Don't Pay for Extra-Credit - It is an Illegal Pupil Fee

December 21, 2017

In 2013, it was common for teachers to offer extra credit for non-curricular activities.   Extra credit for donations of food for the poor, going to a football game, bringing in tissue boxes or paying fees for AP tests.   


If you receive a communication from an educator,  ask yourself if this activity relates to the course material of the class.    If no, it's illegal.
