Good news from the school front

Since I’ve been grumbling non-stop about issues connected with my kids’ new career as public school students, I think it’s only fair to say that I came away impressed after the parent-teacher conference with my son’s teacher. The teacher seemed to understand my son pretty well — his strengths and his weaknesses. I got the feeling that she also came away pleasantly surprised that I was not defensive, but had an equally good understanding of, not only his strengths, but also his weaknesses. I’m feeling less stressed about his public school than I have since the day it began.

    We found that, with a few awful exceptions, most “bad teacher” experiences were good teaching tools for our kids to learn to be skeptical of authority and how to get along with difficult people. Relax, Book, your kids are pretty resilient and will do just fine…despite the bad teachers and because of the good teachers.
