You know, I think they can experience diversity without behavior problems. It’s just gotten to a point that teachers can not teach. Why go to school if half the day is spent sitting while your teacher is handling issues? I think something can happen to better support our teachers and to make parents deal with problems. I have been forced to deal with my son’s behavior and I agree with that. However, it should be required for everyone. Something definitely needs to be done. But if all of the advocates keep leaving, then nothing will ever get done. It’s not about experiencing diversity. “Experiencing diversity” is a great slogan for some. It’s about buckling down and advocating and fighting for great schools and experiences for ALL children. Not just those that can afford private and charter schools. This thread is screaming “white flight” and that makes me really sad. And frustrated. And at times defeated. You fight for Amos bc he is yours. Bc that is what you do, what you know. But I want to see more parents fighting for all of the kids at their neighborhood schools, not just their own kids. Even if the other kids are the “bad” kids who curse out the teachers and throw chairs. Just imagine what kind of change we could affect if all of the parents on this thread commenting on how they chose private schools so their kids didn’t have to deal with the “behaviors” they deemed too much had stuck it out and fought for their neighborhood schools to be the kind of schools they want for their own children. At the end of the day, it is what it is. Parents are gonna choose what they think is best for their child. And for some it was probably a very hard decision, I imagine they stressed over it and had several sleepless nights. I get it. But just think of what could be.
