To me this seems very inappropriate. The grade on an assignment shouldn't have anything to do with your behavior. Boys mature much slower than girls. She should also not be counting a child's behavior in a final grade anyway. That should be dealt with separately. Time outs, taking away activities, seeing the principal, etc. Not the lowering of a grade for work that isn't related to behavior. If my son is misbehaving in the restroom what does that have to do with his grade in handwriting, math, reading, etc. I can understand if they don't think the child would be mature enough to socialize in the next grade, but....
What grade are we talking about here? As the levels get higher, 1st, second, etc. the subjects are more dependent upon knowledge and thus this kind of "grading" will seem even more ridiculous.
I would ask around the school and maybe even the principal, if you are concerned.
