I’m 1/2 deaf/1/2 blind. 2nd grade was an awful year. The teacher was supposed to put me in the front, left side of the room. [my right ear is marginal, the left ear useless].
She puts me on the back, right of the room. She thought that the noise in the classroom would distract me. [she knew about my deafness and had her OWN theory about how to handle things, which was completely idiotic]
I complained to the teacher. I complained to my 1st grade teacher. I complained to my mother who complained to the school. Nothing for the first three months.
So, my mother let her have it during the first conference directly.
She moved me. But as you can see by the note, she mentioned that I “seemed happier” but only after slamming mom. “finds it hard to complete assignments at home”.
She wasn’t there the next year, so I wasn’t the only one who had a problem with her.
Not every teacher belongs there. I’d keep an eye on things.
I’d lose the Dominican argument though. “Is it ’cause my son is an English speaking white kid” won’t get far except in right-wing forums online and a few fellow grumbly fathers.
Gotta know the political climate in the sector you’re in before speaking up if you want effectiveness.
[although Breitbart would publish your Dominican theory]
