A fed-up mother sparked outrage on Reddit when she pulled her daughter from a class trip because her teacher refused to do her job. She basically wanted to use the little girl as a babysitter! Here is the full story.
She’s a Good Student
OP is a married mother whose 9-year-old daughter is in elementary school.
For the most part, the little girl loves school and does well.
She Was Stoked
Recently, OP’s daughter had gotten really excited about a class trip to a water park.
She Changed Her Mind
But then one day, OP’s daughter came home in tears.
She told her mom that she no longer wanted to go on the trip.
Her Teacher Was the Problem
When OP asked her daughter why she had a change of heart, she said it was because of her teacher.
OP didn’t understand, so she pressed for more answers.
She Had to Be His Buddy
After some back and forth, the little girl told OP that her teacher had assigned her to be the “buddy” of a boy in her class during the trip.
This boy was the biggest troublemaker in class and caused all sorts of commotion.
She Couldn’t Have Any Other Friends
And the teacher also told OP’s daughter that she couldn’t hang out with her friends on the trip.
She would have to sit with the little boy on the bus, eat lunch with him, and play with him at the water park.
She Didn’t Want to Be a Bad Person
Her daughter didn’t want to tell OP about why she didn’t want to go because the teacher had laid a guilt trip on her.
The little girl was afraid her mother would think she was a bad person.
It Was Nothing New
OP was furious when she heard the reason her daughter wanted to skip the trip.
It wasn’t the first time that OP’s daughter had trouble with her teacher, either.
She Used Her
Several times in the past, the teacher had asked OP’s daughter to work or play with other children in the class.
They were always kids who were having trouble or causing problems.
She Had Enough
OP was fed up with the teacher not doing her job, so she decided to take action.
She Sent a Nasty Letter
So OP first tried to work things out with the teacher over email.
She sent the educator a rough email, telling her why she and her daughter were upset.
She Had No Choice
But the teacher pretty much blew off OP’s concerns and repeated her stance.
If OP’s daughter went on the trip, then she had to buddy up with the nose-picking little boy.
She Made a Tough Decision
Faced with no other option, OP told the teacher her daughter would not be participating in the class outing.
She Saved the Day
Then OP called the water park and bought VIP tickets for the same day as the field trip.
Her daughter would go and hang out with her friends, after all.
She Wasn’t Alone
In the next few days, OP was shocked to find out that other parents had pulled their kids from the trip, too.
It seems they’d had their own issues with the teacher!
The Whole Thing Was Ruined
It didn’t take long before the teacher came back to OP, basically begging her to let her daughter go on the trip.
Nearly half the class had pulled out, which meant the school could no longer afford the outing.
It Was Her Fault
OP told the teacher that was tough, but that it was her own fault.
He Thought She Was Wrong
OP’s husband thought she was being petty and that they should let their daughter go.
He didn’t think it was fair to punish the other kids.
She Got the Boot
But OP stuck to her guns and even eventually went to the school administration to report the teacher.
Other parents did the same, and the teacher was placed on leave until a permanent decision could be made.
This Teacher’s Way Off Base!
Redditors almost unanimously agree with OP and support the stance she took against the teacher’s actions.
They think the teacher was way off base for shoveling her responsibilities onto OP’s daughter’s shoulders.
Many commenters also condemn OP’s husband for trying to sweep the issue under the rug.
