An Arizona woman said her 8-year-old daughter was humiliated to receive the “Catastrophe Award” from her teacher for giving the most homework excuses.

So you decide .... was this the right way to address a problem with homework ?

Christina Valdez said her daughter, Cassandra Garcia, received the colorful card from her teacher May 18th at Desert Springs Academy in Tucson.

Here's how it read:

“You’re Tops! Catastrophe Award. Awarded to Cassandra Garcia. For Most Excuses for Not Having Homework,”and was signed by the Teacher with the date and a smiley face .

The child's Mother said  “I think it’s cruel and no child should be given an award like this. It’s disturbing”

So our question this morning is ....did the Teacher deal with a "homework" problem correctly ?
