My 6th grade daughter did not fill out her agenda book. Her writing teacher sent her to "Exile Island" (a spot in the hallway) for the entire class as punishment. (She is failing all classes -- was honor roll last year.) She missed the entire class period and did not get the assignment for the next day -- that meant that next days assignment was a zero. Also the Social Studies teacher gave her a 25% for class participation (5/20). Doesn't that seem unreasonably low? In the parent/teacher meeting last week this same teacher said that she participated in class and gave good answers. This really is bothering me -- I don't know what to do about it.
