The Florida teacher said she gave her students two weeks to complete a project but says some of them didn’t turn it in. That’s when she learned about a no-zero grading policy, written in red in the school’s handbook, stating, “NO ZERO’S – LOWEST POSSIBLE GRADE IS 50%.”So are the Florida teachers going to show up for 0% of the work day and get 50% of their checks? Will you like Florida Teacher Protest Red For Ed shirt? Would that get the point across?? If my son got 50% for nothing, I’d be questioning the school and send him somewhere else. Shame on the school for setting the kids up for failure.

Not in asian countries. We are zero based. When you do nothing, your score is nothing too. We learn things in hard way. And this is why our kids are getting dumber & dumber, not because of this teach, but the 50% part. Wow this is absolutely ridiculous… these kids that get 50% for not turning things in will get a serious reality check after school. Last I checked college professors have no problem giving a zero if you didn’t turn something in. Work doenst care if that project didn’t get done on time they will just find someone else. I 100% support any teacher who gives zeros to children who dont turn homework in on time.
We too have this policy. Very few teachers approve of this, as we know it doesn’t reflect what students will face in the “real world.” Please don’t blame the teachers. I, and other teachers, have had our administrators visit our classrooms demanding to know why “we have failed students,” even though these students have failed themselves with their absence of work ethic. We know how important it is to teach students life skills so necessary for their future success.

My kids school has this also. They are not allowed to hold children accountable. They give months and months to hand in homework. Not allowed to fail kids because online scores need to look good, better the scores, more students they can cram into the district and more state funding they will receive. It’s such a corrupt system. This information is directly from one of my children’s teacher. Florida Teacher Protest Red For Ed. The citizens of Florida should be upset. It is their Tax $, that are going to waste. No student should think in life they get a passing grade for doing nothing. There is more to this story than what is posted.
How about this… they don’t do the assignment maybe they get a 50%, but then they have an extra essay that no one else has to do. If they don’t turn that one in there’s another 50% grade added so now it carries more weight and you got around their “no zero” policy by giving them two f’s instead of just one. Just a thought. If they have a stupid rule maybe come up with a way of getting around it? So, Florida education system is actually a state funded baby sitting service???!!!! Students don’t have to complete home work???? Oh good grief… stupid is as stupid does.
