My kids attend Yermo I am not pleased with the school and how they teach if a student struggles has trouble focusing they don't help they leave your kid struggling, or shove them out the door to speech when they don't have a speech problem because there to lazy to deal with them, or they leave it up to another student to explain. Every teacher my 3rd grade daughter has had always makes excuses I have 30 other students I can't just stop and help. My daughter this year has already gotten a note sent home from her teacher saying it took her two days to do this she needs to focus. My question is why is it taking my child two days to get an in class assignment done. What happened to the day where teachers would get the rest of the class on task and come kneel down and help the ones struggling. They did what they could to make sure you understood and that your work got done they never gave up on helping you. Another thing that bothers me is they harass my oldest daughter about the way she holds the pencil, every school year teachers tell her she's holding it wrong, there more concerned about the way she holds the pencil then helping her find better ways to focus. What happened to as long as the teacher can read your writing and your work gets completed that's all that matters.
