Nice parents you've got there…

Today, one of my fourth-graders came up to me and asked, "Can you please not put my test grades in the weekly folders? My mom likes to get mad when I get below a 90." FML

I've heard many stories of smart kids who come from broken homes that get abused when a parent sets an unreasonable grade limit, no matter how good their grade is. Some will even resort to beatings. A teacher I knew would sometimes fabricate a report card for the parent to be satisfied and keep the legitimate report card on the DL. Maybe find kindness in your heart and do that for the poor fella.

This is an FML for that kid. I'm really sorry for them.

That’s really sad. My parents would react the same way if I got below a 100. Wish parents would understand that their kids aren’t perfect.
