Teachers demeaning Students
Hi, I just found this site and was very impressed with the information I found. I am hoping to get some good feedback on an issue my daughter who is 15 and in 9th grade is having.
Currently she has two male teachers who are rather young. They both have constantly demeaned my daughter as well as a few other female students. Just yesterday my daughter and another female student came back into the classroom after being in the bathroom and the teacher made the comment "look here comes dim & wit". It really upset my daughter but the other student just laughed it off. There have been so many times this year when things like this have been said. Both teachers are also in the habit of pointing out the students faults quite loudly in front of the entire class instead of dealing with the issues in private. Why is this happening? My daughter has tried to go to her principal about it but even I am told that they are to take the teachers side and that both are very respected teachers. I really don't care how respected they are I want it to stop. What should I do?
