Requesting my child NOT get a specific teacher, is it justified?
Here is the background. The teacher we are asking her not be placed with recently got divorced from a woman who was my daughter's 3rd grade teacher (at another school). She is still extremely close with this teacher, and her ex-husband is aware of that relationship. The reason for the divorce is because he had an affair with the married mother of one of his students this past year. I have also been told that during that year he was picking on a child who's mother was also a friend of his ex-wife. I cannot believe that he has not been fired or transferred, but as of now he is still there. I am worried that being in a classroom with him will be difficult for my daughter and not be a good learning environment for her. Of course I am also concerned that her being friendly with his ex-wife will give him cause to single her out in a negative way. Do you think I have just cause to make the request for her not to be placed in his class? Thanks!
