Subject: Re: Advancement during the school year

The person who made the decision to advance my child was the Principal. He gave my child a Math "Key" which told him he was capable of handling the faster pace of the advance class. I record all conversations in my planner. Knowing this, should I request any information from the teacher/Principal such as to be notified if assignments are missing the day they aren't turned in or if my child isn't writing the assignments completely? Do you think a meeting would be necessary or worth it? Unfortunately, I have looked at this year as a washout because the teacher does not want to teach my child. The teacher stated that my child was a "'C' student and he needs to realize it." She feels that he thinks too much of himself because he sees himself as an "A" student and has set that as his goal.
