Fight unfair grading techniques in your local schools

Your child works hard to make sure he or she gets the grades he or she wants at school. Sometimes, teachers are picky or disputes about a grade can tarnish an otherwise good year. It's important to know that you have a right as a parent to dispute the way your child is being treated, and your attorney can help.

Sometimes grade disputes are based in discrimination. For instance, if your child is Asian in a primarily Caucasian school, you may feel that he or she is being judged more harshly or given different grades than his or her peers for the same quality of work. Discrimination based on race or skin color is completely illegal, and you can file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights if you think this is the reason for your child's struggles in school.

Another reason a teacher may grade your child harshly is retaliation. Does the teacher simply not like your child? That's no reason to grade him or her inappropriately. You have every right to point out evidence of this issue and to speak with the school board or sue the school over improper treatment of your child.

When it comes to schooling, the grades your child receives can be important to his or her future. You can speak up and get help if you feel he or she is being unfairly treated at school. Our website has more information on what to do if you want to dispute your child's grades. With the right support, you can file a claim and make sure your child is treated fairly and receives the recognition he or she deserves.
