Dear Christina Valdez,
You are right. Your daughter should not have been given a catastrophe award.
You should have.
Because, Mrs. Valdez, You Are Tops. At Sucking as a Parent.
Are you f#$!ing kidding me? Really? How is it that you claim to have no idea your daughter was having trouble with her homework, or not doing it at all, if she was enrolled in an an after-school homework assistance program? Not one little itty bitty inkling?
Call me old-school, but I don’t think locking people up in the stocks was such a bad thing. A little public humiliation goes a long way. I’ve got a freshman in this house who could use his own catastrophe award. I bet if he got that in front of a couple of hot chicks in his class, he’d never blow off his homework again.
Let me tell you, parents like you are why good teachers burn out and leave the system. Okay, maybe Mrs. Plowman put a tiny sliver of one toe over the line, but you sure as hell weren’t doing anything to help your child.
Come on lady. It’s time for you to do your homework.
