Hi All, I attended my own child's open house (high school). I sit down in her math class. The teacher comes over, hands me a progress report and without a greeting of any sort, says "she's failing. she needs to come for extra help". It's a roomful of students and parents. Every one turns to look. My child is mortified and I am too. Then he proceeds to the front of the room to start his presentation. Afterwards, I email him and said that I would prefer to discuss my child's progress in private (and a whole bunch of other things about how we're working with her at home, blah, blah, blah). He responds to me that he is justified since he doesn't know when he'll ever see me since he doesn't have private office hours. Now I'm angrier than I was to begin with. Am I overreacting? Couldn't I be contacted by phone or email? I don't know how to respond to this. I feel like if I continue, I'll just **** him off and potentially make my child's life in his class more difficult but on the other hand, as a teacher I would NEVER embarrass a student in front of other students and parents. What would you do?
