CORE CLASSROOM ITINERARIES are KEY to school success – Schools are failing in large numbers everywhere. No one is at fault - we need to find a solution to the problem. It is oversight of the times.
The production of mandatory itineraries is needed. The alternative is 125 calls personally or by phone on each teacher each week by 125 - 250 parents of each wanting to know how they can personally can help their child from each one of one child's 4 different core teachers which they would need this information from each and every week in order to help their student succeed in school that particular week. Family time is scarce. Why would any parent want to spend family time non productively when they don't feel they are being given a feasible chance to help their child? Parents need to use that small but precious reserved time to help their children with their needs and have fun together. Organizational skills take time. Adults can't rely on children to bring home their assignments. Parents must be able to discuss what they expect to see from their child specifically. How can we see our students be successful when they would be used to not having self responsibility enforced because their parents know nothing about what they are to be doing in class? Information is valuable. Even the most troublesome or troubled of students want to learn.
Think how much more work it is then when there are 16 core teachers between 4 children and several schools each week to visit. Who wants to spend this kind of time doing this?? Better question is, WHO can spend this kind of time?
Just one mandatory paper attached to the outside of the door each 4 1/2 weeks that can be xeroxed in the school office by any parent for a 10 cent charge for each page, suggesting what is to be done on a daily basis in class and for homework in each week would find us all in better shape grade wise.
School teachers may tell the parents they can't as they don't know where they'll be concerning in class or homework on a week to week or even day to day basis - "as things change and don't go according to plan - or more discussion is needed for this or that. " Parents can't be unreasonable if in expecting perfection in any schedule, but to be given a list of what will be expected for pages to be read, assignments, and projects in and out of class and when APPROXIMATELY they will be due would help tremendously.
How do the teachers or school districts expect help from parents if parents/students are given the idea teachers cannot give an itinerary out for the reason it can only be meant to have if it is adhered to to the tee (not inviting parents to help their child) - and as well how are parents to put up with this answer?? Parents only want to help their child succeed in it - not change the class or the world. If teachers are afraid of this, parents should in that case, sign a paper in exchange saying they will not interfere with suggestions as to what their child needs and doesn't need to learn. It may be that these teachers may have to pay this small price of a few kooky "know it all parents" who don't know enough to keep their mouth shut in trade for almost all kids in the class making his/her job feel it works. Our children's well being is really about finding solutions to their problems from whatever source we can find. Anyone capable of making an actual website for parents who want core class itineraries to be given to attract attention to the subject would be helpful.
