Hello, dear editors.
My son goes to school in the fourth grade. And now for the fourth year I have been suffering from the way his teacher behaves. It is I who suffer, because the child, it seems, does not show any discontent. But I attribute this to the fact that he is still too small and cannot distinguish formalism from true concern.
Actually what worries me. Constantly the work of the son is underestimated. It seems that blots in work, for example, in mathematics, are more important for the teacher than perfectly solved examples. Because of them, she constantly underestimates. The boy is afraid of getting a bad mark, but not because he decided something wrong, but because he did not step back two cells on the right, or took a gel pen instead of a ballpoint one. I agree - discipline is needed, but not to the same extent when all life is killed in the soul of a child. When the craving for knowledge and interest is covered with a thick layer of dusty formalism. When a child is not given a diploma for participating in a joint class project just because he forgot to wear a white shirt. At the parent-teacher meeting, the teacher paid special attention to how to sign the notebook correctly. And God forbid you sign incorrectly, because a terrible commission will come!, Which will check the correctness (attention!) Not of knowledge, but of the signature on the notebook.
I don't want to change school, because they really give a very good education here - after the second year of studying English, the child already speaks. But what to do about it? Is there any way to deal with this? What to say to a child? How to protect his soul from the hulking machine of education?
I would be grateful if your experts or readers would give me advice.
Alla, 33 years old.
