In a Florida Public School. Is it Ethical for a single high school class (American History) to Grade a student based on Attendance?
I.E. A student has 4 unexcused absences and 4 Tardy's, the student loses 2 points for each, recieving a grade of 84%. Which is then calculated into 50% of the subsequent catagory. Then applied to 20% of the overall classroom grade.
Is it not a point of interest that it is the legal responsability of the parent of the minor to insure the student attends school, dictated by the county and state?

Participation can be part of the grade.
