Behavior chart

My son's elementary school teacher has decided to start giving him a daily "behavior chart." This is a piece of paper which breaks up his day into four hour long segments, and for each hour, he gets graded on his behavior. A star if he does everything right without prompting, a check if he needed reminders to exhibit proper behavior, and a circle if he did not follow directions even with a reminder.

Yesterday was the first day he got this chart, and there is one star and three checks for the four hours he was in school, written in red ink. Next to each line there is also star in pencil, and I am sure this means the teacher sat down with him and explained to him that he should be getting a star for every line.

I don't like him being reminded to act properly any more than I like his behavior being constantly evaluated.
