    It can't be described as a Republican stronghold.

    Nor can it be described as a liberal one

    Because yours was the most recent one and yours can actually be proved wrong. I doubt it was the result of left wingers but I can't prove that the people who set the policy at the school weren't liberals. I can prove that Port Washington is not a Republican stronghold.

    Don't take my nonresponse as an endorsement of his post.

How does simply marking the response wrong and ignoring it going forward improve his ability to do math? That doesn't make any sense at all. Furthermore, I have very serious doubts the child gets to retake questions on the standardized test, meaning the score he gets on that test is based off his initial answers.

    Giving the child the opportunity to see where the error was and correct it provides the student the ability to not only learn from the mistake but to understand the logic behind the problem as well.
    You're right. You know my child better than I do. My bad.

    To coin a phrase,... they'll have to pry my wiffle-ball from my cold dead hands.

    It has nothing to do with knowing your child but rather knowing the process of education. In that, you are correct. Your bad.
