The Principal of this school told me that the problem my daughter was that I was teaching her at home and helping her with school work. He said that left nothing left for the school to teach her and that I needed to stop doing that. In other words, they didn't want me involved with her education (mind you teaching her consisted of taking her to museums, answering the questions she had and even having her read books and do other things during the summer). She got in trouble once for slapping a bully, she should have gotten in trouble and that wasn't the issue. They made her sit in the office for 2 hours while she waited to be punished and the office staff gossiped about what had happened. When my daughter came home she was able to tell me where the bully's mom worked, who her friends were and she was deathly afraid to go back to school. When I brought it up to the Principal, he told me I was lying. I ask him just to check into it and sure enough within an hour he called back and said the staff had admitted to it.
We also had issues with Teachers putting up emails from me to them on the board so that all of the kids in the class could read it. The bully mentioned above came from that email. We also had a Teacher punish my daughter again because she didn't feel the original punishment was bad enough. Once again the Principal told me I was lying. I told him the teacher had admitted to it and when I was talking to her said some horrid things about my daughter and I. He let me know later on that I had made that teacher cry (after my daughter had cried for 2 days in a row over this and was called a liar). The School had lied, blamed us, and refused to acknowledge or apologize for any of what had happened. They blamed me and told me if I had an issue to take it up to the school board. We are a military family and my daughter had let them know we would be moving, I wasn't able to be "put on the school board calendar" before me moved away. So in part, they did it knowing they could get away with it.
