There are bad teachers in my kid’s school now, but I always believe a good principal can fix that and turn things around.
But how about this principal is leaving? And she is leaving suddenly, just a term to go before the whole year finish.
I can understand how appealing her next promotion is. But as a parent, just like my other friend, whose son has suffered from bullying in another school before, we have main concern that the next principal may not be as good as her.
This principal is very special to me. She has demonstrated her international visions in education and also she understands the needs of students coming from other countries, just like us. Our kids at least can find safe places and caring teachers to look after them and help them to forget the discrimination and bullying.
The other staff are a bit lazy and indifferent to our needs. Good teachers can make kids shine, and bad teachers can make kids rot, right?
While we are flexible in finding homes here, the area where the good principal will be working can be our next option. Suddenly I feel more positive about our situations than before. Though it’s not a good change for our kid, maybe a good school with capable principal is the most important of all.
Wait and see then. I’m glad that we still have choices to make.
