the corners of their writingbooks.

The teacher wants them to do so, because she can handle them faster when she wants to correct their work.

Some of the children forgot to do it.
Others, including my girls, thought it to be complete nonsense to cut the corners of a completely new writingbook.

As a very experiences parent in the world of schools I wonder if this teacher is signaling she can't handle this group anymore.

The group was meant to be handled by two teachers, but one is ill and won't come back the next months.

Time for a talk.
