Now, this came as a shock to me because just the other day, her mom was bragging about how "Mimi" got all A's and B's on her last report card. My husband and I told her how proud we are of her-- which we were... and still are. But, now I have to question... "How does a child who does not possess the basics get A's and B's in 8th grade? Surely it isn't because the school systems have failed this child. (insert sarcastic comment here)
Not to mention but.... what the sam hell is wrong with her mother?!?! Why has she not demanded a better education for her daughter? Why hasn't her mother sought tutoring for her? Why (so many why's to ask at this point)??? I have a feeling that I know the answers to these questions, which may very well be the reason why I'm not even going to bother to ask. It would probably result in me going spider-monkey on this woman and beating the stupid out of her.
I will do everything I can in my power to try and make sure she gets a diploma when she graduates High School. Even if it doesn't work out, then no one can say that "Mimi" was completely failed.
It burns me that so many people have failed her-- that so many have allowed her to slip through the cracks. This will not do.
