Former Texas Southern Law Students Sue School Over Grading Disputes
Former Texas Southern law school students, Karla Ford and Jonathan Chan, are suing the school for what they classify as improper grading and resulting dismissal from the program.
In the lawsuit, filed Feb. 2 in U.S. District Court, Ford and Chan say the low grade brought their aspiring legal careers to a sudden halt.
“When you believe that you are doing fairly well and you get a grade you feel you don’t deserve, it’s devastating,” said Ford, 27, who has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in administration of justice from TSU.
“There is a lot of embarrassment and shame. It took a toll.”Chan, 26, said he was also stunned by the low grade, and recoiled at the thought of telling his family. (Houston Chronicle)
