Students asks 1.3 millions to school

In her article from this week, Sarah Boesfield was writing about a student from Lehigh University who is asking 1.3 million to her school because she had a bad grade which she tells: «ruined her career». Megan Thode had to get a B to pass her course but she got a C+. She is accusing her teacher of discrimination because Miss Thode thinks her teacher is against her support for homosexuals. Her teacher has near family who is a lesbian.   The lawyer from the school says he has never seen anything like that. You also need to know that her father is working in the school as a teacher which has given her the right to enter school for free and to get a job in it. She finally lost the law suit and became a drug and alcohol counselor.

 

There must be more than just this. She can’t be that egoist and absurd. To get a C+ you must deserve it. She owes a lot to be in here for free and she finds a way to complain. When you get a chance like this, you use it and get good grades. Now her reputation is ruined which will maybe stop her from getting into another university. The school did not ruin her career, she did it herself.

Why would she try and sue the school instead just ask her teacher for a re-evaluation from the school board of her mark? If anything she could have just taken the course a second time. If a person needs a certain mark like a B to pass a course then there goal should always be an A+ and the person should set their schedule to study for that certain course. It was not moral of the student to point the blame of her own action at the teacher and not blame herself for the mark that she got. A mark reflects a person's study habits most of the time. A consequentialist would say, "that’s what the girl deserves because she probable did not study enough so the end result was a C+ for the same effort she made for the class."

I know, if she wanted to pass and needed it, she would at least got a B or better.
