The first night of conferences is complete. I was worried that I was going to have lots of outraged physics parents. I only had one. Some others had questions that I was able to explain away, but there was one that was on a witch-hunt. Her daughter had learned how to play the game of school. I've changed the rules. She has gone home crying because I won't tell her if she is right or not. *sigh* I am proud of myself though. I stood my ground. I explained that this technique works. I have studies to prove it. Her daughter just needs a little more time to adjust to the way things are. If she is that frustrated she needs to come talk to me. (Of course the girl has told me none of this!)
Oh well. You can't please all of the people... Most parents thought it was awesome and told me their kid can't stop talking about Physics class. I check that as a win!
