I've already turned in a rough draft of a paper on this (and I won't use any answers from here) but I'm really curious to hear what my vast pool of experience here thinks of this topic. My case for my school law involved a teacher whose principal "requested" she change the grade of the star of the basketball team. Instead, the pressure was so intense she took two sick days. The principal recommended her dismissal due to insubordination. This is something I have no clue about. My school has no sports teams. In my state, if a principal wants a grade changed, he or she has the right to do so as long as a log is kept. I'm sure there are also issues regarding tenure and due process in 90% of cases similar to this, but I'm at an at-will school. Like I said, the academic paper is turned in for my discussion group to read, so I'm not looking for help on that. I'm genuinely curious about what others know, have seen, or have experienced. My mentor teacher had a similar pressure to change a grade years ago and was subsequently transferred to another school in the district. Even my dad was once bumped from 11th to 7th grade for a year when he refused to change a grade. However, neither was fired. (TL/DR) What are your thoughts on administration pressuring teachers to change grades? Have you seen it or has it happened to you? What was the fallout?
