There’s plenty wrong with some countries’ education systems these days, especially those outside of Europe. Gone are the days when school is made simply for learning and being lazy has consequences. Hence, it can get rather difficult to teach kids who know that they can push boundaries and not get punished. One teacher was even fired for failing students who failed to submit assignments.

It happened in West Gate K-8 School in Port St. Lucie, Florida to US history teacher Diane Tirado. Diane was apparently a veteran teacher who was new to West Gate K-8 School. She believed that a grade has to be earned and wants kids to learn the value of hard work. The problem is, West Gate K-8 School has a “no zero” policy where the lowest grade a student can have is 50 percent.

Diane then gave a homework to her new class and some of them did not submit despite the 2-week time allotment. So she gave them zeroes, in other words, failed them. So what happened when her teaching ideology clashed with the school’s policy? She gets sacked for failing students. The school fired her during her probation period, leaving her unable to sue or seek help from unions. Here she is:

Diane only lasted a few weeks in her new job but nevertheless, left a farewell message to her students in the whiteboard, “Bye Kids, Mrs. Tirado loves you and wishes you the best in life! I have been fired for refusing to give you a 50% for not handing anything in.” Meanwhile, the said school gave a different reason for firing Diane, saying that her teaching was “sub-standard” and she created a toxic culture in the campus.

A school district spokesperson from Florida also stated that there is “no district or individual policy” prohibiting teachers from failing students who failed to submit a work.
