Question

If it was given in the teacher's syllabus that five points will be taken off every day for worked turned in late and later the teacher choses to ignore it and gives zeros, can we talk to the admisnistators?

Unfortunately both practices - late penalties and zeros - are inappropriate, but the issue here
apparently is that the teacher is not doing what he said he would do, and yes that is
something that it is appropriate to talk about to administrators.

Maura, that might be a little drastic. I think the teacher should at least have a chance to see the error of their way.
