Bryant parents complain about school grades

Posted By on Wed, Feb 23, 2011 at 7:00 AM

Trouble in paradise, Saline County-style. Interesting report on Fox 16 last night about unhappy parents at a Bryant School Board meeting. They said teachers at Springhill Elementary aren't giving high enough grades to their children.

"My daughter is normally an honor roll student she never gets anything less than a B and when I got her progress report it had all F's and a D," says parent Tonya Rumbaugh.

Parents say it’s not the student’s poor performance that is causing the bad grades. Rather, the teachers are not grading all of the assignments. Some students say there is so much homework that teachers are not taking all of their work into consideration.

Fox 16 couldn't get anyone on the school side to talk about the unhappiness in Lake Wobegone. Sounds like it's worth following.
