Our daughter Ingrid who is a First Division Soccer Player and who last month
won a trophy at a tournnament for Best Offensive Player out of 160 children
12 teams has learned today at the age of ten ''what price is to be paid'' when
one speaks out. because of the dificulties we had had with this GYM teacher
because of her open discrimination against the girls in the past, Ingrid's
was a C+ which automatically prevents her from obtainning the First Place
Honors she would have been entitled to otherwise. Withount our knowledge she
approached her teacher and asked her to please allow her to re-take the test
assign her x-credit and was told no. The classroom teacher also approached her
and with the same results. Can anyone give us some ideas as to how to begin
on this one? Ingrid needs a half point. This teacher told us in a meeting we
held over the first incident, and who had the Assistant Superintendent and
coordinator that ''she had the school records'' to prove'' that girls were not
as good
in GYM and that all they (the girls) knew what to do best in her GYM class was
''squeal''. The Superintendent turned red. She told us later ''she felt so
over this teacher's comments.
