How Far Would You Go to Help Your Kids Get a Passing Grade? Computer Hacking, Anyone? (VIDEO)Danielle Smith
You stand over them while they do their homework, you make midnight runs to WalMart for the last-minute, forgotten presentation, you stay up to quiz them on the Civil War, on Calculus (though you have long forgotten the formulas) and on the periodic table.
You celebrate the A’s and B’s.
But what do you do with the F’s…. with the failures?
According to The Huffington Post, one mom, Catherine Venusto, is accused of hacking into the computer system of the Northwestern Lehigh School District in New Tripoli, Pa., to change her children’s grades. Venusto is said to have used the District Superintendent’s password to access the system as she used to be an employee of the District.
She apparently changed her daughter’s grade from a ‘fail’ to a ‘medical exception’ and her son from a 98 to a 99. What? A 98 to a 99? That was really necessary? I can’t excuse changing her daughter’s grade either, but what was the point of adjusting her son’s?
