Report writing season

Thursday, 29 October 2009 | 3 Comments

Report writing season… ponder kid, ponder kid, write a paragraph of positive when you’d rather be honest, edit, colleague cooperatively corrects copied carelessness, supervisor strikethroughs signify subtle substitutions, remove commas, add c,o,m,m,a,s, throw in a hyp-hen for good measure, correct, copy to system, shorten, review, save, have a life… wait for reports to be published… find report in bin.

By "report" here, I mean the report card written by teachers and given to students - twice a year. Not a student project.
