Parent / Teacher Interviews

I have Dolly's parent/teacher interview today. Why do they call them that? Who interviews whom? What happens if we don't pass as suitable parents for the school, does poor shamed Dolly have to find a new school?

At least on this occasion I am on the right side of the desk. I never particularily enjoyed 'conducting' these events. You never really knew what to expect from one interview to the next. Like the time I was hit broadside by a parent who resented me taking time off for maternity leave and left me, and all the other parents and staff in the hall, in no doubt about it!
