Dear Mrs. XXXXXXX
May already know this, but in case of Alex has neglected to tell you, I'm assigning him to detention for 1 hour this Friday, April 22nd. The reason is as follows:
Alex consistently defies me. And during class he contradicted me numerous times when I suggested that the length of one kilometer was greater than that of one mile. Every other student in the class accepted my lesson without argument, but your son refused to believe what I told him, offering such rebuttals as, " You're lying to the class," in commanding other students to question my curriculum.
Although he was correct, Alex's actions show of blatant disregard for authority, and a complete lack of respect for the school. In the future, Alex would be better off simply accepting my teaching without resistance.
Please see to it that your son understands this.
