What do you think it means when students say they want you to be fair? As part of my classroom management, I try to be fair and consistent, but sometimes you have one or two students tell you you're not fair. I don't take it personal when they say such things, but it does come as a surprise to me when they do. When I ask them why they feel that way, I get because you let so and so get away with certain things but when I do it I get in trouble. What they don't understand and I'm not at liberty to disclose is so and so can get away with certain things because I'm making accommodations for them if you get my drift. For example, so and so might have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and on their it states they have a walk out pass and can walk out of class to cool off if they get frustrated with an assignment or with a classmate. How can I explain their situation to my class without infringing on this students rights??? What do you think it means when students say they want their teacher to be fair???
