Last year I had a kid for second semester who drove me crazy (I know, we all have that one kid). He had a real authority issue and was the type of kid to go behind your back to get things his way. Well, end of the year his grade in the class was not high enough for me to recommend him to biology. Of course he was upset “I did good in class, I just didn’t do my work.” So, I get my roosters for this year and guess who is in my biology class? And you know what the worst part is? I knew he would do this. I knew that despite the fact that I had talked to councilors that he wasn’t ready for biology, wrote him down for the lower class, and had talked to his mom, that he would end up in biology. What is the point in recommending a kid if they can sweet talk their way into whatever class they want to go into?
