report card season

I have computed and turned in my grades for the quarter. i failed 4 kids because i had no grades for them because they don't come to school, 2 kids because their performance in my class is totally sub-par, and 1 kid due to lack of work done because he was suspended...now i am stuck to wonder whether i was obligated to let the suspended kid make up more work while he was out? and should i let a kid take tests from home if they aren't being home schooled? what about quizzes or labs?

parent teacher conf. will be starting in full force soon

expect mass whining from me.

If the kids suspended then he shouldn't get any homework or tests of any kind. That's why it's a punishment. Granted the kid won't think it is cause he doesn't have to be at school but he won't finish in time either.

This is where it'll all come down to the parenting. If the parents don't see it as punishment then the kid will probably keep being a screw up.

ah the work requests are for my favorite thug, the felon. the one i still vaguely fear. my challenge comes into play when i tell you he qualifies as an educationally exceptional child (special ed). his momma says he is challenged because he is bi-racial, i say he is challenged because he is a thug.

My nephew is mulatto (sp?) and he was taking college courses in 7th grade.

He also just did 6 months for carrying crack for someone else. Came out and two months later got busted again.

My sister is the worst mother a kid could have.

So it's not so much the racial thing as it is a home life thing. If she would have cleaned up her life and took care of him it'd be different.

Too many people use the racial card in my opinion.

yea, this kid kills me. he is seriously smart, but his mother is a psychologist, and feels that the best thing she ever did for her son was remove him from private schools and turn him loose on my lovely little corner of thug land (public school). her son is an instigator...he is the one who starts problems. he has been suspended once for fighting (10 days), once for having a bullet in school and displaying it in a way that was threatening to a teacher (10 days) and this time for posturing a fight (6 days). now none of these are related to him being bi-racial. they are all however related to him being a full on thug.

the fact that both of this kid's parents are well educated but blind to his bullshit tell me that it is more than just homelife, it is him trying to be the ultimate tough guy. i just wonder where he is on the gang chain of command.
