I'd like the opinion of this board's members about what happened here. This woman is in a tough spot with her personal life and is leaving her kid in the hands of the school. The school says they tried things like calling when a student is absent and arranging for parent-teacher conferences, but Mom said they never happened. Where's Dad? Schools can only do so much, they can't make a kid attend classes or study. At the same time, they promoted this kid through the ranks giving Mom the impression all was OK. Worse still, half of the students scored lower than this kid which makes me think there's either something really wrong with the school, or there's something wrong with the way kids in this district are raised, and to tell you the truth, I have no idea which one correct. They both could be wrong for all I know. Thoughts?
