    Um, they don't.
    I've never seen that happen.
    Teachers grade on work.
    The top graduating kids of my class weren't the most attractive. They weren't hideous, but they weren't top models either.

    But they don't know it. I was never very attractive due to broken non-verbal communication. Attractive people were given priority and taught at a young age to be confident in their questions, and using this they got every answer they wanted and had it repeated until it was seared into their brain, giving us a group of high test scoring individuals who fumbled in the dark as soon as uncertainty was introduced to their situation or environment, moving to take the same actions as the teachers and use judgment to allay fear, effectively becoming slaves to the lie of control through social structure. The other kids learned this as well and deferred to these attractive individuals in seeking social power. This abject fear, denial, and a refusal to face toward the unknown made them slaves to the very thing they used to control others, always in fear, always lying to themselves about it, and always convinced of their lies that ultimately suppressed who they would want to be in favor of what they were expected to be and following that path to obtain more false power.

To be alone or to be a slave? Sadly, the priority of social animals to judge in primitive ways prevents shared wisdom and true self-determination and conducive environment through understanding, choosing the comfort of unjust skewing of their own views to give into fear over self-identity and cohesion through understanding and facing the unknown in all forms, destroying the concept of fear by not allowing it to exist in light of their true self, dominating fear instead of being dominated by it.

    None of the above. It is this simple:
    A. They sleep with the teacher.
    B. They have "friends" that will let them copy off of them.
    C. They have sex for answers from friends.
    D. They cheat.

    But, well, not in my experience. I get fairly good grades and I wouldn't say I'm very attractive.

    Easy: they aren't as distracted by other attractive people. See, unattractive people are blinded by the beauty of the attractive ones, causing them to pay less attention in class, therefore, not do as well.

    Or, teachers may just be biased.

    Or, perhaps, some people actually are brainy and beautiful.

    I think I like the third one best.

    They don't. When I graduated there was like 4 people in the top 10% of the class grade-wise out of like 20 kids. I mean, I highly doubt they studied every school in America and different areas will turn out different results. All I know is that it didn't make any difference where I went to school.

    Not all the time, and it happens; But also if they have connections with the teachers like fathers/mothers are friends and things like that can happen

    I'm fairly certain, that looks don't weigh on what grades a person gets- I have however, gotten extensions due to working on artwork for the school, been given grade credits for it, and taken out of class to be in the artroom to work on them. So I'd say, extracurricular activities help a student get better grades then looks.

    THERE was no other choice.

    This is totally stupid. I'm called 'pretty' but that doesn't mean anything. What happened to those stereotypes about nerdy kids never getting laid in high school because they're ugly?

    Attractive students don't get better grades. It depends on the individuals' commitment. Besides, some people are more gifted in academics.

    And IF teachers graded by attractiveness of their students, it would be called being a pedophile.

    individuals commitment people gifted academics teachers graded attractiveness students pedophile

    Not always. People say I'm pretty, but my grades are crap, since I don't do anything. I rarely do homework and sometimes don't even do my classwork. It really just depends on student.

    I got straight A's, but I wasn't the best looking student. Heck, the worst-looking ones usually were the smart ones.
