This parent had an interesting response to his child learning at a school that uses apple products: "I'm sending a WINDOWS laptop that I personally configured to school with my daughter. I will not have my daughter being taught to use an Apple product. I work for a major computer technician company, and I can personally attest to the fact that everything Apple makes is pure garbage. You're hurting the students more than helping them, as every major company uses Windows software. I am also going to be filing a complaint with the school board. I know this is not your fault personally, but I know there is something you could do to stop it."
I am a middle school teacher and I had a student sexually harass me. I filed a complaint and it was sent to HR. The boy was transferred out of my class, but the mother complained to the school that it was my fault because I looked too young to be teaching middle school.
