I teach high school in NY. I've been told by my principal that it is illegal
to give a grade based on behavior but I am allowed to give a grade based on
class participation. At the end of class each day I collect their work and
if they've done nothing or hardly anything they get a zero for the day. Does
anyone know more about this?
