In one school district in Michigan, teachers are being shoved about and moved around like pawns on a chessboard and there is no outcry from outraged parents; especially since the children are the victims of the incompetency prevailing through what is normally called, “human resources”. This department needs to change its name to “inhumane resources”. That would be a more apt description for what they provide. This is “almost” the end of the first semester and teachers are moved from classrooms where they have “almost” developed a relationship with students and the students have “almost” connected with their teachers. Now that connection has been broken and knowing the students the way I do, the next teacher they have is really going to catch it.
Parents, where is the outrage? Why don’t you care enough about your children to file a class-action lawsuit against Detroit Public Schools for disrupting your child’s education, perpetuating a constant state of failure, and total disregard for the process of educating inner city students?
Students in Detroit–if your teacher has recently been transferred–revolt and demand the district to consider your needs, first and foremost.
DPS–Dumbfounded, Perplexed and Stultified–refusing to “see” themselves as the culprits for failing schools and always laying the blame squarely on the shoulders of the teachers who do not make foolish decisions and do not have any control over the ineptness constantly displayed by those who are at the helm.
It’s time to wake up folks if success is ever going to be possible for this district and its students!
