Should a teacher communicate the student's semester grade so the entire class can hear?

Do you feel it is acceptable for a teacher to announce, in front of the entire class, each student's semester grade?

  • Absolutely not! That is private! They should have the choice to share their grades if they want to, not to have it announced for the entire world to see. I think it is the equivalent of us having the results of our work evaluations read at a staff good at all!

  • No. There is a reason report cards are mailed in a sealed envelope. I dont like the grading system to begin with it puts every child in a box not all children learn the same and being a kid is hard enough without the embarassment of a lesser grade because you learn better by writing it down than hearing it

  • Absolutely!! This is setting the kids up for teasing and taunting. I would NOT allow that at all!

  • I don't think so...they dont even do that in college. usually you have a student id and if anything they post grades by that id so you can look at your grade but you don' t know anyone else's

  • No, it pissed all of us off when our teachers would do that in high school. A lot of people got made fun of because of it.

  • Never. Grades are not for public record, whether they be 100's or 0's.
