Maybe she was retaking it?

I dunno.

Odd situation

I don't know if they would allow her to do that. I went to college on a similar employee program ($100,000 free tuition-my mom was just a secretary though) and there were limitations for how long you had to finish the program.

My sister teaches college and kids fight grades all the time. She had a student ask her the day of the final exam last year if he could do extra credit because he didn't think he passed the test-um...that would be no. I think it just sounds like another situation of feelings of entitlement. I really hope they don't settle and give her any money.

I saw today that the judge rules against it.

Thank goodness the judge had common sense...she should have to pay for the college's legal fees. Maybe they should sue for their tuition back.

I do find it interesting that there was one tidbit of information that wasn't in the articles I read yesterday regarding this person's reasoning behind why the grade was given. Yesterday's article gave several reasons, this one only listed the fact that the student took a position that was apparently not liked by the professor.

The articles I read all said that the reason the student's grade was low was that she earned 0/25 for class participation due to "outbursts", including shouting and crying in class when she didn't get her way.

Caesar, did you read the one linked by MsMar?

Your descriptions of the articles I read prior to the one that is linked today is accurate with what I read also.
