This happens over and over again. I wonder why they're here. I don't think it's to make themselves feel better about how great their child is doing in school. I also don't think that they are very worried about the 95 not being a 98. I believe it's to show their child that they are fully invested in…

I am now a member of classroom 2.0. I joined the instructional technology group because it is similar to the class I am taking.
