My Kid is Better Than Your Kid

Unfortunately this photo isn’t good enough quality to read the extremely large banner/bumper sticker below the New Jersey license plate. That’s what happens when you take a photo from the car (don’t worry, I took the photo while a passenger).

The banner reads:

Proud parent of

Perfect SAT score – 2400

  1. This is absolutely revolting!

    Although I would never put a bumper sticker on my car that reads, “My child made the honor roll”, I “support” such “mild” bumper stickers that boast of an accomplishment toward which most students should strive. At one school (that shall remain nameless) my kids attended, the names of students who scored points in athletic games against other schools were always mentioned in the weekly bulletin. Academic accomplishments were rarely mentioned. I felt such policies had a detrimental effect on school culture. Within a school, especially small schools, academic accomplishments, including the posting of perfect SAT scores, should be celebrated very publicly. Outside of school, the proclamation of individual accomplishments of their children by parents should be much more muted.

  2. I thought Mark’s mom lived in Chicago?
