Yes, it’s a stupid title, and at the moment I’m mad at myself for the stupid title AND for losing essay I’d typed to explain it. So I’ll leave it at this, and if you want an earful just ask me and I’ll rant away. Here’s the gist of the story, and you can quote me:
There are too many teachers who, when told by a parent that a child is bright, will make it their quest to prove that parent wrong.
I got this resolved for the most part I hope. Met the kids new charter school teachers and they both seem nice (even one of the public school teachers seems nice enough) so .. here we are. We’ll see what happens.
