Lately, I've been seeing more stories about parents strapping recording equipment onto their children and recording what is going on in their classrooms.

Now, I understand why some parents might want to do this. You never know what is going on with your children when they leave your house. And sometimes, children, for whatever reason, may not be open to discussing what happens at school. Parents, perhaps sensing something wrong, will do whatever it takes to be heard and to have their concerns addressed.
I know that the vast majority of teachers are good. They care for their students, work long hours, and even devote personal resources to teach my children. These few teachers, all of them bad apples (no pun intended), should not be teaching. Somewhere along the way, they've lost the passion or succumbed to the pressure. Either way, they should have stopped a long time ago.
I'm grateful for the good teachers that my daughters have, and I pray they never have to go through this.
