Please don't give my child an "A"

by the parent of a gifted child

Please don't give my child an "A"
He learned nothing at school today.
No high-order thinking, no discoveries made
Well, they said, it's only 5th grade.

Please don't give my child an "A"
He learned nothing at school today.
The books are too easy, the math is no fun,
While waiting for others, the homework was done.

No struggle, no challenge, no reason to learn,
Each year is the same, it's an "A" he will earn.
"Terrific" said the teacher, "Fantastic" said the aide,
"Bored" said the student, and that's where he stayed.

So, please don't give my child an "A"
It's the worst thing you can do,
It's not the present but future I fear,
When struggle and challenge is new.
