[ - ] Aussie mom here (to account for time). I'm getting ready to go out and just realised I have no conditioner, no time to get any and long hair that is super dry and overdue for a cut. Should I use my Shea hand butter for a ten minute treatment? Or olive oil? Before shampoo? 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] For the state tests if a 3 is proficient and 4 is exceeds grade expectations then wouldn't the kids getting 4's have to be about a year a head or maybe gifted? For example 3rd grade students are expected to be reading at the end of the year at P but should kids really aim to be reading at S or T? In math should parents aim to push their kids to learn 4 grade math when the kids are in 3rd grade so they can get a 4 on the state tests? My dc is going to third this year and I can't figure out why a 4 wouldn't be proficient rather than exceeds. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We don't want our daughter to be bored in her classes every day, so we aren't pushing her ahead of grade level. But to keep her a little bit ahead overall, and to keep her from getting bored with the same subjects all of the time, she learns additional subjects outside of school hours. This year she's continuing in a foreign language and is going to a weekly science camp that does topics they don't get to in school. We're more than happy with high 3s, and are trying to reward work and persistence as much as results. [ Reply | More ]

Of course there will always be a few kids who do well at crappy schools (and even this is not true, there are like 90 schools where every single kid failed). But the point is, a good school will help more kids than a crappy one. [ Reply | More ]
