In Re R.W. (Cal. Ct. App. - April 8, 2008)

I understand that this is a dependency case, in which we're (sadly) used to seeing some pretty atrocious facts. For that reason, I can understand and appreciate the following sentence from Justice Fybel's opinion, which nonetheless made my ears perk up, both as a parent and as an educator:

"R.W.'s grades at every school have generally been good, usually C's and B's, with some A's, a few D's and some F's in physical education."

I guess it's all about how high you set the bar.
