The Teacher Giving A Treat to Individual's Who Make the "Grade"?

Evidentely the teacher told the kids if they passed their Diebels, they would get a candy bar. NOT the whole class, but the individual students who passed. I understand she was trying to motivate them, but it upsets me because I feel like she is also wagging it in the kids face who didn't pass. And yes, my son didn't pass...by 4 f'ing words. He came home crying, not because he didn't get a candy bar, but because everyone saw that he didn't get one-so everyone knows he "failed"!

I don't see the problem here. Your kid isn't going to win everything.

I don't see an issue with what the teacher did.

Geez, teachers are damned if the do, and damned if they don't.

How would you feel if every little move you made at work was analyzed by 30 different sets of parents, who all had different opinions?
