My son's report card doesn't reflect his abilities. Now What?
My first grade son recieved "C" grades in Math and Language Arts when I know he should have at least "B" or "A" grades.
It is his teacher's first year teaching, and I already spoke to her indicating my distress as he is advanced in these areas, but she doesn't understand my concern. I want his grades to reflect his abilities, but she says she has not observed any exceptional behaviour in these areas. I believe I upset her when we spoke at the parent/teacher interview (i was not unkind), but we did not resolve anything.
I am an educator and have prepared an apology/advice letter that explains how she might better assess her students. Should I send the letter, just apologise or drop it?
Am I over-reacting? I just don't want to look back and say "I wish I had ...".
