Complaint to gym teacher - Phàn nàn về giáo viên dạy thể dục
Dear Mr. Strong,
My son, Ralph, sadly recounted the tirade you directed at him today, and I must take exception to your methods.
Ralph says he was berated in front of the entire gym class and called a sissy for his inability to do enough pushups or climb the rope ladder as quickly as you’d like.
You, Mr. Strong, of all people should know that not all children have equal physical strength and coordination. For what it’s worth, Ralph has always given the best that was in him in gym as in everything else. He knows and I know that his efforts fall short of the achievements of some other seventh graders, and we both wish it were otherwise.
But instead of encouragement, he is showered with abuse, not by his peers, but by his instructor. I find it inexcusable.
Fortunately such insensitivity is the exception rather than the rule at Alton Junior High.
... Better unborn than disloved,
'Cause you're my love, my honey ! ...
