Girl, 8, Gets 'Award' For Homework Excuses! Mom Goes Bonkers!
"An Arizona woman said her 8-year-old daughter was humiliated to receive the `Catastrophe Award` from her teacher for giving the most homework excuses.
Christina Valdez said her daughter, Cassandra Garcia, received the colorful card from her teacher May 18 at Desert Springs Academy in Tucson.
`You`re Tops! Catastrophe Award. Awarded to Cassandra Garcia. For Most Excuses for Not Having Homework` the award reads."
Parents and teachers rain compliments on students, even when they don`t deserve them. "Oh, Timmy you`re so gifted" a teacher gushes when the little brat brings dog excrement to school for "Show & Tell." Newsflash: Not every kid is special, many are just plain dumb or ignorant.
Thank goodness for a teacher with the commonsense not to pretend that every one of her young charges is destined to be a Rhodes Scholar. The little girl deserved to be humiliated for not doing her homework.
The mother got all bent out of shape because the dubious award her daughter received doesn`t reflect well on her. The mom should shut the hell up, and make sure her lazy daughter does her homework.
