    Q. What should a teacher do when class size limits or other legal or administrative requirements are waived?

    This is a question we were asked in a class I'm taking. What do you all think?

    That's when you go to the union, assuming you have one.

    Follow the chain of command - assume its a mistake (even if we all know it isn't)

    Go to Supervisor
    Go to Councelor
    Go to Principal
    then.... go to union/lawyer

    NEVER be a willing participant in an illegal/unsafe activity, or it will bite you in the end!!! Don't risk your professional career on someone else's mistakes.

    And document document document!!!

    I'd assume by "waived" you mean "violated". "Waived" is used when one gives up a particular right of enforcement.

    I think La Profesora has rather good instincts/education in the matter.

    In this case, I think "waived" means the superintendent agreed to waive the requirements...signed a waiver. This is from a case study...

    BTW, good responses...these were also my first thoughts. I guess there's really nothing one can do if the district is operating within whatever right they have to waive something like class size limitations.

    which is why I said go straight to the union rather than through the other channels... since I assumed where they were "waived" it was an intentional thing on the part of the administration.
