Does this seem right to you...
My daughter (2nd grade) is struggling in school because she's slower than the other kids.. not mentally slower, but she reads & writes slower to make sure she gets it. The Problem: At school they have these big workbook type things and they have to get their work done in class or they lose their recess(es) for the next day until the work is finished, but they aren't allowed to bring their workbooks home to finish because they expect the kids to forget or lose them. I'm not sure about other mom's out there but I usually make sure everything is accounted for in their bags before they head to school the next day so they don't forget or lose anything. My daughter isn't the only one with the problem, apparently there is a list of kids who are also struggle with their work load. I don't think it's right that they work these kids so hard then punish them for not finishing because they aren't given more time. I mean just imagine they get all this work in one day, they don't finish and can't take it home, so the next day they have that work plus any new assignments they get.. I'm afraid that my daughter (along with the other kids) are going to end up falling so far behind because of this.
