Maybe they should bundle the report cards in with the welfare cheques?

gajacks: The father of one of my students never missed one of his son's basketball games (which is a good thing) but would never make it to a single parent-teacher conference. We even offered to meet him right before or after a game, but he would skip out on those too.


Sports is important. What's anyone ever done with academics? The Lakers ain't payin millions to straight-A students.

Lunaville: In the school district I'm in you can see your child's' grades at any time if you have access to a computer. If you do not have access to a computer, having a paper copy of your child's' report card sent home costs $10 dollars per child. And it really is a mere piece of paper rather than cardstock. I paid despite having a computer because I'm old, old-fashioned, and I wanted to see teacher calculated "final grades" for the given time period.


Did you have it handy or did you visit the ATM Machine and enter in your PIN Number to withdraw cash?

I wonder which kid will let me pretend to be his parent so I can split the card with them.
