Meeting "E"'s parents at 12:40 today. They're not happy about his Math comment on his report card. They've cancelled twice. I write these report card comments "under the gun", the reports due to administration Feb. 10, to go home two weeks later. I often feel I don't know enough about a child's work and so write something vague. Now, six weeks later, I am explaining those vague comments to the parents. Won't miss this chore in the future.
