What does this mean?

Our school year is over for two weeks now. Today (saturday morning), i got an email from my daughter's first grade (former) teacher stating that advanced grading she gave to my daughter will not carry over for her second gradae. I thanked her for the information, but decided not to ask her or school principal about it. But what could that possibly mean?

  • It sounds like the teacher may have been grading your daughter differently than most of the students. Is your daughter advanced or possibly behind grade level, making her personal learning goals different from the majority of the students?? I would ask the teacher for more clarification- simply let her know you're not clear on what the email means.

  • The teacher hated my daughter. My daughter was far more advanced than she was graded by this teacher. This teacher never clarified or explained anything to us. Thats why i do not see any point toask her again.

  • I'd ask. I'd assume that she graded your daughter harder than the other kids.

  • Just email her back and ask her.

  • I am not going to ask her... That has no point. I have no influence on her grade, the best i could do is to prepare my daughter to her second grade the best way i can. She was treated unfair to extreme at the beginning of the year, by the end of the year she was graded fairly fair, but still underestimated- this is an opinion of several people, including people who never saw her before and had no interest to over estimate her. so the worst could happen she will be graded the lowest at the beginning, better toward the end. Whatever.
