10 THINGS PARENTS WISH SCHOOLS / TEACHERS WOULD DO

  1. Build children’s self-esteem by using praise generously and avoiding ridicule and negative public criticism.

  2. Get to know each child’s needs, interests, and special talents, as well as the way each child learns best.

  3. Communicate often and openly with parents, contacting them early about academic or behavioral problems and being candid, rather than defensive, when discussing these problems.

  4. Regularly assign homework that helps children learn, and advise parents how they can work with their children on this homework.

  5. Set high academic standards, expecting all children to learn and helping them do so.

  6. Care about children, since children learn best when taught by warm, friendly, caring, and enthusiastic teachers.

  7. Treat all children fairly and do not play favorites.

  8. Enforce a positive discipline code based on clear and fair rules that are established at the beginning of each school year; reinforce positive behavior rather than punish negative behavior.

  9. Vary teaching methods and make learning fun.

  10. Encourage parent participation by reaching out to involve parents in their children’s education, showing them how they can help their children at home, and remembering that parents want to work with teachers to help their children do their best.

I believe that's the first time I've ever known someone to believe that they were destined for hell. Perhaps there's still time to turn things around.

Sounds good IF the schools and teacher's and parents would ACTUALLY promote this. But of course, you always have those who act like the ones of whom I am reading above my comment! I want teachers who treat my child as a child. They are not small adults, nor mechanical robots to fit a mold. They are different in every way. They learn different, they act different, they have different emotions which make up those unique, precious personalities. I love my children and hand them over every year to teachers just as different as all those kids. Just treat them with as much respect as you would have them treat you. There is always good and bad in children, parents, and yes, with teachers also. But, if we work together, we can acomplish these goals. It will ultimately result in some great children who seek their own diverse interests in life.
