I was very disturbed when my child brought home a letter from school asking parents if they had requests regarding teacher selection for the next school year. In that letter it gives parents an option to request that their child not be placed in a class with a particular child. What are we teaching our child...if you don't get along with little Johnny mommy will request that you not be in class with them next year? This is insane. These letters asking parents for their request need to STOP. If there is a particular reason, such as a child needing a more structured classroom then that should be discussed on an as needed basis at a meeting requested by a parent and or teacher. The school should not open up a can of worms and said home letters!
