Julie Marburger teaches in Texas, and she has been pushed to the brink by her students – AND their parents.
When Julie tried to discipline a student in her class, the child called his mother right then and there. Julie says the mom then rudely told her off in front of the students. And that’s when Julie realized she’d simply had enough.
“I have already made the decision to leave teaching at the end of this year, and today, I don’t know if I will make it even that long,” she said following the incident.
She took to Facebook to air her grievances, and her post gained a lot of traction on social media.
Here is Marburger’s Facebook post in its entirety:
“Parents have become far too disrespectful, and their children are even worse,” she said.
She posted pictures from her classroom, showing how students regularly damage items with no regard. These are items she’s forced to purchase herself because she’s been given no classroom budget.
The main thing driving all of the disrespect boils down to the self-entitlement currently promoted within our society.
“People absolutely HAVE to stop coddling and enabling their children,” she says.
