in the spring of every year in elementary school, i talk to the principal and discuss which teacher would be best for my kids. Some principals welcome the conversation or talk, others are obstinate and wont listen. For the obstinant ones, i have had to go over their head. Sometimes i need to go to the administration and force the issue. I had to do it 2 times, and after that the principal and i were best buddies.

I would have a conversation with your principal and if necessary you may need to demand that my child be moved to another class. The conversation should be around how the change will benefit your child and the improvement in their learning. Don't forget that YOU and your child are the customers. Its just that simple. Its your child and you are the tax payer... remember that. I hope that helps.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

You actually need to write a letter to the super intendent of schools. I know here you can not go through the school itself. However, there is no guarantee even with your letter anything will be changed. Because if your child gets moved that involves moving another child out an into the class your child is leaving.
