I disagree totally with you. My children are nearly out of the elementary school system and though k-2 asked for parent involvment, 3rd grade was give us your donations and keep your opinions to yourself.
That's probably the problem. Teachers (or any human, for that matter) don't want your opinions unless they ask for it. They want your help.
We parents have a bad habit of looking out for the best interests of our child only and forget that a teacher has the interests of an entire classroom to deal with.
If you are supportive, generous and sincerely looking to help the teacher and staff then I can't imagine any teacher, administrator or school that would hinder that.
If all you want to do is offer your "opinion" how how nest to educate a classroom, you will be deservedly turned away.
So, I suggest you look in the mirror and give it another try. You child deserves it.
