Overbearing parents target special educators

About 60% of teachers in one well-off Maryland county say they have been harassed by so-called "helicopter" parents, according to the local union's job-satisfaction survey. "The workload is bad, but coupled with over-demanding parents, the job is horrible," said union president Ann DeLacy. "Teachers are leaving teaching because of parents. ... The turnover is incredible. I have teachers who refuse to teach special education." The Sun (Baltimore)
