A Woman’s 8-Year-Old Daughter Was Assigned 137 Assignments Due on the Same Day, so the Woman Confronted the Rude Teacher

A woman’s eight-year-old daughter had recently transitioned to remote learning, with the school providing tablets for homework to be completed on the same day. When the woman realized that her daughter had been assigned 137 assignments to be completed on the same day, she had to take action. Here is what she had to say:

When the daughter returned home with her tablet, the mother was shocked to find that the girl had been assigned a whopping 137 assignments, all due on the same day.

To her further disbelief, the woman had been informed that if her daughter did not keep up with the assignments, she risked being held back a year.

Overwhelming Expectations

Adding to the challenge were six mandatory Zoom meetings scattered throughout the day. These commitments severely restricted the time available for completing the mounting assignments.

To make matters worse, access to assignments was cut off after 4 pm and unavailable during weekends. This meant that the mother and her daughter had very limited time to complete the work.

The woman and her daughter toiled tirelessly, commencing their day as early as 5 a.m. and continuing until the late afternoon.

The intensity of this academic grind left the woman with very little free time outside of assisting her daughter. This meant that her other child was left with no help with his own homework.

A Teacher’s Indifferent Response

During one of the mandatory meetings, the daughter shared her overwhelming feelings with her teacher. This teacher, known for having an abrasive demeanor, responded callously, saying, “Well, life isn’t fair, is it?”

Unconvinced by the teacher’s apology, the woman confronted her on the video call again, expressing her dissatisfaction. She warned of contacting the school to address the teacher’s treatment of the students.

The woman’s husband, however, took a different view of the situation. “He said I’m being a Karen and that the teacher is probably just overwhelmed”, the woman recounted. “I told him that I truly don’t care if she is overwhelmed. She chose this career and it’s hard on everyone currently but that gives her no right to be rude to students and give them 137 assignments.”

Asking for the Internet’s Perspective

The mother headed online, venting her anger with the school and asking for the thoughts of online strangers. “What kind of school gives 137 assignments and makes all of them due on the same day, let alone to an 8-year-old??”, one person commented angrily. 

It Must be a Misunderstanding

Many readers pointed out the absurdity of the 137-assignment workload. “I find the specifics of this all a bit hard to believe”, one commenter stated. “It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me and I hope you can meet with school administration with a level head to put all the pieces together.”

Just Don’t Do it

One person suggested that the mother and daughter simply do not comply with the teacher’s insane demands. “She’s 8, right? What are they gonna do if y’all just don’t do all 137 assignments?”
