I actually support the teachers here, and also the theory that it was more likely 2 tv shows, rather than movies (kids are easily confused)

Two movies back to back?? I didn't realise schools had time blocks long enough to allow for two feature length movies in a row, but I guess if that's what your 7yo told you, it must be true eh.
Wouldn't phase me if my 7yo came to me and told me his class had watched 2 movies in one day at school, would be the very first for that in the 2 and a half years he's been at school, no big deal, kid has had a fantastic year making HUGE progress with a fantastic teacher, I think it would be pretty cool for kids to have ONE fun relaxed day!

Anyway, the expectation on your husband is ridiculous and wrong, I hope he is being paid a truck load. Life's too short.
What's got my goat for this entire thread is the expectation teachers are damn well expected to put in all these crazy personal hours. They are not slaves, they are people too.
I would rather a nice refreshed teacher teaching my kids not a poor burnt out shell.
Hats off to you ladies that are teachers, I couldn't deal with half the bullcrap that you have to put up with.One glance at this thread and quite frankly I'm reeling at some of the responses.

Wowsers. Going to the principal because the kids watched a couple of movies?
Honestly, I don't see the huge issue with it. Kids are tired at this time if year and no doubt enjoyed a bit of down time.
No wonder it's so difficult to get good teachers to stay in the Schooling system. They can't really win!
OP, I'd take a chill pill and let it go.

I thank my hairdresser for doing a wonderful job, I appreciate the service my doctor provides and constantly thank him, I'm even very complimentary to the barista who makes me the most wonderful skinny flat whites. Yet the things I hear said about teachers often leave me gaping at the mouth. They are there providing a service for our most prized processions yet they are often berated as a whole so openly. I genuinely just don't understand it.
Unfortunately the attacking negative behaviour of others can be soul destroying. Kudos to you MB (warm fuzziness!!)

TBH, I couldn't care less if DD's teacher put a few movies on. It's unlikely to be each and every day.

2 movies back to back is excessive. My husband is a high school teacher so has many many many more reports to do than a primary school teacher.
He does them during recess, lunch and stays up until 3 am most nights getting them done. During report time i dont see or receive help from him at all because he is so busy. Never have i heard of him blowing off lessons to do it during class time.
