Re: Complaint Letter against [Name of Teacher]

Dear Principal’s Name,

This letter is a formal complaint about my child’s, [Name of Child], sixth grade teacher, [Name of Teacher]. It appears that the teacher is not prepared or qualified to teach students at this grade level.

I am willing to help my child with his homework, but he never seems to have any. When I ask him if we can go over the daily lessons he is confused about the subject matter.

I have made several appointments to talk to her about [Name of Child], but she has cancelled each one. 

I have visited the school on several occasions and seen her talking on her mobile phone during class time while the students are left unattended.

I am not insisting on a strict regimen at school, but I would like to see my child advance in the subjects required for his grade level. 

I believe this is not only detrimental for my son and the other students in the class, but it also reflects badly on the school as a whole.

I can be reached at [555-123-4567] or at []. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
