Subject: Exam grades

I'm a parent of an 8th grade Algebra I student (the advanced Math
class) who has a question for those teachers who teach this Math
level. On the final exam in a class of 11,there were 2 "A's", 2 "B's",
1 "C", 2 "D's", and 4 "F's."
These were not curved grades.  Do you feel the teacher should have
curved these grades?  The four who received the A's and "B's" are
outstanding Math students, who always get A's each marking period.
Most of the children who received the C's and D's and F's have gotten
at least B's every marking period throughout the year in this class.
They are not poor Math students.   How would you feel about these
grades if these were your students?
