As a school board member, I have to be very careful when I talk to school administrators about things I think should be done differently. Generally my husband handles those things. When 2 of my son's teachers behaved inappropriately in the classroom last year, he was the one who called or emailed. Now there have been nonsensical schedule changes in the middle school and he was the one to politely point out the absurdity. What kinds of responses do you get when, as parents, you point things out to administrators? what do you do when you don't get satisfaction? Do you take your comments to the next level? I'd be curious to hear other parents' experiences.
