I'm tired of school principals not willing to accept that their staff might be dysfunctional. My son injured his head while performing in a race during P.E. His teacher saw the injury take place and did not intervene to send him to the nurse. My son hesitated going to the nurse because on prior nurse visits she would welcome him at the door with " You again, what are you doing? Trying to get out of class."
I would tend to think that her primary concern would be to assess him and ask health-related questions. Not our nurse at my elementary school. The nurse's job is now to administrate the kids back to class or the playground and not to help with their injuries. I've tried to get some of my concerns resolved, but the principal stands by his personal beliefs on the situation -- like all bureaucratic officials.
Let's just pray that nothing of greater adversity or danger approaches my elementary school because the nurse and principal would just send our kids back to class or the playground instead of protecting our children.
