That couldn’t happen these days because if you want to see your kid’s report card you have to see it online at the school district’s Web site, which I think is unfair to those who may hot have Internet access.
My folks always knew when the cards were due, and they were waiting for me when I got home. In addition, they had to sign the card before I took it back to school.
Easy, just print up a new one.
When I was in high school, they printed all of the report cards on the printer in the computer lab, with a fancy checkerbox border, all done on a dot matrix printer. This was back in the early 80’s, and when my sister came home with bad grades, we had a couple of hours before mom and dad got home from work to write a quick program and print a new report card on the computer at home… It looked identical except a few D’s and F’s were turned into C’s…
and here I thought that Brad was a little slow.
The washing machine ate my report card!
They aren’t report cards anymore. Now they’re called progress reports.
