Roadrunner Posted January 8, 2012 Share Posted January 8, 2012 I had a very interesting conversation with my friend's kiddos yesterday. Apparently 50% of the middle school kids (the same school my kids are suppose to attend) have straight As, maybe even a higher percentage of kids. How is that possible? :confused: We usually had 1 or 2 kids out of 35 managing to get straight As growing up and it was haaaard work. 50% of the school??? I am speechless. My friend thinks that parents here are very involved and that's why kids do so well. I don't care how involved parents are. If 50% of those kids are getting As, the standards just aren't there. After that conversation, my husband finally said he would seriously consider letting me homeschool kids from grade 5 until high school.
