So it's sorta expected to see some sort of waste here and there and incompetency in rare cases(though I've really enjoy my times with the Shawnee Mission school district. And the only 2 incompetent teacher I had both went to grad school, one of them is a Dr.) As to teachers giving out last minute notices. Well, some teacher are just less organized than others. Especially elementary teachers, as it's way harder to go on a hard schedule with say 3rd graders compare to 11th graders. And it's just a V-Day party. Not really anything academic. Though the switching around of math classes does sound confusing and illogical.
When they cry about money and have people defend them on it, there's no way to "accept" that they waste money. I refuse to "accept" the fact that they waste money and then cry they don't have enough. Hey, if I go flush a $20 bill down the toilet and then tell you I cannot afford to put gas in my car, will you give me $20? No different than what the schools are doing, and even worse, people defend them on it. What a world, huh?
As to the notice, it was dated Monday (meaning all 300+ 3rd graders got the same notice). This wasn't a teacher thing, it was a school thing. That's incompetence on a grand scale right there.
Oh, and I know it's just a party, not really a big deal, was simply a perfect example of the stupidity level going on. Was actually shocked when his teacher was surprised so few students brought party stuff. No one in his school seems to stop and think! It's quite amazing. Tragic, yet amazing.
Yep, his teacher doesn't even like it that they switch classes. I thought it was fine at first, but when my kid isn't being taught math in school, obviously it becomes a very large problem.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
