At my local college, I have been treated unfairly. The school has had improper practices, unfair practices. I am a paying student, and have A's and B's, all expect for my English 162 class, in which the teacher has failed or almost failed 90 percent of her class, and at least 80 percent of the class has taken action to complain about her. I will not give names though. The dilema is that she will not grade my final paper, because of her personal reasons. She believes that simply because she has suggested several times in the year that I drop the class that she has a right to not grade any of my last papers. I have turned in several papers that have received 0's even when I had her word she would grade them.

I am a paying student, I went to every english class but one. I folded my hands, stand up straight and showed respect. There were a few classes I could not participate in, others I tried . I handed enough papers in to show that I was some sort of student. Regardless her personal issue was never agreed with, she is not my consoler to say what I should do, if I am paying for a class and trying to take that course and pass it, if I make that clear as I did a million times then she should grade what I turn in even if personal opinions matter, because that is what I was paying to be able to do there, and that is what a professional would do. She wont even look at or grade my final paper. Things got ugly , the details sort of funny , I had security on me, mind you for irrational reasons... I went to the head of the school, provided a rational , logical argument and he said he may call me. This is a serious issue, I am a serious person. If they do not respect me or take my grade and myself seriously they are going to have a serious problem. :mad:

If I do not get my paper graded, I am going straight to the local newspapers and boy is there going to be a story about my local college. Then I am going straight to seek out witnesses and after that if I have to I am going to confront this problem in student court!

I cant live like this, I can not sleep, I must see this to the end. I must have justice. Evey night I turn in bed telling myself it isnt right. A A and B's student and college, not even graded in english class for the past many assignments, I can not prove that but now I have a chance to prove she is an unfair teacher. I can not sleep. I need to do something.

I begin to understand what sort of world this is that people tell me it is, its hard, lots of scum and immoral people , lots of people willing to test you.

I cant sleep Im going to go play some video games ..be back to read any possible replies later.

Right, thanks for the response. Im trying to be all bad, and strong but these personal wars can drain you. Im ready to fight though if I have to. Hopefully she will grade my paper today or soon or else it is going to mean a lot of bs for me.

If you have a problem with a mark, your university should have a straightforward appeals and reconsideration process.

Is this a public school or a private school?

If its a private school the teacher can pretty much do as she wishes as long as the school board backs her.

If its a public school then her personal opinions dont matter. She is required to treat all students fairly and equally.

But again it depends if the schools board of directors will take action.

It is public and its not so much what the mark is anymore its the respect and action of the marking.

If the head of the school is dragging his feet about it, approach him again and tell him you will let the media know of this dilemma. The media is a very powerful tool. You should never abuse its power, but when you need some help, it can almost always cause changes, good or bad. I honestly doubt the headmaster would want some bad publicity regarding faculty not grading a students papers.

Also, they may see it as trying to force an ultimatum on them. So if you ever use the media, be sure to do it as calm and professional as possible. Let them know you feel you have no other alternative and not just doing it out of a personal vendetta.

Only thing is , she is black.

If in court they could bring discrimination into this.

I would say something basically as

Discrimination does not matter to me, this is a matter of principal not discrimination and its a matter of teacher and student conduct.

IF discrimination is an issue with you I suggest you bring it up on a trial that is relative to someone on that trial because this was never about any sort of personal race discrimination, if you discriminant then your personal preferences and feelings are not necessary here.

Just out of curiosity, what are your papers about? Could there be any personal reason why she refuses to correct them? Not that it matters, a teacher should ignore her personal opinions when it comes to these kind of things.

I have to agree with you, a teacher should read and grade your work, if she doesn't then that person is not a professional teacher, and should be disciplined, after all, it is her job to grade you. Good luck, I hope this problem gets settled soon enough.

She refused to grade the papers before she looked at them and not after she looked at them. In this case it was paper, I wont argue papers ..too much to prove.

I hate to say it was a black and white paper, that discriminates against discriminators. :beer:HOWEVER this was about the bluest eye a book solely about discrimination, the topic, theme is unavoidable, my passion , opinion is meant for that paper where I have every right to express my opinion freely without targeting or harassing anyone. Remember she refused before not after , I must get witnesses for that. If she argues that she was victimized and angered by the paper I will argue that she started to refuse before even reading it and I swear in the court of law so help me god on that.

I will swear to god on the bible, as you do in court that it was my personal paper and that I meant to insult no one, after all it was a paper against discriminating , her personal opinion is not my choice . I wrote a paper anti discrimination , anyone who targets theyself is the discriminator not me.

Thanks for the support.
