School is becoming ridiculous
My 10-year old came home with science homework and she's drawn a picture of a bean and explained the parts and processes that make a bean grow. One word which confused even the teacher: Cotyledon.
I had to look it up in the dictionary, but when the teacher can't even pronounce the word it doesn't set a good example of tutor competence.
Really do feel they are trying to push these youngsters too hard. This time next year she'll be in high school, and personally think it's more appropriate.
