    College principal asking me to give invalid grace marks to a student

    I am lecturer in a private engineering college. My principal has asked me to give invalid grace marks to one of the students who doesnít deserve them because his parents have bribed the principal. My conscience doesnít allow me to do such a thing and at the same time I do not want to lose my job. How do I tackle the situation?

    Hello !!!

    this situation is really tough.
    one side you have your's loyalty to the principal and another side you have your's own ego.
    so, you are completely in the dilema.
    so what to do and what to not do is completely based upon you.
    so at this point you have only one option left with you.
    you have to do such thing that you must satisfy the need of both the parties.

    so, just have confident on yourself and do that what your Heart says.
    at this point don't listen to you mind.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.

    hello,
    well you are in a serious problem. as you are a lecturer you have to follow the principal. you need to give those invalid grace marks, that is bad news i know. but you need to save your job for a while, that student or principal are not going to bribe the management for you. only you have to sail your boat. so just give the invalid grace this time but tell your principal directly that he should not ask you for such things in future.

    make this talk clear to him that bribe marks are not save or make the future of the students, you cant do unjustice to other students who work hard for these marks.

    further if he gives you such job then you should complain to the the management.

    Goodluck

    Dear Aspirant,

    Really,you seem to be in dilema.You present situation might be tensing you much.But have patience & solve your problem tactfully.You are in the right position.The undeserved students should not be given grace marks as it will boost the mental power to the concerned student.Consequently,he/she will be responsible to spoil the good educational environment of the college.At the same time,the concerned student won't give you respect & wont care other teachers also.
    So,you should discuss with your principal in person in your private appointment.Still,if the principal wants & expect you to do the same thing,do it now after & try to join some other college.But,you may face this type of situations in most of the places when the institutions is not well known for its administration & performance.

    If you dare to stick to your principles.you may not be asked later to do so.You may not be harmed by the principal,if there is a union of lecturers in your college & if they support you in this regard.

    So see the situation,think well & proceed further.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    Hey friend take a good decision in your own because you know whether the student is perfect or not.If the student is outstanding in their studies and discipline you will definitely increase their mark with proper evidence.When the principal will asked about their grades you show me their overall performance in their disciplines and their studies.But the student is poor in their studies and disciplines you will definitely decrease their grades with proper evidence.Take your decision in your own.If you follow principal rules you will face a problem that will be created by their parents.So try to take a truthful good decision otherwise you face a major big problems.

    Re: College principal asking me to give invalid grace marks to a student

    Hi friend

    I am really proud of you that you stand by your principles and your conscience is so clear. It is very difficult to find such people like you in these times when everyone indulges in corruption and unjust means of earning money.So you are really a very moral person and should remain like this whatever circumstances you may have to face. And as for this problem of yours, I think as you are man of principals, so you should stand by them and should not give unnecessary marks just because your principal has taken bribe from the parents. Dont worry about losing your job or annoying your principal because you will get many better jobs and if your job does not allow you to retain your morals, then I think its definitely better if you get rid of this job.

    But if you think from the student's point of view and think that it will save his future by giving him such grace marks as advised by your principal, then you may do so as it will be beneficial for the student's future. But if you think that this may lead to spoiling of his future , as maybe he will not work hard anymore, then you may not give him extra marks. But at the end the decision should be yours. You should not come under your principle's pressure and do as he says, but should follow your own heart . Straightforward tell your principal that you wont give any extra grace marks to that student if you believe so otherwise do as he says if you believe the other way around and thus save his future.

    Good luck. I hope you make the right choice.Thanks

    College principal asking me to give invalid grace marks to a student---

    Really,you appear to be in dilema.You gift scenario may be tensing you abundant.But have patience & solve your downside tactfully.You are within the right position.The unmerited students shouldn't be grace marks because it can boost the mental power to the involved student.

    Consequently,he/she are accountable to spoil the nice instructional surroundings of the faculty.At identical time,the involved student will not provide you with respect & wont care different academics conjointly.

    So,you should see your principal head to head in your non-public appointment.Still,if the principal needs & expect you to try to to identical issue,do it currently once & try and be a part of another faculty.But,you may face this kind of things in most of the places once the establishments isn't standard for its administration & performance.

    If you dare to stay to your principles.you may not be asked later to try to to therefore.You may not be injured by the principal,if there's a union of lecturers in your faculty & if they support you during this regard.

    I am very pleased with you that you simply stand by your principles and your conscience is therefore clear. it's terribly troublesome to search out such folks such as you in these times once everybody indulges in corruption and unjust suggests that of earning cash.So you're very a awfully ethical person and will stay like this no matter circumstances you'll got to face.

    And as for this downside of yours, i believe as you're man of principals, therefore you ought to stand by them and will not provide surplus marks simply because your principal has taken bribe from the fogeys. Dont worry regarding losing your job or annoying your principal as a result of you may get several higher jobs and if your job doesn't enable you to retain your morals, then i believe its undoubtedly higher if you get obviate this job.

    However if assume you're thinking that from the student's purpose of read and think that it'll save his future by giving him such grace marks as suggested by your principal, then you'll do therefore because it are helpful for the student's future. However if you're thinking that that this might result in spoiling of his future , as perhaps he won't push any longer, then you'll not provide him additional marks.

    However at the top the choice ought to be yours. you ought to not return underneath your principle's pressure and do as he says, However ought to follow your own heart .
    Easy tell your principal that you simply wont provide any additional grace marks thereto student if you think therefore otherwise do as he says if you think the opposite manner around and so save his future.

    Hello Mam,
    though Its a difficult situation to be in a conclusion you need to think sensibly ,its always better to go with the truth rather than supporting the cowards.suppose in order to save the job you gave away some extra mark to that student ,but when other students get to know about this they will start taking advantage of you in illegal way and your reputation will be down.nad in future the same principal will escape by blaming the cause on you and may terminate you.after that you wont get a job in any school.so what i suggest you better say to your principal that you cant do it and if possible try to collect evidence of your principal taking bribe.there are many ngos and vigilance organisations are opening in india who work to remove veil from these type of scandals ,contact them they will take care of them.take help of your students and other teachers and bring this situation infront of them and i am sure all students who opt a fare means in the exam wont support it even if there parents so you will have a greater support to stand behind you.
    so dont be afraid do what you feel right all issues will be resolved.
    thank You
