1. The issue being discussed is that a letter which was written by the principal of ACS (Barker) that was sent out to all the parents of students that are currently studying in ACS (Barker) and ACS (Primary) had been interpreted as pressuring the students to sell tickets for their fund-raising carnival and to buy $50 worth of tickets for their own use.
2. I feel that the parent should have read the letter more carefully since the letter has clearly stated that the principal 'recommended' the students to buy $50 of tickets and not forcing them to buy it. I feel that the parent should have read the letter more properly and if she has misconceptions or questions, she should have called the school's general office and pose this question to the principal and try to solve this misconception personally and not post this letter to Stomp and complain about it. This action will not solve the misconception between them and instead will turn this matter from a molehill to a mountain. Hence, I feel that the parent should try to settle matters between themselves.
