Thank you for your question.

I am sorry, but we are unable to represent anyone from this site, it is forbidden by state laws. You would need to engage someone locally to represent you in this matter if you are seeking legal representation.

Thank you for your reply.

Actually, providing students falsified grades that do not reflect their performance for the sole purpose of receiving increased state, local of federal funding, is considered FRAUD and it is a crime. In fact, teachers in several states who have engaged in grading and test score fraud cases have been sent to jail for engaging in the practice.

So, if you have proof this is going on within your system, you should be submitting your complaint to the State Attorney General and the State Department of Education, as those are the two entities who have enforcement authority over this type of matter. When you file your complaint with them, the laws say if they retaliate against you for doing so, you are protected from such retaliation.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
