D. came home from school with an ‘Interim Report’ this week.
No concerns, and her grades are good …. except for one thing. Each subject has two grades attached – the predicted which is based on work so far, and the target to which she should aspire. Ordinarily, that would appear fine, yet for one subject, she has a predicted grade of A and the teachers have set her target grade as a B. I’ve told D. she can bunk off school for a few of those lessons if she wants, and maybe to send a little note to the Headmistress saying that she’ll slack off a bit – no point in tiring herself out is there ?
There’s also something called a ‘Parents Consultation’ coming up soon. Now I think they mean what I know as a ‘Parents Evening’, so why not call it that ? I mean, if they want to consult me, then maybe I should charge them for that priviledge ? It’s not as if teachers can do a whole lot when probably every parent wants little changes here and there is it ? They can’t win – but why call it a ‘consultation’ ?
Political Correctness …. Hate that too.
