High school English

How do you deal with students who believe they should earn Every. Single. Point. on an assignment? We lovingly call them “Grade Grubbers.”

If they ask me why I took points off, I respond that I didn’t. They just didn’t earn those points. If they ask why I tell them that to get 100% the assignment needs to be college level work with no errors.

I’ve learned to grade projects & big assignments with a letter grade, & possibility unbeknownst to the students, an “A” goes into PowerSchool as a 95, our district eliminated the A+ a LONG time ago, 15 years? So students don’t expect to see it & they also then don’t argue for points, it’s an A-, no fighting for a 93 vs. a 90.

I have seen the level of discourse fall and become mean spirited on the Women in Consulting board recently. We are all stressed and busy. Note: Trolls welcome on other boards. Please only respond if you “T.H.I.N.K.” Before you type. T -Is it true? H - is it helpful? I - is it inspiring? N - is it necessary? K - is it kind? - thank you for considering this ask.

Thoughts on VFIAX or VTIAX for 401k (only 2 vanguard index funds available). Currently have my 401k going into Vanguard 2065 Target Date but looking to move into something with a lower Expense Ratio. Leaning more towards VFIAX since it’s 0.04% compared to 0.11%.

Hi all! What certifications are good if you are trying to move more into Cyber Strategy or Data privacy consulting? I’ve got to move to New York for some personal family reasons, and I want to get out of federal consulting and move into the commercial side (Accenture, EY, Deloitte etc). Looking to move at the end of March/beginning of April once my lease in D.C. ends. Thank you all for your input and advice!
