JSH1968 asks:

Students being ostracized in class.

Our daughter is in 4th grade, her teacher had a pizza party after testing, if a student did not increase 1 years growth they could not attend the party. 3 students were going to have to go to the library while the rest of the class had the party. Short story, " we contacted individuals and all kids were able to attend the party", but during the party the teacher gave soda and candy bars to all the students but 6 of them, these kids had no idea of why they didn't receive any. Our daughter was one of them but she showed a years growth, we believe she was left out due to our involvement of making sure no child was left out. What should we do?

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk,

It would appear that your school is using incentive programs to help motivate children.  However, the implementation appeared to have been flawed.  Please consider going to the school, including the administration, to express your concerns and perhaps help with other incentive programs that will be more inclusive and productive.

Good luck!
