As a previous teacher writing regular ed report cards and special education progress reports and now a parent, I have to say I hope people see this as a starting point only. I know sometimes it is hard to start the process of writing report cards, but I truly hope that each child is remembered as an individual and that each report card is written with the individual child in mind. Admittedly I cringed when we received my daughter's first report card this year and the only comment was- " she is a pleasure to have in class" . That tells me nothing specific and yes I get there are lot of report cards to write, but I think people can do better.
