You know you work in pressure-driven school when...

You pass out updated grade slips to the students, and a tenth grader starts to cry when she sees she has a B. This isn't a FINAL quarter grade, people, just her grade so far with several weeks left to go. I know I should be thankful for working in such a great school, but to a certain extent, things can go overboard sometimes. This kind of pressure is one of the reasons academic dishonesty has become such a problem at my school.
