Going through High School Woes..
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
Yesterday, I posted about my failure in the binge department. Well, last night I was good.
I am finding out more about my oldest, Mary's, grade issues. It seems that 3 important vocab sheets are missing and she is getting an "F" because of it. Total surprise, because she likes English. Naturally, I am angry and confront her with this, only to discover that she is angry also. She swears she handed these in. I must admit...usually I do not side with the kid in these discussions. However, I SAW her work on these. (and heard the complaints.) Also, she has no other missed assignments.
I tell her to talk to her teacher and I contact the school guidance counselor. He found that one of Mary's "missing" assignments was already graded and sent back! He is totally on Mary's team now! Unfortunately, we are having trouble getting this teacher to pay attention. Apparently, she is having family issues and this is affecting her job. (Why I homeschool...anyone?)
Hopefully this will be resolved quickly.
