Some of the ones with A's can't think on their own. They can only spit back memorized material to give the teacher what he/she wants. Grades are a false measurement of intelligence, drive, and/or future success. In addition, not everyone with "C's will grow up to flip burgers. Some of your children's teachers had straight "C's in school. There are many different forms of intelligence, not just academic. In my experience academic intelligence does not translate well into the real world. You can have straight A's in college, but in the workplace, be totally ineffective.
