Who didn't show up? Mom? Kid?
Whoops - the kid. Mom is coming in to meet on Thursday.
The kid is actually doing a bit better in class BUT he still needs a consequence for his ridiculous behavior during the quiz. My school policy is that if they don't show up to detention it turns into 2. I'm going to give him one more chance next week to come.
If the school policy is that if they don't show up they get two, then stick to the school policy. Giving him another chance erodes your authority as a teacher, and makes him think you don't mean what you say.
Good call -- thanks. I'll have him come Tues./Wed. next week.
