In seinem Buch "Stupid White Men" beschreibt Micheal Moore, welche Haltung er von Eltern den Lehrern gegenüber erwartet.
Der Text hat mir so gut gefallen, dass ich ihn mal statt eines Aphorismus eingebe.
Teachers, thank you so much for devoting your life to my child. Is there ANYTHING I can do to help you? Is there ANYTHING you need? I am here for you. Why? Because you are hleping my child - MY BABY - learn and grow. Not only will you be largely responsible for her ability to make a living, but your influence will greatly affect how she views the world, what she knows about other people in this world and how she will feel about herself. I want her to believe she can attempt anything - that no doors are closed and that no dreams are too distant. I am entrusting the most valuable person in my life to you for seven hours each day. You, are thus, one of the most important people in my life. Thank you.
