Responding To "Favoritism"

Responding To "Favoritism"

Dear Editor,

This is in response to the Letter to the Editor printed 3/16/02, "Favoritism at PS 114". I am requesting to remain anonymous for fear of retribution from the parents discussed. My child is happily in the class of the "undesirable" teacher.

What the printed letter omits is that a good part of the harassment of this teacher took place in front of the
other children, in the schoolyard at morning lineup and at afternoon
dismissal. My young child was subjected to having to witness these
attacks on her teacher. She once asked me why a particular parent was always yelling at the teacher and the principal. No child should have to
be exposed to that. 

These parents may feel that they are doing what is right for their children, but they care not that it has a negative effect on all the children around them. I feel that my child's privacy has been compromised by the classroom break-in and that her safety and well-being have been threatened by many of the incidents. It is the school's responsibility to protect all the children, not to cater to a few at the expense of the others. I can only hope that my child will not be in the class next year with the children of these parents.
