A teacher in Florida was abruptly removed from the classroom this week after she refused to comply with the district’s “no zero” grading policy; requiring all instructors to give students at least 50% on all assignments -even projects not handed in.
According to NBC, Diane Tirado was fired from a West Palm Beach school for dishing out 0% grades to all her students that refused to submit assignments.
“What if they don’t turn anything in?" Tirado said she asked administrators. "‘We give them a 50.’ I go, ‘Oh, we don’t.’ This is not kosher.’”
“I’m so upset because we have a nation of kids that are expecting to get paid and live their life just for showing up and it’s not real," Tirado added.
