My daughter has always been good at algebra last Christmas during a break they changed teachers apparently the first semester teacher called the child a bad game or something anyhow she was transferred out of the classroom into another class.
The second semester teacher only teaches in groups my daughter is shy but is still good at math does not like doing the group projects for everything.
This last semester she failed math I explained to the counselor that he didn't really appreciate the groups no individual work except for test is it fair to her to have to do everything in a group setting?
What is your take on teachers doing things in groups not letting the child show their individual strengths and weaknesses?
She is in the 8th grade.

There has to be more than just group work involved. There are tests, quizzes, homework, etc. that are done individually. I think you need to make an appt. to talk to the teacher, the counselor, the principal, etc. Get to the bottom of it. Something doesn't sound right here. No class or subject is ALL group work.
