I was thinking of emailing the principal and going from there. I wasn't sure if I should go straight to the principal or the teacher first.
In regards to the other teacher, i know she lost her job at our school at least, because she had no idea how to teach. She never did class plans for the term at all. She didn't realise she had to, according to the education assistant. The kids were all worse off than before they had started school for the very first time a year earlier. Most of them had forgotten the alphabet and how to form some simple letters, and in some cases forgot how to write their names that they had all worked so hard to learn the year before. They all became brilliant at colouring in though. on the flip side, the school made sure they had an excellent teacher the following year who exceeded her role and worked really hard to get them above and beyond their next year level the following year. That's not the case this year though. This years teacher is considered to be very experienced.
I think it's too late to consider changing classes now as well.
