Written on Maryville schools discussion on music curriculum has parents at crescendo pitch:

in response to rational:

I said the need for tutoring is minimal. I don't think it should be a policy that it HAS to be available at the beginning of the school year. If your child runs into issues, the teacher IS going to work with you. Every teacher I've encountered in this school system is great. If you have a problem, they will work with you to find a solution. I think the trick is to work with the teacher. I didn't blame anyone when my child got behind on his work. I didn't point fingers. I just asked for help. I think you catch my flies with honey than vinegar. The school WANTS children to be successful - they will work with parents.

Most of the time, yes. But, as a MHS student, there are often times where teachers are inflexible, and the things we do in class do not make sense. For the most part, the teachers in MHS fall into three different categories. First are the very professional theaters who know what they are doing and actualy teach. Next are teachers who are a little more random and have arguable teaching styles, and often times these teachers are the most helpful. Last are teachers ( and administrators) that are highly unprofessional and make being at school a bad experience for a lot of people. Yelling, sexism, rash comments, closed mindedness, and other "important" skills are being taught to your children by people they see everyday. And these are not a minority either, these 3 groups are not super out of balance. And these people in the last group are not hidden, peopleknowwho they are and the fact they are still in the school is sup rising for a lot of us students.
