When did I say it wasn't correct? I just think it should be titled differently.
Feel free to make another thread and rename it then
That would be redundant and wasteful. Geez.
It isn't click bait it is called making an attention grabbing headline.
Isn't that the definition of click bait?
No. Click bait to me is giving an article a title that has little to nothing to do with the content of the article.
I just went by the dictionary's definition.
"(on the Internet) content whose main purpose is to attract attention and encourage visitors to click on a link to a particular web page."
It’s definitely clickbait and it’s a very misleading title. If you have a problem with the policy, fine, post an article about that. But it’s a total bullshit title that tells a story different than the actual one.
Title: Teacher fired for not giving half credit when no assignment is turned in.
Actual story: Teacher doesn’t give half credit when no assignment is turned in. Teacher learns of district policy that no student can receive less than 50% on any given assignment. Teacher refuses to abide by policy and continues to give zeros if no assignment is turned in. Teacher is fired.
I think we’re gonna need more characters to fit that in the title

I’ve never read the headline of “Florida man arrested for breaking the law” instead of “Florida man high on bath salts eats a person’s face “

And I guess that Inglorious Basterds was about the American military trying to kill some Austrian painter.
District policy. And a good one IMO.
Really? Even giving students a 50% if they turn nothing at all in?
I worked in education for 12 years up until June. The typical student is going to do their work and make more than that. A young man or woman who makes some bad choices will still be in the game if given a 50 percent. Give them a zero and they are drowning and might not be able to come back. Some teachers do it anyway with a curve. Don’t kill a kid. I was a sped teacher so I see it differently. I was always helping a kid tread water. No reason to sink them.
Again the average kid makes well above a 50 percent. This helps the kid who might quit school.
I'm torn, always willing to give a helping hand.
Then gets abused by lazy people.
I think grading homework is dumb anyways. Homework is practice, there is no need for it to be graded at all.
@chrisc and @Sakara=Excitement should both get zeros
So what do you all think school is for? Something I've struggled with is that I believe we've had a credentialing arms race that has put people through more years of school than they often need. At the same time, we refuse to teach public school students about real jobs and real life, so if their parents don't instill motivation to succeed in life via schooling then too bad because they can't get that lesson at school.
So I don't know why they're in school other than I'd like people to read, write, and do basic life stuff. And, in that case, I don't even know why we have grades.
The only demographic I hate more than kids and parents are teachers, so this is a double win for a nigga . #APEstatic #GangGang #FOURPOINTOhDuntGrowntTFup #FreeMusk #ELONorDIE
Doesn't it also effectively teach a kid how to skate by though ?
I know in high school and even college to an extent I barely passed a few courses not because they were hard but because I couldn't be bothered to try harder and likely missed out on things. That 50% for doing nothing to me would have just made it so much easier to do so.
It would make more sense for me to force the kid to make up the missed work in some way or fail them ultimately
