For some students, academic survival is exactly as Calvin portrays it here:

Keep other people’s expectations low so it’s easier to impress your parents when you do well, and easier to avoid confrontation or consequences when you come home with a C.

If you think about it, I’m sure you’ll come up with a list of adults who do the same thing! Maybe it’s “Occupational Survival” instead of just academic…

 As a parent, what kind of academic expectations do you have for older children? How do you help your child rise to meet those expectations?
