Karoli at DrumsNWhistles has a great post outlining the harm that was done to a young teacher, Nate Fisher, by a student's parents.
First the girl refused to do an assignment (the parents didn't insist that she do it). Fisher then gave her an alternate assignment, to read an illustrated book. The parents found "suspicious".
I could not imagine what this teacher had in mind with my daughter by giving her this comic. I was fearful that I knew what might be on his mind!
Fearful parenting, indeed. I hope Mr. Fisher is reinstated.
