Question

How do I, politely, suggest this material, or even bring up the subject of GRADING FOR LEARNING at a Christian School that has a policy to give ZEROS for late work?
Problem: being labeled the 'problem' mom.
Problem: would like to work at the school someday because my children are in it!

says:

Keep asking - nicely- what the school believes is the purpose of grades and what they want
grades to mean. Point them in the direction of useful reading, for example the November
issue of Educational Leadership from ASCD is a theme issue on grading and the lead article by
Susan Brookhart addresses in depth my first suggestion. Good luck!
