For the record, I would like to point out that in this thread the staunchest supporters of a teacher's right to demand that the parents of her students write a 1,000 word essay (with the children being penalized if their parents don't comply with the teacher's dictates) have been a bartender (lots of credibility regarding educational issues there alright!) and a guy (mistermom) who apparently stays home while his wife works (or perhaps he's sucking at the public teat on welfare?)
Thank you!

Hi,
It's extremely unprofessional of the teacher not to have responded to your two communications to her; as a public school teacher myself, I can assure you that there is simply no excuse for her not to have responded to your multiple communications.
What you really must do at this point, I feel, is to go directly to her supervisor -- that is, her principal -- to express your concerns.
Be sure to let the principal know that this teacher failed to respond to TWO attempts you made to communicate with her! I can assure you that teachers in her school all have free voice mail provided to them by the school district; thus, it seems extremely likely that this wannabe social worker is deliberately snubbing you ... yes,*you*, the taxpayer who pays her salary and in whose care you place own child daily (which is all the more outrageous.)
One more thing: if you do not receive satisfaction from her principal, by all means contact the district superintendent and detail the entire story from the little tyrant's (attempted)*requiring* of you, the parent, to complete a homework assignment up to her repeated failure to respond to your attempts to discuss the matter with her.
Trust me, there still are teachers -- even in the public school systems of America where, all too often, it appears "the inmates are running the asylum" -- who respect and honor the parents of their students and who would never, ever adopt such an inappropriate and overbearing, if not downright disrespectful, attitude towards the parents of her students as your son's teacher clearly has.
Good luck and please keep us updated!
Yesterday while checking my sons grades and assignments online I noticed that he was finally graded on "my" assignment (turned in way over a month ago)..he did receive full credit. As far as my meeting with the principal and the teacher goes, the principal was very apologetic to the fact that it has taken so long for me to get a response from the teacher. The teachers excuse was that she has been too busy and hasn't been able to keep up with her students grading and parental meetings. All in all the meeting went well as a parent expressing my feelings and understanding her class agenda. BUT, I left asking myself....part of a teachers job is to grade her students work and meet with parents, how can you be too busy to do your job that you are getting paid to do? I guess that I do not see eye to eye with this so called teacher and will do my best to guarantee that my youngest daughter does not have her for a class when she is in high school (that is if the teacher is still there, and not replaced with a teacher that can keep up with their job!)

I bet the teacher is young and hot and bitchy Wondering is old and heavy. Why else would she have so much anger to a woman she doesn't really know? And was this assignment supposed to be graded? I would lmao if she got a big fat D for all her spelling errors.
I bet that your 13 years old because the teachers physical appearance has absolutely nothing to do with her teaching capability or lack of! Grow up!

You can rant and rave all you want about your child's school teacher. But the bottom line is, you really need to be more involved in your children's life, and that means in their school activities too. You need to visit your childrens school and find out what's going on and how you can help in making sure your children are being taught by a quailfied teacher.
It is amazing how much time you spend writing in this forum. You first complained that you don't have enough spare time to write a letter about your child. Now we all see why. You spend way too much time wasted writing replys and about other subject matter on this forum. Which means that you probably waste as much time energy at your job. If you have a job?
You sound like a selfish person who has no time for her kids.
In fact, your kids probably have to prepare their own meals because your too busy on the computer. You must think that it's all about you! Your husband should be involved too but I doubt that you are married because you can't be much of a useful wife either.

I, too, have serious concerns about a teacher who apparently feels they have time enough to "assign" her students' parents to complete "homework" essays for her, and then read the (100s?) of returned parent essays -- yet lamely claims the reason she failed to respond to a parent who'd contact her essentially with the excuse, "I haven't been able to keep up with my most basic duties as a teacher."
Sounds like the teacher wants to be a social worker ANY classroom teacher yet isn't competent enough to perform solely her job as teacher, much less quasi-social worker and quasi-psychologist.

1,000 words OR LESS! Could be two, or three, maybe four. Like "I don't care!"! Or "I do not care"!

3 or 4 words. Assignment DONE! Kid off to college, especially if he/she is an illegal!

Thanks "Dream Act", for making this WHOLE POST useless!

Now, off to find a way to make myself an illegal immigrant, so that my child gets a free college education in CA..........

Maybe I can "sneak" into mexico, get knocked up, and drop another anchor baby.....in the USA!

Working on that right now.....OOOHHH, BABY!!!

My daughter came home yesterday from her first day of junior year with the same assignment and I couldn't agree with you more. I am also a working mother with a lengthy commute and I house to run on top of it. I am very involved with both my daughter's activities which are many, including traveling for cheering competitions. I am very involved parent but this is nonsense who has time for something like this, I should have to do homework now too. For the negative and judgemental comments you received you are right that person is an ASSHOLE who probably has way too much time on their hands and nothing better to do with their pathetic lives!

<quoted text>You are very judgemental. Like the other person that commented. Please read my post completely before commenting. I am a very involved parent. I have 3 kids ages 18,15 and 11 which have all straight A's. Clearly I am not a parent that doesn not have time for my kids. Every single one of my children also have a perfect attendance record at school for the past 5 years. I am a very proud parent, but like I stated before I am very busy with making a living (I have never needed any government assistance) and keeping my house and children in line (my kids have never been in any trouble). So if you think that because I am complaining about doing an assignment that a teacher assigned me to do qualifys me to be a parent that shouldnt have children then your an asshole. I pay for my childrens lunches, I drive them to school and pick them up, my children are not latch key kids, my kids a very loved, my kids are involved in after school activities, and I can keep going on and on. Have you raised any kids before? Can you say the same? Probably not.

Firstly, what the parent does or doesn't write should not impact the student's grade. I probably would be willing to write a paragraph or two regarding what insights I might be able to offer regarding my child. However, I would need a few weeks and it had better come as a polite request. I think this mom is doing a good job, getting her kid to school on time, fed, to bed, home work, etc. etc. and has plenty to do after a hard days work. I personally would place a phone call to the teacher, letting her know a few paragraphs could be expected in the next few weeks, and this had better not be a reflection on my kid. Children are not responsible for their parents!
