It's possible your dad was so convinced that you cheated because of certain reasons, and inspite of whatever anyone here might say, he probably wanted you to learn not to cheat the hard way. So he probably had your best interests at heart. But still, it was very stupid to do something like this without credible info.
I dunno I remember my old man did something similar. I pretty much failed math in elementary/middle school because it was boring. Then in 7th grade I discovered algebra and for some reason really liked it. Anyway I aced the first test and my pops couldn't believe it so he told the teacher he thought I might be cheating because I had never done well at math before. In the end I just worked my ass off and got 100s on every test after that. He was a little suspicious but ended up realizing I had just never cared enough about lower level math to apply myself. Saying asshat dad is dumb the situation is probably similar. OP just prove him wrong by retaking the test on your own time with the instructor.
What a jerk! Contest that grade with the school administration and teacher! That's bullshit.
Thats terrible that your own dad would do that. I say go talk to your principle about it because you don't deserve that. Expecially if it means getting into a good college later on.
whoa, even if you had cheated that's a bit harsh. Fair enough if you'd cheated repeatedly, but surely a grounding would've been a far fairer punishment than potentially wrecking your school career. But doing this without even verifying that you had cheated- by asking to look at the test, for example- is an absolute dick move. Sorry, OP.
Cheating is a serious thing in school. If OP had in fact cheated the dad was right to contact the school, even if it was OPs first time. But the dad jumped to conclusions and potentially wrecked OPs school career. Pretty idiotic of him to do that without confronting OP
I find that ridiculous. Yet again someone says something so everyone is like "it must be true because he said it!" Dear god people. If anything, since your father said you cheated, I'm pretty sure they should've figured that it'd be best to confront you before just going off of his accusations. Your father wasn't there. Maybe you can do a retake? I'm not sure what would be a good solution since they don't believe you... The only way I can see you proving it OP is if you retook it with someone watching you. Hopefully things work out! :) and congrats on passing the test without cheating.
Well said and I like the point of his dad jumping to conclusions. He had to have some reason to think of cheating or else he would have been happy. But call the school that is just wrong. The whole world Is full of cheater and liars and we honest people are always the fall guy for them. If you didn't cheat then you know it and prove to yourself and that's all that matters good luck
