Dear Mom....

It's hell your child busted his butt (maybe he did), and "only" got a B.

You can work very very hard and you top out at a B+ or C+. Just because you worked hard doesn't me you should get an A for effort. The A is for actually learning and knowing the material.

What my DD's high school does if the parents push it, they let the kid take the AP class and let them melt like the Hindenburg. My nephew just finished AP calculus with an A. He was also in a gifted and talented program and maths are his jam. A student who struggles to get a B in regular calculus, will drown in AP.

My district will not let a kid take an summer course to get into an AP class, especially math. The CC classes around here aren't as rigorous as the regular fall/winter university courses. A kid could take a calculus fall university course and challenge to get into AP calculus. Very few do.

Enjoy your summer Angelo, you earned it!
