I hear this is coming:
Hold on! Think about it for just a moment. Think of all the times when you had to hold the line on a grade or behavioral issue. Think of the student (or parent) who got so angry at you that they were willing to risk their time and dignity to attack you in order to change your mind.
Think about these people holding the keys to your employment.
Most of the time, parents can only know what goes on in my classroom through the lens of what students tell them, and we all know that students who are struggling tell a very different version of the story than the one we tell as teachers. Normally the healthy negotiation process sorts this all out (though sometimes it doesn’t; every teacher has searing memories of those parents who refuse to believe the teacher and who even scream and yell to get things their way).
By giving students and parents this type of power, teachers may end up with the last leg kicked out from under them. As long as we are required to give grades and citizenship marks, there will be unhappy students and parents. I can’t even imagine how things will change when these kids and their folks gain the power over our employment and pay.
