I've no doubt certain professors/teachers have agendas and/or biases towards students. My mom told me a story about how she got a lower grade in college from one of her teachers on a paper--and solely due to the fact she was a foreign student from a country that professor happened to dislike. The teacher admitted to it later on and asked for forgiveness, saying she'd change the grade; but I don't think my mom really cared since she was graduating and it didn't affect her overall GPA.
Sorry for your experience though.
I'm not representing her, so I don't have all the facts and never said I did. It would appear you're just as guilty at ASSuming things as well. What I do know reflects extremely poorly on the girl and the father in this situation--and the judge in the case said the same thing too, btw. The teacher said the primary reason she made that *subjective* call was because the student failed to demonstrate the ability to listen...which is absolutely vital in that career path. I knew a few people in law school who washed out after their first year for various reasons--but mostly because they couldn't handle various aspects of the curriculum. Advanced studies are *supposed* to weed-out people who aren't cut out for the career path for one reason or another. Suing the school is a petty and extremely immature action to take.
