World-Shaker: Censorship at its Finest: One teacher's story of how ignorant parents ruined education

charnanigans:

world-shaker:

This was originally posted here, but was taken down by the author due to too many readers contacting (harassing) the author’s former superintendent and school district. With respect, this story is too important to die. Please don’t abuse this by contacting the district. If you wish to respect…

I feel sick inside having read this.  My kids are about to hit these years of school, and this is what their teachers are facing?  I hate other parents.  I hate those shallow, stupid, soul-bankrupt hicks and their Nancy Grace-esque addiction to drama and promoting idiocy and blandness and fetish for ignorance.

Important read. It’s criminal that we accept/condone/promote educators being treated this way.
