SHOW NOTES: This episode is part of our EDUCATORS’ EDEN™ series! This specific episode is, “How to Handle Grade Disputes (I never got a ___ grade before)!”
In some cultures student grade disputes are rare, in some they are nonexistent and in some they are frequent. The educator is not able to control the social norms and cultural expectations of an entire locale. Other than an educator selecting where they will teach, they must accept the schema that is operational in that culture in regards to educators and disputing their renderings (e.g., grades). If an educator selects to teach in a locale where student grade disputes occur, they must accept that there is nothing that they will be able to do to prevent them. They are part of the cultural expectation.
There are steps that the educator may take to be optimally prepared for them and to remove all anxiety or concern on their part.
1) You were a student. What were your worst memories of poor grading and feedback? Use those as models of what NOT to do.
2) Grading is sharing and showing your work. For example, I provide multiple modes of grading and feedback (voice notes, text detailed feedback regarding each aspect of the rubric elements and written embedded comments in substantive papers).
3) Consistently demonstrate and illustrate to your students your joy and passion for your work.
NOTE: If you are teaching in an institution that has unethical/criminal leadership that you are not able to educate in a legal or ethical manner. You will have to relocate to an ethical and legal organization to be able to do so.
Document everything that you can in writing. Keep records organized.

Over the last thousand years or so we developed parenting traditions suited for their times. If you look closely, these traditions served our societies well in days gone by, and some still do. Many of them however, no longer have a place in modern society. We need to 'upgrade' those traditions. After all, parenting is the means by which society passes its way of life to future generations. For something as important as that, we cannot afford to let it become outmoded. In my experience, outmoded parenting practices is the unseen 'bug' in our cultures. They create untold mischief as families try to raise their children. Get your FREE E-Book, Click Here.

We're not so certain we know what we're doing. We discuss our parenting dilemmas daily with one another. We're torn between our children's needs and our own. Do we tape them to the desk to do their homework or should we sit by sweetly and help them with a complete surrender of our sanity...whatever "sanity" is. What we do know is that Healing is Needed here. Parents, we're not perfect and we hope you aren't either. Let's talk Kung Fu skills of mom-dad-child in this every-parent for him/herself culture.
Pass the beer nuts, please.
