What about not forcing us to give higher grades in the first place? Or wording like that.

I am not sure there is even a legitimate reason for a principal to change a grade. The teacher is the one who is “teaching,” and the one who spends the time with the student, thus evaluating their work, which equates to a grade. Why, for any readon, should a principal be able to change a grade? That shouldn’t even be an option here.
