A note to power parents of private school children

A mother called to complain today to my wife, a teacher at a prominent DC private school, about her fifth grade son's C grade. The mother repeatedly asked my wife, in all seriousness, "How will I explain to my son that he didn't get an A?"

She explain to her son? Well, I don't know. Possibly she might consider that maybe it's her son who ought to be explaining to her why he wasn't paying attention in class and not studying.
