EQAO VS School Grades Who is wrong the school or the government

I was shocked when my son received his EQAO scores.  His current teacher shortchanged him in his term marks and was unable to prove herself.  We voiced our concern to the the principal and superintendent to be only brushed off by them.  Then his EQAO scores came and they were far off from his term marks to the point they were two full grades above his term marks.  Where do you go from here? I am sure there are many parents out there that have experienced the same hardships only to find out that the school is not out there to protect the children. They are there to protect their teachers even if they know that they are 100% wrong.

EQAO VS School Grades Who is wrong the school or the government — 2 Comments

  1. I had a similar experience. Only the principal was able to back me up and changed my daughters mark because he believed that we were correct and the teacher was wrong because there was no hard proof that my daughter earned those marks. I am dissapointed that the school did not put a stop to this. Must have been an inexperienced principal you were dealing with. Usually if there is no real proof of the mark the principal suggests a grade adjustment. I would go to the media about this if you can.

  2. It is sad to know that there are educators who would rather brush off some matters like this thinking that it is not important. In your case, you may consider to approach the Ministry of Education at your area. Surely, they will conduct an investigation on the school and eventually the difference on your child’s term marks and EQAO results will be given a better explanation.
