target: DURHAM DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD: Director of Education Martyn Beckett & Communications Manager Andrea Pidwerbecki
we've got signatures,
help us get to 1,000
by March 18, 2013
We, the undersigned, do not agree with the schoolboard's stance of passing our children no matter what. We believe our children should be taught in a manner that reflects on the issues that they will have to deal with in real life.
This includes: ~ Getting 0's for projects/work not handed in. ~ Losing marks for incomplete work, ~ and yes...even failing a grade if they haven't been able to accomplish the goals needed to pass.
This will help reinforce what we teach them at home...that in order to succeed you will have to work hard...not that everything will just fall in your lap.
Please....teach our kids so that the are prepared when they graduate and have to enter the "real world"!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
