I got the first report card for my daughter at her first grade. The teacher was almost rude by describing my daughter. She had ABSOLUTELY nothing positive to say. Her English and some math were graded as basic (rather than proficient or advanced), none of her achievement were graded as advanced. I spoke with several parents and everyone was describing the similar experience- the teacher was almost openly rude, downgraded a lot the kids. Parents went to complain but the director stated that if we do not like the school we may leave.
Beyond the stress it caused, I feel that my child, along with several other people is profiled to lower track based on her certain categories (income bracket, renter status, english as a second language).
After all though I found that the benchmark tests for the first quater is identical for most of the children (1 mistake in reading and 5 mistake in math). I feel that this is unlikely that several children has similar results in the benchmark test.
The school overall has the best test score possible in whole district, so I feel that complaint to the district as other parents suggest wil not help.
I don't know what to do and feel helpless.
