Let My People Go!

As I mentioned, Parker got sick of sitting in boring classes.
He applied for early graduation............2 1/2 months past the deadline.

I feel a little bit like my life has turned into the Ferris Bueller movie!


One of the requirements is that HE had to write a paragraph detailing why he should be allowed to graduate.

Another requirement is to have your parents write a paragraph explaining why they support the decision for the student to graduate early.

Here is mine -
"We mostly support Parker’s desire to graduate early. I kind of want him to stay because it’s six hours of free babysitting and I know where he is during the day. But you and I both know that he is just there killing time with stoners, losers and tramps.

Seriously, the school was phenomenal when Trammell attended. And then I blamed Garrett’s intelligence and study skills when it seemed he wasn’t getting the same quality education that Trammell received. But now, I realize that I need to apologize to Garrett. The school has slipped. Parker is bored out of his skull. He’s no dummy. He wants to maintain straight A’s and he wants to be in a stimulating atmosphere. He loves his AP classes. But he has enough smarts to realize that taking ALL AP classes would cut into longboarding time and any kind of social life.

Every day is a battle to get him to go to the “regular” classes. The students are unmotivated. The teachers are disorganized and undemanding. When he gets to class and he is one of just a few kids who have actually done the homework, he is disgusted that the teacher then allows the kids to spend the class period completing the homework that he responsibly completed last night. He spends those periods surfing the web for airfares to longboard races and designing custom boards. Why not let him do that in the comfort of his own home?

Our relationship with the high school is no longer mutally beneficial. He isn’t learning anything. It’s time to move on.......or I could just excuse him from all the useless classes on a daily basis.  It's up to you.

Sincerely,
Gina Cox"

Ferris Beuller was my favorite movie in high school. Of course, that was from a high schooler's point of view, not a mother's. I'm anxious to hear how your letter goes over. ;)

Let him go. My daughter was bored out of her skull in high school. She's working her tail off in honors college, but she does like it.

I hope Parker gets to graduate early! That's so bad that the school doesn't offer anything more stimulating.
