My kids are stressed by this system. They have a difficult time determining what it takes to succeed and earn the grade they are trying to achieve. Is the SBG system being used in your kids' classes? What are your kids saying?
I know the feeling. My child has been so stressed by this system he has become physically ill. As a parent it is very difficult to watch and know I can't do anything to make it better. I am so happy I was referred to this website. I hope our collective efforts help our children and their futures.
This is all caused by the state adopting Common Core. There is a Facebook group Stop Common Core in Iowa. Join the group. There is a lot of information.
My students are thriving under this new system. I appreciate that my son, who does not learn as quickly as his best friend, has a chance to be successful rather than left in the dust.
Tell us how SBG is impacting your students' behavior, attitude, study habits, grades, stress levels, etc.
