Two Montgomery Public Schools teachers have alleged that they felt pressured to make improper grade changes.
The Montgomery Advertiser reported Sunday that (http://on.mgmadv.com/11ogYd0) Pamela West and Gardenia Wilson told the Montgomery County Board of Education they thought the decision to transfer them to other schools stemmed from their refusal to give students easier work to raise their grades.

Alabama's state school superintendent says he expects the Montgomery County school system to have a plan by Christmas to make sure grade-changing doesn't occur again.
State Superintendent Tommy Bice said the state Department of Education wants the plan for institutional control in place before the second semester starts. The department will appoint a monitor to make sure the school system carries out its new plan.
