You get a more honest deal at a 3-card monte table.
Let’s see, what’ve we got today? Ah, here it is. Another public schooling outrage. Somehow we never seem to run out of these.
A couple of Chicago high schools have decided to implement a “race-based grading system” which will “account for skin color or ethnicity of its students” (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/05/31/chicago-high-school-to-implement-race-based-grading-system/). ‘Cause of racism.
Have they thought this through? Black high school grad applies for a job, says he kept up a B+ average in school… and employer thinks, “Was that a real B+ or just a black B+?” Because he knows a black student’s B+ is really only tantamount to a C-.
At the same time, the schools propose giving black students a free pass on missing or cutting class, misbehavior in school (whatever that means), and failing to hand in assignments.
Because “traditional grading practices perpetuate inequities.”
So much better to have practices that perpetuate iniquities.
The plan is called “Transformative Education Professional Development and Grading.”
What a lot of crap.
This is what public school “officials” do with your tax dollars. Sort of like stealing your money so they can buy drugs.
