Question

my grandson is taking geometry this year. He was not doing so well in geometry and I got him a professional tutor, who has a masters in biochemical engineering to help. I think his teacher is trying to fail him. When the tutor has helped with him homework, which counts as 20 percent of his final grade, the teacher grades his papers and he gets 90 and 100. When he does a test, the grade is in the 70. The test grades count as 40 percent of your final grade. I ask the tutor to look at his test papers after they have been graded and she sees that his grades should have been higher than what the teacher says he made. How can find find out or what to do, or who to talk to see if this teacher is grading his test papers lower than the grade my grandson should have so he can't get a passing grade for this class? Thank you

Get the tutor to provide you with some specific examples of where the scores have been
lower than they should be, take them to the teacher to discuss, and if that doesn't work
go to the math dept. chair and/or the principal.
