UGH! Well, yet another marking period is ending for difficult child - I've been watching her rack up the zero's and F's for missing homework and incomplete projects... And yet again, miraculously, the grades ALL go up at the end as each teacher tacks on glowing "Class Participation" grades and "Extra Credit". So instead of flunking - it's C's and D's. Which, sure is great for difficult child. But why in the world would she ever think it's important to do homework or class projects if teacher after teacher snows her it is completely un-necessary?!?!? I am really just disgusted at our education system.
