Things you always wanted to say but were afraid

The examples people set and where these people work

Trying to help a kid be more successful often (no, always) involves a lot of paperwork.  I guess a necessary evil of bureaucracy.  Anyway, sometimes some of the paperwork ( not anywhere near the majority) has to be filled out by a parent of guardian.  Sent paperwork home with student.  Parent works at our school in non teaching assignment.  Parent returns paperwork (after repeated request and finally going to her to get it) and it is dirty, stepped on, actually looked like someone blew their nose on it.  If this is the kind of work you get from the person supposedly setting the example, how can the kid ever win???  Why wouldn’t you just ask for another clean copy if it got – I don’t know – put through a war zone or the paperwork was involved in a murder.  Please, I had to use the hand sanitizer after handling it and put it in a plastic bag before placing it in the file.  Make you wonder? Should I have had her redo it correctly like I would the student?  Should I have certain expectations from parents as well as the kids?  But then what???  I’m raising the parents since they obviously didn’t get much instruction in what is acceptable.  If my father had seen a paper like that from me, I would still be copying it over.  I copied whole notebooks over because it did not have the proper slant to the handwriting.  Nothing to do with the content.  But by golly, I would never turn in anything that wasn’t presentable.
