I think it's important to find out what kind of misbehavior was going on when the teacher was out.

The teacher faces a very real problem if there are discipline issues when there is a sub. An out of control classroom can be a dangerous place.

It's up to her to nip that problem in the bud.

So far, she has a) informed the parents of the previous problem and b) informed the parents of her new method to discourage future problems. It sounds to me like she is trying to avoid penalizing the entire class by instituting her three strikes policy.

It may sound harsh to a gentle mama, but you HAVE to remember that the teacher is dealing with a large group of kids, many of whom do not have the benefit of being taught appropriate social skills.

It sounds to me like she is doing the best she can.


ps what is your child's take on what happened in school those two days?
