No One Likes School Report Cards

Mar 1, 2008
The one word that strikes terror in the minds of school going children is report card. It almost seems like D-Day has come when the heavens will fall and all hell will break loose. The constant rebukes of parents who will probably remind you for the rest of the year how you need to catch up on lagging grades if you need to pass and how they want you to do better in school than the girl next door start reverberating in your ears even before the d day arrives.

The irony of the situation is that teachers are also not too fond of the report day. It is like a deadline pending on them. A day by which they need to complete all the calculations and assessments! They also need to enter the details in each and every report for the students and then write comments for all the students. It sure can be a gargantuan task.

These days however, there are software packages available that help in report card making. If the school that you work in does not provide one, it is suggested that you go ahead and buy one for yourself. The amount of extra time that you may find on your hands may be well worth its while. This software require you to just enter the raw information and will then calculate all the averages, percentiles and any such measure that you may want to.

On the other hand there is should be attempts by the teachers, students and parents together to try and not make the report card day a terror. This is a day when you should be evaluating your childs progress and understanding where your role starts in the developmental process. Hounding your children about their performance will not lead you anywhere. The grades will not become good all of a sudden and the mental capacity of your child will not increase by nagging.

Instead, you need to understand that there are different people and discovering the kind of person your child is will help you a lot. Try and figure out what interests your child the maximum. It is also possible that your child may be an intelligent person but just not academically oriented.

If you feel that you child is extremely dedicated to studies and is sincere about completing lessons and doing homework but yet is unable to get good marks, you should explore other possibilities. Try and see whether concentrating on a thing for a long time is the issue. Learning disabilities could be another issue. The problem may be a simple one and may have to do with weak eyesight or hearing capacity. The solution to that obviously is very simple but you may never be able to find that out unless you try and do some investigation.

The most important thing, however, is that you need to stop making report cards a monster and try and view them in a positive light.
