Chalk Talk: How Can Teachers Affect Student Grades?
Throughout the primary and secondary years, students will hear time and time again that they are the future and the next leaders of the world. But According to a Professor Scantlebury of the University of Delaware, teacher should be aware of bias they may hold that could affect their grading of certain students. In high school, especially every grade counts. Teacher's who pursued the profession out of a love of education and instilling a passion for learning in young people could unknowingly, adversely affect some student's opportunities negatively. If this concern is ever felt by a student, the most important thing is to advocate for the students' best interests and to have formal discussions with the principal.
