Those who have followed my discussions for the year i have been here will know that not only do i not get on well with my neighbours (the orks) but have also had regular run-ins with the teachers in my childrens school. The ultimate problem was when eldest daughter was banned from visiting the toilet in lesson time, resulting in her wetting herself in class. Well after getting the teacher sacked us parents became emboldened and now are setting up a parents watch-dog group to keep an eye on teachers. There really should be no need for what we do, but standards of teaching have falled terribly. It has got so bad that we want to offer teaching classes, do you think it is worth the effort?

the thing that teacher did to your daughter is really not good, for what reason you will pay them just to give a punishment for the children, i think we can we can give a good lesson to our children, also it will e a good effort for our kids.

Some of the things you stated is exactly why we decided to homeschool. So yes i think it is worth your effort to have teaching classes, lots of homeschoolers do it, you could do it too.

Okay i had alittle of a hard time understanding it BUT i THINK I GOT IT. YOUR DAUGHTER WAS BANNED FROM USING THE TOILET because she wet herself in calss? or was banned from the toilet therefore she wet herself in the classroom?. If she wet herself BECAUSE she was banned from the toilet. best beleive everyone in that school would know who i was once i was done with the teacher and the princible. that is uncalled for. and somthing should be done. the watch dog plan is good, has other parents had issues with the teachers as well?. If so and nothing is being done then if you have the credentials to properly teach kids. then that would be wonderful:)

I truly believe its worth the effort. When my oldest daughter was in school she would get UTI's. She would have accidents and they would want me scold her for this. I told them if you'd read the notes I send we won't have the problem...I told her to get up and walk out if she needed to go. Thank God they finally got the message.

I'm not 100% sure as to what your question is. Are ya'll wanting to volunteer teaching classes at the children's school? If that is what you are asking, maybe the other alternative is simply to home school.
