Should students get credit for work not handed in?
When several students did not turn in their assignments, a teacher in Florida, Diana 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.
After being fired Diane wrote a message on her white board saying, "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."
"You were right about not giving people 50s, because why would you give them half credit for doing nothing?" a student wrote.
Tirado hopes her actions will motivate policy change and says she was told never to give a student a zero.
