This week, we're asking St. Louis parents to weigh in on the issues of student self-discipline and teacher control.
Suppose you get a call from your son's fourth-grade teacher. The teacher reports that your son has talked back on more than one occasion and is getting rather unruly. At the same time, an earlier meeting has left you with doubts about the teacher's ability to control and lead the class.
So onto this week's question: What do you do? Take sides? Ignore the call?
