A high school student in Michigan is suing to have his grade changed from an A to an A+.
His mother claims her son deserved A+ credit for a work/study program that involved the student working as a paralegal in her law firm.
Incidentally, the grade of A+ would keep him in line to become valedictorian. Yes, that right, on the judgment of a parent, not a teacher, a student is suing to get an A+ so he can remain valedictorian. I sure hope this kid isn’t coming east, specifically to my institution, to go to college. I have enough problems with grade inflation and students whining about grades to have to start worrying about being sued when perfection isn’t perfect enough.
