How will you approach the teacher who made mistakes in giving grade to your kid?

Some parents can not afford to ask the teacher, or say their complain about the mistake. Instead, they would voice out their comments against the teacher to other people. And those who have guts, they would approach the teacher and insult him for the mistake done. Maybe only very few are very calm and civil in their approach, in which the teacher would appreciate it very much if most parents will do it this way. If you are the parent, what will yo do? What about if you are the teacher? how would you react?

Errors are human, and because teachers are human, they are allowed to make errors. It happens, the teacher usually does NOT do it on purpose, and they will be very nice if you point it out to them. Once you point it out they will change it and apologize (hopefully). Insulting a teacher for that withought talking to him/her about it is pretty sad. Everybody has made errors, has done something wrong that involved numbers. Talking about the event with friends and insulting the teacher behind his/her back is also a stupid thing to do. The only thing it can bring is harm. The teacher did not make the error on purpose, if you spread rumors about how bad the teacher is, its painful for the teacher. If I was a parent I would definitly talk to the teacher calmly, point out the error and would expect the teacher to change it. As a teacher, I would apologize and change the grade to what it should have been and would always be more careful in writing down the grades.

I agree with you. Right!! the teacher did not mean to do it. Sometimes they are too busy with clerical works, lesson planning, computing grades and they are so exhausted doing all these that might be the contributing factor of the error. It is always good to talk to the teacher and find out why. thanks for the reply.
