Mom upset child made honor roll with C's, D's

Updated:

PASCO COUNTY, Fla. - Any parent would be happy to see their child make honor roll, but one Florida mother is upset her child was given the award because she said he didn't earn it. 

Beth Tillack said when she first saw her son's report card she thought Pasco Middle School had made a mistake. Her son's report card had a "C" and "D" letter grade.

However, his teacher wrote a note saying "good job," drew a smiley face, and wrote that he had made the honor roll.

"The bottom line is there is nothing honorable about making a D. I was not happy, because how can I get my child to study for a test when he thinks he's done enough," said Tillack.

The school's principal said the district's honor roll is based on a point system, which means students who get A's can earn enough points to offset an F to make the honor roll.

But, the school district is now considering changing that policy.
