Who needs standards? Standards suck.

The Department of Education in Pittsburg recently decided that 50% is now the minimum score teachers can give out.  Goodbye, 0’s for kids that don’t turn in their assignments or show up for tests.  Goodbye, grading schemes that make sense.  Goodbye, grades that accurately reflect performance.  Nobody likes you anyways.

The best part is, the DoE says it’s not a grade inflation scheme, even though the justification they give for this system is that it will raise students’ grades.  Hey, I have an idea… let’s give crack to elementary school kids so they won’t turn into crack addicts when they’re older!  BRILLIANT!!!
