A teacher handed Derrick Rose a "D"
in the last semester of his senior year at Simeon High School.

My question is -- who would be in a position to do that -- a teacher, a clerk, a principal, or just about anyone? And, even more interesting to me, how would they do it? Is it easy breezy, or complicated like computer hacking? Is it common, or rare?
