Teaching Tips Poem: What Parents Hear From Schools

Parents may need both informational and positive feedback from schools as much as students need it.

Sometimes when a kid has trouble

All we do is burst his bubble.

We just deal out burning criticism,

No attempt to bridge the problem-solving chasm.


To the parents for the trouble,

Nothing but low feelings double.

Would it be wise to reverse the flow

And cause the positive gears to go?

(Any communication needs some positivism in order to succeed. Perhaps workshops and training on how to deal with parents when their children have school troubles is in order.)
