Are our students too sensitive? I told a student last week "you should know this by 8th grade." Well, his mom complained that I upset her son. I replied by attaching our state standards and that I am available after school if he needs extra help. No response. Then earlier in the month, I apparently laughed at a student's answer. I may have, but why go to the principal about it? I'm tired of teaching concepts only to have students give me blank stares the following day or following week.
