On Monday, we received two letters stapled together from the school, informing us of a new reading program that was being implemented for the first grade. The one on top, signed "from the 1st grade teachers" was concise, well-written, and very nicely described the new program. The one underneath, which was "signed" by the principal and apparently the official district letter about the new program, was absolutely terrible. I'm not even sure I would have understood what was going on if I'd only received the district letter.
That the first grade teachers knew that a different, more informative letter needed to be sent home tells me that they are aware of how terrible the official letter is. And if they can't get anything done about it beyond sending home a second letter ...
This. My parents are retired teachers who spent decades dedicated to their profession. I can't count the number of times they and their colleagues were frustrated with the lack of professionalism in the communications of the administration. A standard, half-serious joke of theirs was that principals and superintendents went into administration because they couldn't teach. There would even be times when secretaries would correct the letters, notes and memos of the administration and the principal or superintendent would "correct" those correct editings, which would really disgust them.

L2: Exactly why I am busting my butt to keep my kid in privat school. I used to live near a high school that always had words spelled incorrectly on their sign! I decided then and there that my child would NOT be enrolled in that school system. And it wasn't a one time error.

Um, I think you mean "private", lol. Actually, just because a school isn't public doesn't mean it will be good. Generally, they are, but I've also known some suck-azz ones as well.
