Issue: A group of teachers at Creekview High School has petitioned Dr. Thomason to discontinue the policy of "2 days absent" extra credit for final exams. What do you say?
Our Views: We used a student named Chris as an example. He missed only two days of school and he does not get extra credit in any on his classes. Chris was relying on his extra credit points to pass the final exams. Although with this new policy in place he did not pass his final exams. He was upset, because he was sick on the days he missed, so he could not do anything about it.
