A private school in New York raised some eyebrows for reportedly offering to send parents a second report card with higher grades on it.
The letter to parents from the Yeshiva Ketana school of Long Island is sparking controversy after it made its way onto Twitter.
The letter advises parents that they should use “great discretion” before even letting their son view his report card.
“If after reviewing the enclosed report card, you would like us to develop a second version of this report card for your son with higher grades, please call.”
The letter also notes that students should not see their grades without "parental permission and guidance."
The school says the letter could have been worded better.
