Public school teachers aren't interested in serving parents

Woman who sent her kid to Baltimore public schools shocked to find he is a failure

Fox Baltimore:

A shocking discovery out of a Baltimore City high school, where Project Baltimore has found hundreds of students are failing. It’s a school where a student who passed three classes in four years, ranks near the top half of his class with a 0.13 grade point average.

Tiffany France thought her son would receive his diploma this coming June. But after four years of high school, France just learned, her 17-year-old must start over. He’s been moved back to ninth grade.

“He’s stressed and I am too. I told him I’m probably going to start crying. I don’t know what to do for him,” France told Project Baltimore. “Why would he do three more years in school? He didn’t fail, the school failed him. The school failed at their job. They failed. They failed, that’s the problem here. They failed. They failed. He didn’t deserve that.”

[…]As we dig deeper into her son’s records, we can see in his first three years at Augusta Fells, he failed 22 classes and was late or absent 272 days. But in those three years, only one teacher requested a parent conference, which France says never happened. No one from the school told France her son was failing and not going to class.

“I feel like they never gave my son an opportunity, like if there was an issue with him, not advancing or not progressing, that they should have contacted me first, three years ago,” said France.

By the way, when I say that my older brother was destroyed by the public schools, this is what I’m talking about. He stayed home from school for an entire month with the “nanny” my parents hired, so that they could both go to work. And of course they had no idea, because my parents didn’t give a darn about us or our educations. This is the way it is for many children, including me. I had parents who had no idea what I was doing in school, and the first time they found out what I had done all year was report card day. That’s what you get when you trust the public schools. I understand that we were a poor, non-white immigrant family, so my parents had to both work, but that doesn’t excuse blindly trusting unionized public school teachers to do a good job. Parents have to monitor kids.

Advice for mothers

So, I don’t know much about this woman in the news story, but after reading her story, I have three pieces of advice for women in general that have nothing to do with her. And the younger women are when they get this advice, the better it will be for them.

This advice is specific to women who want their children to learn useful STEM skills, so that they can find a job that allows them to move out, get married, buy a home of their own, and retire.

  • Advice #1: Get married before you have children
  • Advice #2: Don’t vote for Democrat politicians
  • Advice #3: Don’t live in Democrat-run cities

That’s all. I’m pretty sure that if women followed these rules, then they wouldn’t get caught in situations where they are living in Democrat-run hell-holes and entrusting their fatherless kids to unionized public school teachers. Just. Don’t.

  1. I too am a product of public schools. My parents did not participate in my education. They had no idea there was a need to do so. My parents expected me to do my work. They trained me to do so. They used my report card as a gauge of how I was doing. I got in trouble if I didnt do well. My dad worked as postal clerk – much of it night shift. My mom was in and out of hospitals. It was better to be in school than at home. But the schools cant make kids do work. Parents have to be engaged to do that.

    1. I didn’t get the impression that the parent was that great. But that’s why my advice is to get married and then monitor the kids. Pick a spouse who can finance your plan to monitor your kids, not a pump and dump bad boy.

      1. For most people in certain segments of our society, raising children is not in the plan and are unexpected consequences of a selfish lifestyle. So the parent is ill prepared to be a parent, emotionally, mentally, physically. They dont have the training, skills, nor desire to be a descent parent. They expect school to be a baby sitter for 12 years.

        Is it any wonder the kids are failing? Our media and government policies have encouraged women to have sex outside of marriage, to not marry, to not stay married when they DO marry, to not participate in communities which encourage moral behavior and train and hold accountable the parents, while helping them raise their children. Parents no longer stay connected to grandparents, so have no way to get advice or support or help from them. Mothers no long marry to have financial, emotional, and physical support to raise a child.

        Our whole society is all about me selfishly doing what I want instead of what is morally right. So we end up with children neglected and abused and forgotten. They then do the same to their own children. And so the cycle continues.

        The only viable answer is God. People need to repent and turn to God and learn what God has said and obey Him. People need to enter into communities of God where they will be trained, encouraged, challenged, helped, loved.

        1. Very very spot on! The female sexual liberation movement pushed the agenda towards w0men to not feel shame when engaging in sexual immorality. The product of sexual immorality will be rotten fruit, yet they never take accountability for their wh0redom.

  2. Yeah, the public schools are the greatest child abusers in America, after Planned Murder in Da Hood of course.

    This Mom saw her son fail an average of 7 classes a year (isn’t that ALL of them?!?) for the first 3 years, and red flags just now came up?!? Of course the schools are awful, but this Mom should have intervened and told her son she expected more from him than failing all, or almost all, of his classes.

    One good thing about COVID and the welfare state is that a lot of single Moms and poor families are now homeschooling their children and loving it. My prayer is that the public schools, and the churches, remain shut down until they both start doing their jobs.

  3. The whole situation begs the question of what exactly the mother’s experience with learning was. How does one going about believing that “Fs get diplomas”?

    (Also, how is having 0.13 being the “top half of the class” not grounds for having every single teacher and administrator even passingly associated with this school being forced to explain themselves under oath for not reporting the deplorable situation and firing all of the administrators. When I was in high school, being a freshman was defined as “less than X credits earned” and no credits were earned for failing. This young man, since he isn’t passing the vast majority of his classes, is clearly still a freshman.)

    “Bs get PhDs” (where C is failing). Fs don’t get diplomas for anything (yet… sigh… yet… the standards seem to be seriously slipping in all areas).


  4. Great advice here. Yes, I once lived in a demoncrat ran city. Went to school in demoncrat districts, one of the high schools i attended had metal detectors, and it felt more like jail than school. I learned more things just reading on my own, independent research, and getting tf outta that area was the best thing I’ve done for my financial growth.


  5. They’re not being taught to think for themselves, not being challenged to see the bigger picture, and their basic skills are suffering. I know a young mother that doesn’t even know her multiplications tables. I told her, I knew my multiplications table in the third grade, practicing them to excellence over a few month so I would not need a calculator.
