My kids are not being nice this week. Some of my kids are great all of the time, some are awful all of the time. At the end of the grading period you expect students to suck up to you, not yesterday. What has happened to kids that grades don't matter and success is a choice? I am baffled by this and wish there was some way to create intrinsic rewards where there are none. Any ideas?

I want a Chinese mother for a school principal.

Heck yes!
