A Letter to My Son's Teacher

A Letter to My Son's Teacher

I met with you in 3rd grade and blamed you for the chaos and confusion that Common Core had caused in my home. I met with you in 4th grade and became infuriated that my son’s ‘average’ testing was enough for you when average meant so little to me. I met with you in 8th grade and stormed out after you told me there was no money for textbooks and that YouTube was the only suggested resource to help my son with his homework. Frankly, I haven’t met with you since, because why should I?
