Am I the only one who does not thinkthis woman is some terrible terrible tyrant? Apparently we can talk at length on the internet about things we think are wrong or harmful at any college in the world, but if we’ve got a child enrolled there? Better shut your mouth, lady!

I don’t even have kids and I don’t think this woman is “helicoptering” or “butting in”. If she were simply a local citizen who had heard about this course and had an issue with it, no one would be talking about her the way they are. They wouldn’t say, “This is between teacher and student. Adult to adult. She’s overstepping and overbearing.” They’d say, “This lady thinks something harmful is happening at this school. Lets see what it is.” and then make our judgements about the assignment. Instead everyone’s just ripping this lady apart. Is it probably embarrassing to her daughter? Yeah. But if I’m entitled to an opinion on a shitty assignment and probably shitty teacher, then she is too.

Am I so totally off base? Am I the unreasonable one here? Are parents obligated to shut their mouths about things happening at their kid’s colleges?
