I am no longer teaching so I pose no threat to this child or any child but I state here and everywhere that teacher tenure is a must for students.
Many years ago I sat in on an IEP conference for one of my students. I wanted the boy to be given a reader, a writer and a calculator for exams. The psychologist and the AP present did not agree. The parents wanted what I wanted. Without fear of reprisal, I was able to firmly state my case, emphasize my long knowledge of the boy and his abilities. I won but made no friends from those supporting the opposite position. I also suffered no consequences.
So Ms. Davis, if you get your wish and end teacher tenure I hope your child never needs anyone to stand up for her. No teacher should have to risk a job to do what is right for a child.
