We want to let everyone in the list that we can celebrate a victory which is
nonethess received with mixed feelings. The principal of our school has now
informed us that from now on GYM grades will not have any determination on the
qualifications for honor role. It appears that two other mothers who
unfortunally I do not know complained that their children were not going to
receive academic honors
due to the fact that the GYM teacher gave them "C"....but what makes this
interesting is that the two students concerned were... GIRLS...therefore we
believe that the school acted out of fear because we request that grading
criteria by the GYM teacher be provided to us inmediately. Perhaps the
principal did not like what she saw because we have heard through the
grapevine that the superintendent of
schools, who has proved to be very sympathetic to our concerns, instructed the
principal to look into this matter asap. We also want to share a piece of
that we hope will bring everyone some smiles...we were told by a mother that
the meeting between the principal and one of these ''complaining'' mothers
the principal's secretary wispered to this mother that if this is not resolved
speak to the TITLE IX word is getting around !!!!
