Teacher fired for giving student a bad grade.
« on: September 25, 2018, 05:42:58 PM »
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - A South Florida teacher said she was fired after she refused to give a student a 50 percent grade on homework that was not turned in, CNN reported.

 Port St. Lucie teacher Diana Tirado said students should not get credit for work that was never handed in.

Tirado said motivation and inspiration is what she strives to provide her students. Tirado has been a teacher for years, but she started at West Gate K-8 School in August as an eighth-grade history teacher.

 

"Teaching is a calling for me," she said.

 

Tirado said she assigned an explorer notebook project which she gave the student’s two weeks to complete.

 

When several students did not turn in their assignments, Tirado said she found out about a “no zeros” policy, in which the lowest possible grade allowed to be given is 50 percent. The policy is reflected in the student and parent handbook, Tirado said.

 

Tirado said she asked administrators, "What if they don't turn it in?”

 

She said the reply she received was, “We'll give them a 50.”

 

"You don't know what's going on at home. If my son blatantly chooses not to do it, he knows he's got an issue right there, right," one parent said.

 

Tirado was terminated on Sept. 14, but there's no clause mentioned in the letter from the principal since she was still in her probationary period.

 

On her last day of school, Tirado wrote this message on a whiteboard: "Bye, kids. Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in."

Yes but they have gone all the way through school to be that stupid.   :lol:

And we wonder why so many in the country are turning to socialism as a legitimate reason for doing nothing. We certainly are surprised by things like this but really...should we be?

How else are kids supposed to learn? If you don't do work in the real world your boss fires you, not the other way around.

I have an idea.  We need to teach another life lesson.  For all the kids who do the work and make A's and B's let's do a random selection.  If they're selected they fail and have to repeat said grade.  And, they get five swots from a paddle.  If they give back talk then make their asses black and blue.  The life lesson is that nothing in life is guaranteed and life is not fair.   Let's not teach life lessons half assed.

And, let's add to what I said in my previous post.  One can do the work and still get fired and/or laid off.  And, one can make all A's, go to college, make top marks and still end up working at McDonalds even though they were told to do their work to avoid McDonalds as well.  How the kids interpret the concept you're trying to impart is if you do everything we tell you to do then you will receive your rewards.   While they're going to school and even college this works.  They do their work and pass the classes they move onto the next grade.  In college, they do their work, get their credits and degree and find the degree does not guarantee them any job for that matter.   So, about a fourth of person's life they're under the you do this you will receive this model.  If those who are in charge of the kids are only teaching this then they're only teaching a part of the story.   This means those who are in charge of these kids are lying by omission.

How about we teach kids that for the overwhelming majority of us, life will go in the direction that they themselves lead it in.

Life isnt fair. i think most people come to realize that at some point in their life. Through struggle there comes success in one way or another, and by rewarding kids for doing no work is not helping them.

It's also, in my opinion, why so many young libs want socialism. It's their dream of no work and no effort into anything. Just coast through life with a false sense of accomplishment. That's not how America was created and it's why America is one of the most successful countries in the world. Through hard work, determination, and a willingness to fight for a better life.

How about we teach kids that for the overwhelming majority of us, life will go in the direction that they themselves lead it in.

In other words, we control our own destiny.   This does not hold up with the concept that life is not fair.  Let's say we have 500 people are has their ship steered towards becoming programmers. 

Either all 500 can become programmers and they're guaranteed to become programmers if they do certain things or life is not fair and at least some will not become programmers ergo they're not in control of their own destiny and they don't lead themselves.  There control over the destination is limited.  Either maxim is true but both maxims can't be true at the exact same time.  It's like an airplane being able to both go up and down at the exact same time.  It makes no sense.  It's illogical.  And proof by contradiction proves that at least one of these maxims must be false. 

I don't dispute the maxim that life is not fair but I don't accept that we're in control of our lives and we lead ourselves to where we wish to go.  It makes no sense.  It's illogical.  It's contradictory.  Both maxims can't hold up as true. 

This is blatantly double-think.   2 + 2 = 4.  It's out of the playbook of 1984.

War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is Strength.

Life guarantees nothing yet you have control.

Life is not fair yet it's acceptable to bitch about taxes, socialism, the constitution not being followed, etc, etc.  If you all truthfully subscribed to the maxim of life is not fair then why don't you all slog on?  Accept welfare, Accept socialism, Accept the constitution being violated.  Accept feminism.  Accept communism.  Accept illegal immigration.  If you all subscribed to this maxim of life not being fair then shut up, shut down this forum and move on with your lives.  If life is truthfully not fair and we must accept this truth then why are you guys fighting for your version of fairness?  Why bother?  Why did the founding fathers even bother with the revolutionary war and write up the constitution in the first place if we're all to accept that life is not fair?     

How do your actions belie what you all accept to be true?  We're all expected to accept that life is not fair yet none of you do.  How does this even make any kind of logical sense whatsoever?  It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.  Why aren't people consistent with what they accept as truth? 

Liberals do the same thing with tolerance.   They value tolerance except for the things they don't tolerate.  People in general are contradictory, illogical and inconsistent.  How did we even make it as a species?   

People are so freaking confusion.
