My friend had failing grade at school but according to syllabus she is passing. She went to ask about her grade to the instructor but the instructor told her different grading scale. The instructor made some change in her grading scale without any notice. My friend went to talk to top of the school but he said it is okay to change the grading scale and the instructor is fine. But my teacher friend told me that all teachers have to follow the syllabus and if change is made, the teacher have to reissue syllabus and give to all students. My friend didn't get any new written syllabus.
Actually she went to top of education dep. too and he once passed her but on the first day of the class, the instructor pulled her out and told her she failed.
My friend is going to a private nursing institute in Florida.
