A Student Rebelling
My junior is rebelling and refusing to do ACT practice tests. She has decided to be defiant. She got a 27 on her first diagnostic test and 27 again after prepping for a month on her own. We got her a private tutor but she refuses to do all the homework and refuses to do a full-length practice test even though she had more than enough time to do so. Her dad decided since she will not give it her all he is canceling the tutor and I cannot find a class for the February test date. She has mostly A's with a rigorous schedule and some ECs and leadership.143 replies
