Midterm Exams

Tomorrow Midterm Exams start. Now most American schools don't give first graders a Midterm Exam, but here we do. There would be no way to convince a parent that their kid is failing unless they fail some major test. And even then, they will argue and beg for their kid's grade to be raised from the failing 36% to a passing 70%. "But really, Miss, my son is sooo clever!" they claim. Parents are never biased about their own children.

But my kids should do well, I think. We've reviewed extensively. I've repeated myself over and over and over. It'll be good.
