My 8th grade son missed 1 day of school. On that day they began watching a movie. There was a list of questions required to complete based on THAT day's viewing.
My son talked with the teacher asking how to make that up as he's never seen the movie. The teacher refused to let my son view the movie at school (lunch, study hall, after school, whatever) & told him he'll just have to youtube it at home.
What is your opinion on that?
I feel that he had no right to assume we even had decent enough internet to do that, (live in a tiny town with ONE internet option besides dial up...most have only dial up) plus since it was an in school thing, he should provide an opportunity for my son to make it up IN school. Plus, my son has a lot of homework that often takes all evening and we are a busy family. We rarely watch TV during the week yet now I'm supposed to find this movie & find time for him to sit & watch it??
