I do not do report cards. I see a report card as the way an educator communicates to the parents how the child is progressing and a determing factor in promoting a child to the next grade level. I know how my kids are progressing since I am their primary teacher. I am the one who decides whether they have mastered a subject and can move on to a higher level or need to spend more time on that certain subject.
I asked the person in charge of our cover school about this. She said she did not know many who actually did report cards.
The reason I asked this question is my DH seemed to think the kids need to know how well they are (or aren't) doing at regular intervals. I explained to him they find out every single day if they are understanding the subject at hand. He understood my rationale. Then I go to my HS group and it seems they are all doing report cards. Can someone explain to me why you choose to give them?
