Teacher Appreciation Week is often seen as lacking authenticity and genuine appreciation. Many teachers feel that it is just window dressing and lip service from administrators. The timing of Teacher Appreciation Week, at the end of the school year, is seen as convenient but also a busy and stressful time for teachers. Some teachers feel that they receive more appreciation from their students and parents on a daily basis. There is a need for more meaningful gestures of appreciation, such as acknowledging teachers' accomplishments or providing bonuses.

The lack of funding and the decline of parental involvement in schools contribute to the perceived lack of genuine appreciation. The conversation explores the disconnect between parents and teachers in the education system. There is a lack of involvement and apathy from both parties, which has led to a decline in enrollment and a decrease in teacher appreciation. Teacher Appreciation Week is seen as a superficial gesture that does not address the systemic issues in education. The conversation highlights the need for meaningful appreciation throughout the year and the importance of recognizing the value of teachers' work. The retention crisis in the teaching profession is also discussed, with the recognition that teachers need to feel appreciated and supported in order to stay in the profession.
