Texting teacher worries grandma
DEAR ABBY: My sixth-grade grandson is in a 2 1/2-hour social studies class. He told me that, during that time, the teacher texts at least six times. I think this deprives the students of valuable instructional time. I wonder when this concern will be expressed by other parents and discussed in your column. — TIME TO LEARN IN TEXAS
DEAR TIME TO LEARN: Has your daughter discussed this with parents of other students? She should, because they may not be aware of what the teacher is doing. If they find it as concerning as you and your daughter do, they should approach the principal as a group.
