Finally, a parent question with an easy answer
It is now the middle of the semester, which means parents are suddenly pulling themselves out of their comas and realizing that their kids do not have the grades that the parents desire, no matter how many times we have contacted them about this fact.
So a colleague received a communication from a parent that asked why the kid had so many zeroes in the grade book.
"Because the student did not do the work," was the reply.
Kid told mom that through some vicious campaign, the teacher had never given him the assignments. Then she contradicted herself and said he couldn't find them any more. So where can she get all of the assignments for the entire next unit?
Easy. From your kid. All you've gotta do is ask him for him. Asking every day might do it.
