Two week voting cycle

I feel this approach has several advantages.I feel a change in the voting would add depth the conversation. We are all a passionate group of educators who believe in the…See More

I have parents coming into my classroom today asking how their child is doing in my class. They only have a 95, how can they get a higher grade?Really?This happens over and over again.
