Cartoons about Grades and Report Cards

For this month’s cartoons, I have selected a bunch of cartoons that tickle me about the onerous tasks of judging student performance and behavior on a daily basis and deciding what mark to put down in report cards. Anyone who has taught in K-12 or higher education knows well the tensions, the periodic wincing, and doubt that accompanies report cards and grading tests and essays. So here are a few cartoons that I hope will give readers a chance this summer to chuckle or grin before teachers and students return to school  Enjoy!

    My favorite is the print version of this Peanuts routine on grading a sculpture.

      Ah, Laura, I wish I had the print version to include. Lucy’s monologue on getting a “C” on a coat-hanger sculpture is superb. Thanks.
