Parent/Teacher Issues

I had a small problem with one of the parents here. They pulled their daughter from school because of concerns about a teacher I have coming in to help me teach the adult class. The key word here is ADULT CLASS.

I got a phone call from a father of one of my students saying that they were pulling their daughter out of school until there was a little more information on my adult teacher. Apparently at his church they had just had seminars and classes on the whole sexual predator thing. Which in my opinion is a good thing. In this day and age everyone needs to be aware of what is going on around them. I have no problem with that. My problem is with him trying to tell me what I need to do with my adult class.

I told him that we could sit and talk about it one day after school and he could explain to me what the problem was. When he explained to me on the phone it came out as him being homophobic which in my opinion is not right. I am not homophobic and could really care less what they do on their time. Well I was caught between a rock and a hard place. I knew that this teacher S would not be a problem with the kids because he gets here just as the children’s class is ending and there is some time between the two of them. And he always asks me, when are the kids gone? I mean as soon as I am done with their class he wants to know when they are leaving. LOL.

Well S talked to S2 about S3 and it turns out that the other thing is that S2 was a little upset about S leaving so soon. Even though she had been telling everyone that she was going to move I guess no one took it seriously. Even for the past 2, maybe 3 weeks, she’s been packing and putting them up front. How can you not know that someone is going to leave when they do all of that. I don’t get it, how do you not know what it going on. A lot of the boxes were up front by the front door.

So now things should be ok and the daughter should be here on Tues like always but there are other issues that I have to work out with all of the parents.
