“A high school social studies teacher gives a higher-than-earned report-card to a mainstreamed student, on the basis of the boys effort, and is confronted by another student with identical test grades who received a lower report-card grade” Leigh Scott - A Social Studies teacher, in the field for eleven years. Aaron Washington - Unhappy student Dale - LD, mainstreamed into Leigh’s class Leigh is on the way to the teachers room, when Aaron Washington angrily approached her about his American Government grade. He claims he deserves a higher grade, because another student did just as poorly, but got a higher grade than Aaron. Leigh tells him that it’s not a good time to talk. Aaron accuses her of “giving a white kid who does less homework a higher grade.” Leigh tells Aaron to come back at 7:30 am the next day. Leigh has never been accused of racial bias before. She graded her sophomore American History class on tests, homework, a project, and participation based on reading the textbook. Leigh knows she gave Dale a higher grade because of his effort, not the color of his skin. He is placed into Leigh’s average level class as opposed to a remedial class because his recourse teacher requested Leigh’s class, claiming a more academic environment is what Dale needs. When it comes down to it, Dale “walks the walk” of a diligent student, where Aaron - a slacker - does not. However, their grades are still nearly identical.
