Blowing Off the Joneses

“Well stated! I felt the same way about my son, who is now starting third grade. When he was put in second grade, he was placed in an accelerated language arts class. I was so proud, but I would have been proud even if he hadn't been. After three months of homework fights that ended in tears, a son with a general dislike for school, and conferences with a teacher unable to meet his learning needs, I went to the principal and had him pulled out of the accelerated class. I'm a teacher, so it was not an easy decision to make, but you do what's best for you child- you are his best advocate. I'm happy to report that the rest of the year went fantastically, and I'm very proud of what his school labels as average- I know he's more than a grouping of statistics, report card marks, and a file the school keeps. I know this dad will be the same! Good luck!”
