My son (17) is in the graduating class that started a new mandatory course for graduation: Personal Finance. I thought wow, that's great! Too many kids graduating without being able to balance a checkbook or figure up the payment on a credit card.
There's a lot of work that is graded in the class. Tons in fact. He finished up 40 modules so far (just started the 2nd 9 weeks) and a few weeks ago his teacher informed me he was "ahead". This is apparently a self paced course. He does the assignments at his own pace is what the teacher said. Ok... sounds like a disaster ready to happen for most students but I let it be.
Well report cards come out tomorrow, and I see the final grades for the 9 weeks up on the system we look at. In the last week he went from a B in the class to an I (incomplete). WTF?? How do you go from a B to an I in a week??? Especially if you only missed 1 day?
