I don't know how you were privy to information about students' grades and I don't know why you would want to know about children and their grades if they weren't your children. I would have to question the private school you got such information from and why they would give out such information.Well, I HAVE seen the grade inflation for children in private schools whose parents were significant donors to the administrators of the private school. I HAVE seen private school administrators pressure teachers to inflate grades of certain students. So I know it happens, frequently. Perhaps your daughter is intelligent enought to not need help,as evidenced by her subsequent achievements, and that is a good thing.
Do not lecture me about hard work. I also worked two jobs to pay for my OWN education WHILE I was in college. I was taught to work at an early age and learned to take pride in my work and my ability to do a good job.
No, republikans are not completely responsible for failures in education. But their anti education attitude is one of the biggest contributing factors.
Since you apparently know so much about children with inflated grades, during your snooping did you find out how they did on the SAT and what colleges if any they attended? I don't think there's a way to inflate SAT scores and right there is where the proof is in the pudding. I didn't contribute a penny more than the cost of my daughter's tuition because a private school, college, etc should be run like a business and if a business has to pressure people to be donors in order to keep their business afloat, they shouldn't be in business. I would hate to think my business depended upon "donors", instead we go old school and charge people for the service provided. It may sound simple, but it works for us, it should work for every other business. We're not running a charity, we're running a business therefore "donations" while the concept would be great, just isn't our way.
Speaking of my daughter, UNC Chapel Hill is not in the habit of accepting or teaching students in the medical field based off "inflated" private school grades. Have you heard of MCAT? Well that pretty much weeds out the "inflated grades of any students" and they go on from there and my daughter after testing proved she was "perhaps intelligent enough". Let me guess, you know someone who had inflated MCAT grades?
