Re: How does one...
You could tell your friend that thousands of teachers in urban districts were told that grades would only count if they helped. They cannot lower a student's average. Now maybe your - I mean your friend's - district didn't officially adopt this policy, but it sounds like they are de facto using it too. Take comfort in knowing that your integrity isn't diminished any more than mine or all of my colleagues in big city ISD. Pass the kid and get clarification about the policy if we have to do this again next year.
