    NYC School Hasn't Had English Teacher in 8 Months, Gives Grades for Subject Anyway: Claim | NBC New York

    Grade tampering happens every day. I'm surprised we don't hear more stories like this. Well, not really. :eusa_whistle:

    What do you expect from a so called education system that endorses grading on a curve?

    Seems to me that just handing out grades for courses not taken is the next logical step.

    Sounds like a computer glitch. She was told to teach English but taught Humanities and Social Studies.

    Could be but the article says no one is teaching English. I'm pretty certain that's a required subject in NY. Maybe not in AZ, but that's a different story...lol
