Zane said:
The movie has Ralphie's teacher and his mother, both of whom are named. However, I don't think they talk to one another.

Ralphie's mom and Schwartz's mom talk on the phone when Ralphie tells his mother that he heard the F-word from Schwartz.

Julie disagreed with the rating and said:
If I remember correctly, there's a scene in which a female student gives a gift to Miss Shields, who says, "Thank you, Heather." So this movie may marginally pass.

We don't know Schwartz's mom's name (at least I don't think she is named) and we can't see her or make out what she is saying. That female student isn't named either is she? That's not a conversation anyways she is just saying thank you. I agree with the rating and that it doesn't pass.

@Lisa Yes, this movie should marginally pass. We know both of their names SORT OF: Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Schartz. And they have meaningful conversation about something other than a man.
