  Case: Grade Changer
You are a new 3rd grade teacher and it is the end of the marking period. You are staying after school hours to do some last minute grading and inputting grades into the system. A parent enters your room and demands to speak to you about their child’s recent test grade of a “c”. The parent claims that this test score will lower their child’s current grade standing of an “A” to a “B” and this is unacceptable. After a long conversation that parent requests that you change their child’s grade. What would you do in this situation?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
I could see if it was late work, but what the parent want is not professional. Her child made a c on their test and she wants you to change it for the wrong validation. When it comes to grade changes you have to stick with you decision because it will be one long year dealing with this parent. You think if you change it that you'll be doing a favor for the parent and you'd be in good favor, wrong. This parent along with others will come in every time to demand you change their child's grade.
