How awesome is it when parents and teachers lock arms for the sake of a child’s education. There are times when a parent feels like an outsider regarding school issues, having to reluctantly bend to the school district’s perspective and never really understand why. There are times when the teacher feels like an enemy in the face of adversarial questioning and accusations by parents, despite the many hoops they have jumped through to qualify as an educator. The student is always in the middle.
