I made a parent cry today…

November 4, 2013

That was a first.

I started calling parents of students who are failing.  This one kid is in danger of failing my AP class for the semester.  I told mom that and told her that we might need to switch her son to an on-level class for the rest of the semester.  She does not want to move him because she wants the AP on his transcript for college.  I tried to explain to her that it is more important that he get credit for the class to graduate.

I do feel sorry for her, but at the same time, which is more important?  I guess we are not in agreement on that.
