[ - ] Pull out my dd from Success Academy after seeing how they abuse their "scholars". Just saw the video, so PROUD of doing it in the middle of the calendar year and without any options! Was the right move. Even though my dd wasn't the one abused, the message they receive is "it's ok to treat kids like crap". 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Public school. To be completely honest, I fell for the high test scores of SA. Then, during a class I was invited to I realized that there's no test score worth the psychological damage SA puts on kids. I want my dd surrounded with nice people, if math score isn't sky-high, I'll learn to deal, we can practice more at home. [ Reply | More ]

Exactly. That is what bothered me. The message from their parents sending them in everyday saying this is the way teachers are supposed to teach. Dear lord! I can't imagine the guilt I would feel having done that to my son. [ Reply | More ]

OP here, another thing that bothers me about SA parents from non-poor neighborhoods: "this one is not that bad, SA treats poor minorities the worst, because they NEED it". A poor kid with few resources and social support needs MORE help, not military treatment. It's racism to condone the behavior of SA just because poor non-white kids tend to be the victims (and not THEIR kids). [ Reply | More ]

Fact is, each time a parent complains about abuse, the SA excuse is always the same: "that teacher has little experience". Then you realize that's the case with the lion share of SA's teachers. It's systemic, not contained to a single untrained teacher. [ Reply | More ]

She may have little experience, but that doesn't explain the extreme hostility to children. The shaming of a child who didn't know an answer, who wasn't acting out, was not excusable. She should be fired. What has Eva said about this? [ Reply | More ]

SA believes in motivating through embarrassment, using public display of mistakes and even tiny violations to code of conduct (like not having hands together like those little scholars had). [ Reply | More ]
