What About Struggling Parents?
As teachers, we shouldn't assume that students who are struggling, those refusing to do work or behave, come from parents who refuse to parent. Sometimes, those parents are struggling in silence, they see their friends post the successes of their children, they watch the school honor every kid, but see little in the way of help when their fight with their child isn't for A's but just t do their to do homework.
And if they come to teachers for help, do we shame them or have compassion for them. In this episode, Coach speaks out against teachers who are quick to dismiss a student, praises those who champion their student, and most importantly, encourages parents in this situation, offering some advice, and letting them know, they are not alone.
