It was parent's evening for our graduating class. I didn't have a lot of interest from parents (I teach IB HL maths), I imagine most parents realise that it is all down to their off-spring to come up with the goods now. However I did have one appointment with the parents of a girl who got a grade 7 in her mock exam! (She is a smashing student, you could not wish for better) I have absolutely no problems with telling a parent how wonderful their off-spring is when they are (Hoping I'll be in that position when my own grow up) but the mother was trying to tell me that her daughter was weak at maths, and implying that the IB HL exam must be too easy if she can get a 7 by only getting 82% in her mocks!!! What would/do you do?
