Edmonton high school teacher suspended for contravening "no zero" policy

No-zero hero?

Quote:
An Edmonton high school teacher says he has been suspended for giving students zeros on uncompleted assignments or exams.

Lynden Dorval, a physics teacher at Ross Sheppard High School, has been giving the mark for work that wasn't handed in or tests not taken even though it goes against the school's "no-zero" policy.

 

The thinking behind the policy is that failing to complete assignments is a behavioural issue and marks should reflect ability, not behaviour.

Dorval said he couldn't in good conscience comply with the rule.

Student strike against tuition fees hike

This is it! Student unions that are taking part in CLASSE (Coalition large de l'ASSÉ—an ad hoc coalition built around the ASSÉ group of student unions but extending beyond the actual members of ASSÉ) have now reached the floor that had been determined for the unlimited general strike to take effect. As of the writing of this post, 18 student unions on 5 campuses representing around 20 210 students have obtained unlimited general strike mandates.
