Here is a real life situation at my school that I thought could potentially be up for debate.
At our elementary school, just last week, we implemented required after school tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays for all children who did not pass the practice OAA (Ohio Achievement Assessment) in November. All children who did not pass must stay after school with their classroom teachers on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 5:30 pm. School releases at 3:30. If parents refuse to have their child stay after school, that child must miss all lunch recesses to receive the tutoring during lunch recess.
How would you feel if your child were one of the students who was required to have tutoring? Do you think this is a good plan that the school has implemented or is it unfair to children and parents?
