B Flat Major Scale

I've learned that some students don't like this scale. Unfortunately, the last note (counting to eight) makes it the "tunning" note. They complain that it's too high (in their register), which isn't. And some have actually complained to the principal. Saying that I'm "disciplining them too harshly!"
As a musician, and if you wanted to play professionally you have to know how to tune. But because of the principal in the middle school (one of the 2) I'm teaching at. They can't learn their scale properly. I can't teach properly. I have to teach "after school" because I'm not allowed to "discipline."
This makes me sad only because what's next your kids can't eat anything that's not organic? And I grew up eating nothing but organic foods. Honestly I love the fact that I have a strict practice schedule (3 hours minimum) of playing my instrument. Otherwise I wouldn't be half as good as I am. But the parents are more ignorant than an ape. I ate all organic foods, and kept it that way. My students that are old enough (pardon the word) are pisssssed.
All they tell me is teach me more without them knowing...which I can't without parent consent.
It's like saying mages can't use their spells.
I can't teach like this.
And I love my duty. I honestly do. But some people are way too selfish to understand.
So until some parents learn that their kids love what I teach, I can't teach properly.
Quid pro quo....
