If all parents would read this and actually follow through! As Gerry Brooks would say-"Parent. It's a verb!"

Dear parents,⁣

STOP.⁣

Stop making excuses for your kids. Stop blaming everyone else. Stop always taking their side. Please stop. ⁣

There’s a real problem going on and it’s getting out of control. I keep reading posts, messages and experiencing it myself. ⁣

If a teachers calls you about something, don’t immediately start blaming others and siding with your kid. Teachers have nothing anymore. Kids aren’t scared when their parents are called. They actually say “I don’t care, call them.”⁣

Let me give you an example, if the teacher calls and says your child was on their cell phone all day...your first comment should not be “Well, did the other kids on their phones get in trouble?”⁣

Your kids hear you. They see how you react. They know nothing is going to be done. That’s a problem. ⁣

When my kid’s teacher told me he was goofing off in class, my exact response was “Oh really..not a problem. I will take care of that tonight. And please update me daily so I can help nip this situation in the bud.” I’m on her side. My kid sees that. He knows that. That’s why we don’t have any problems anymore. ⁣

You’re creating entitled children. You’re teaching kids there are no consequences and they’re always right. ⁣

If your kid comes home and tells you something the teacher said (good or bad). Don’t immediately start talking against the teacher. Tell them you’ll find out more about the situation and do just that! Don’t jump to conclusions.⁣

And oh my goodness.....please stop with the excuses. Seriously. Let’s use vape pens as an example. Don’t tell me your kids doesn’t own a vape pen. I don’t care if they own it or not. If it’s in their backpack...they’re guilty. End of story.⁣

Teach your kids now. Stop waiting until they’re in middle or high school. Teach being guilty by association now. Scare them. Be a parent. Team up with teachers. ⁣

Go through their phone. If they’re not 18...it’s not THEIR phone. Take it. Snoop. Look through it. Take it away. You’re the freakin parent! ⁣

This is a scary world and you’re doing a disservice to your kids. ⁣

Please. Stop. ⁣

Sincerely,⁣

An educator, principal, author and mom of 4

Introduction to Grievance Processing
Thursday, April 28, 2022
7:00-8:30 p.m. ET.



This webinar is designed to help stewards, grievance committee members, and leaders understand how the grievance process works and how to make it more effective. We will discuss how to investigate potential grievances, how to work with members and management in meetings, how to write grievances, how to present a case, and how to advance the grievance through your contractual process, all with an emphasis on protecting the rights of your members. We will also provide information on ensuring the union has met its duty of fair representation and review Weingarten Rights and the role of union advocates in potential disciplinary meetings. This session was offered at the 2022 ESP National Conference.

HCPS board approves temporarily shortening school day by one hour for K-12

Progressive? It's certainly an idea worth looking at in our county; especially eliminating meetings where teachers are pulled from classrooms and subs are needed to fill in. (Subs? What subs?)

Teacher hours will remain the same. The board hopes this extra hour will help support burnt-out staff.

May your year be filled with mythical creatures!

1 week before kids planned on going back to class: Jersey City School District says they’re remote until September. JCEA JCEA News 12 New Jersey Superintendent cites staff shortage and safety. Many parents ask: how is every other town/city making it work? #live Story from tonight:
Let us educate you about this week's #ThankYouThursday hero: Jackson Public Schools - Where Community Comes Together. (See what we did there?) The leadership and staff, in partnership with the JCEA and Michigan Education Association, are dynamic supporters of United Way, growing their financial support and celebrating our shared impact in Jackson. They're plugged into Energizing Education because it positively influences kids' lives. And they're great cheerleaders for our work, especially Superintendent Jeff Beal. Thank you JPS!
Often the first to greet our kids in the morning and the last to send them off home, our ESP brothers and sisters are a big part of the reason that makes NJ Schools among the very best in the nation!
