Freedon in Teaching-Kilpatrick

Posted By: Christina Niven on December 31, 2003
I guess you're insulted by the label "uninformed" being applied to parents and local citizens. Can't blame you; it is harsh. But I'm a teacher who doesn't like overly involved parents, although I must admit that most of my colleagues gloat over them. I'd rather leave most decisions up to the teacher. Based on my own educational experiences, I assume that my child will run into all kinds of teachers over the years and will therefore be exposed to a bit of everything. So, I'm not too concerned when the schools teach something I don't agree with. I wish Kilpatrick would have supplied an example to support his assertion.
