I agree this would be a perfect opportunity for you or wintertime to take this poor waif under your wings and demonstrate just how well homeschooling works.
And while your at it explain to me how a RESPONSIBLE parent allows a third grader to go to school that often without completed homework, especially at a charter school which required an application and apparently has a waiting list for some of it's grade levels
It is obvious from the majority of comments I have read so far no one here dealt with nuns in the 60s and 70s. This is nothing compared to that - and everyone of my friends from those days, and I’m still in touch with many of them, would agree. We all turned out just fine.
By 3rd grade we all knew better than to not do our homework.
My daughter was not humiliated in class last year because she didn’t turn in her homework - but she sure as heck was humiliated when she got an F on her interim report card and all of her internet connection was cut off until the quarter report card came home. I made her send an email to her friends telling them why she would not be online for the next 5 weeks. Now that was humiliating. She got her act together and ended the quarter with a B. The following quarter was a solid A and once again she ended the year on the honor roll.
