Confidentiality: Part of students’ school life
By Vicky Padilla
The definition of confidentiality is that information is intended to be kept a secret, according to Webster’s New World Dictionary.
In accordance, the bond between a parent and a teacher is one where both parties must work to keep a balance. A conversation about students’ grades or behavior should strictly be between both adults. If that argument ever leaked to the student body, that said student could face bullying and unfair judgment. The bullying could arise from the teacher singling out the student or adding more work in a class just to get a rise out of the students. This, in essence, can be classified as bullying and should not be tolerated.
To stop this from happening, students should contact the principal or confront the teacher. To ensure that the student has a fair time at school, the parents need to find a consensus and make sure that the student does not suffer from the situation.
Ultimately, a good relationship between teachers and parents sets the foundation for students’ participation and behavior during a class at school. Confidentiality and a sense of respect are part of the big picture of students’ school life that works both ways. This is an important lesson that the public should know and accept if they have children in school to avoid possible problems in the future.
