My assessment? Not going to hold too much weight to the feedback given. As the teacher explained that there were 5 levels that each child could be on but she doesn't rate above a three because in future classes if they'd already reached a 5 it would seem as if the child wasn't growing, I pretty much shut down. My ire was rising pretty quickly as I tried to understand the faulty logic that I was listening to. Rather than express my disdain at the methodology, I simply listened nodded my head and silently disagreed the system. For me taking the road of least resistance is best at this juncture because I know that my son is learning and that really is all that matters.
At the end of the day as long as he is on target with meeting all of his milestones I am not worried about a thing. And I also know that in six months we will be leaving this particular school to go to another one. My son is happy, well-adjusted and quite bright. I don't need a piece of paper to confirm what I already know - he is two for goodness sake! I have enough years ahead of me to be concerned about grades, for now he is having fun, talking up a storm and loving every minute of "school."
