Has anyone got any advice for a situation where my daughter is being bullied by her teacher.
Overt unpleasant remarks are likely to be remembered by other children and reported to their parents.
If other parents also have concerns about the way their children are being treated then that might indicate a problem.
If there has been verbal comments that have left your child feeling humiliated or with low self-esteem, find out what was said so you are able to relay this back to the school.
Make some discreet enquiries amongst the parents of your child's friends.
Teaching is routinely ranked as one of the most stressful professions.
In an anonymous survey of 116 teachers at seven schools, 45 percent of teachers admitted to having bullied a student.She is getting told off for things that aren't her fault, like not having a reading book because there aren't any of her level in the box, and the other day, while she was in hospital, the teacher read the book she had brought in (three months before!) for her birthday - yet she knew my daughter would be in hospital that day.The bulk of these teachers regularly go above and beyond to educate with passion — to inspire students to explore their strengths while nurturing their love of learning.Still, there are times when this isn’t the case — when, in fact, the opposite is true.Without disbelieving your child or sounding as though you are, it is important to be able to distinguish whether this is bullying by a teacher or a conflict between your child and teacher over specific reasons.
