How should a parent address a particularly strict grading methodology used by a Middle School teacher?
For example, the expected answer for a question was "archaeologists", while my daughter wrote down "archaeologist" (singular). The teacher considered the answer entirely wrong because of the missing "s".
My question: is this something that I, as a parent, should be worried about? Or is it a fairly common way of grading work used in Middle Schools today?
