Pushy parents who pile pressure on teachers to improve their children's GCSE or A-level grades will be reported to exam boards, headteachers have warned.
Exams watchdog Ofqual supports the stance, saying any attempt to interfere with teachers' assessments breaches the rules and if malpractice is found, a pupil's results could be quashed.
In other words, they will only cut grades if it's found that the teacher has given in to persuasion and inflated them. Not simply as revenge for the peasants daring to challenge them.
But that's not what the alarmist headline implies, is it?
