Girl sues high school because she can't get into law school5/17/2012
Getting bad grades? Don't study harder -- just sue. An 18-year-old Australian woman is suing her old high school, claiming it's their fault she didn't score high enough grades in order to be accepted to study law at the University of Sydney. Rose Ashton-Weir blames Geelong Grammar School for thwarting her ambitions to study law, saying she lost marks in English for using words that were too long and was given "inadequate" support in math. ''I didn't ever feel I was getting the support I needed to really excel," Ashton-Weir complained. You won't be surprised to learn that the school isn't buying the lawsuit. It says the former student was "poorly organized and had been absent from class many times."
Who's at fault: the schoolgirl or the school?
