The Right Way How to Complain to a Teacher

A PRIME Insurance Special

When it comes to school and kids, one thing is a given. There’s bound to be a time when parents have a complaint. As with any matter involving relationships and criticism, there’s an art to doing it right. Keep your rapport with the teacher on mark by following the suggestions.

General Dos and Don’ts

Before picking up the phone, emailing or meeting with the teacher:

  • Do take the time to analyze your complaint. Is it valid? If in doubt, verify details and determine if a confrontation is necessary.

  • Do go to the teacher. Don't go to the principal or board of directors.

  • Do devise a respectful way to present the concern.


During your conversation with the teacher:

  • Don’t let your emotions get the better of you.

  • Do approach the subject as objectively as possible.

  • Do consider the teacher’s feelings.

  • Do be courteous.

  • Do allow the teacher to give her or his side of the story.

  • Do consider a compromise as a satisfactory solution.


At the Conclusion:

  • Do come up with a plan of action together with the teacher.

  • Do leave the meeting on good terms.

  • Do plan to speak again to assess progress.

Of course, in the event your interaction leads to a stalemate and your child’s emotional, physical, or academic well-being is at stake, it is your responsibility as a parent to take the problem to a higher authority in the school.
