In Palm Beach County, Florida thier answer to narrowing the achievement Gap is to change how they grade students.
The New York Post Reports:
Officials there plan to replace A-F grading with numbers 1, 2 and 3: 1 means the student is working a year or more below grade level, 2 indicates the student is working less than a year below grade level and 3 means they are working at or above grade level.
But, “at or above grade level” means there is no distinction between a child barely making the grade and an academic standout. It means getting “100” or “65” on a test is exactly equal.
Under this system, what is now a D- would be equal to an A+ !
What intellectual midget came up with this bright idea? Must be a #1!
