Anonymous Student Group started this petition to The Principal of Jose Marti

At schools, we all have teachers. They are supposed to help us in school and be there to properly teach and grade us. However, what happens when a teacher suddenly leaves the school right after a hard test and allows the remaining work to only be graded as %10-%15 percent of the grade?

At Jose Marti Mast 6-12, a current event is the birth of a child to our wonderful teacher, Mrs Balcazar. However, as she had to leave, our grades has been affected in a negative way. A great amount of students in her Chemistry class who have not done well in the past test given usually would make up for it with classwork or more tests and quizzes over time. However there has been the event that none of this is possible. The students will be left to suffer without any ability to save their selves from probation. What is this probation you ask? Essentially if you get a grade lower than a C, you are punished and at the third time in a row, you are kicked from the school. This may cause in many students getting kicked due to one class whereas the other grades in their classes are good except this one is good.

We are not asking for everybody to be taken from probation or for the system to be eliminated. We also do not want to force anything down our beloved principal's throat. However, we ask that you allow those in Balcazar's classes to be exempt from probation this one time as this system should be fair to those who had no way of putting their grades up whatsoever.

 

With care,

A group of Anonymous Student from JMMA
