When the North Carolina state legislature gets hold of it!
This just in: the legislature is pondering a move to lower the failing grade in the state’s schools to 39 percent or less (https://www.local10.com/education/state-proposes-lowering-f-grade-to-just-39-percent). Currently, you’ve got to score 60 or less to get an F.
Oh, but they’ve got a swell reason for doing this! If they do, it “would allow underperforming schools to continue operating.”
Why should those schools continue operating? Why should the public pay for schools where so many students fail? Because it’d be too big a hassle to close them? So we just keep paying for them? Dig those teacher pensions!
Public education–day by day, sucking the life out of our country.
