Should Minnesota Schools Change Their Grading System?
Getting an A is going to be a whole lot easier in the near future. At least in North Carolina, and only IF this proposal passes. If I were in high school again, I'd be all for this. As a parent, however, I'm torn. They are actually looking at changing the entire grading scale quite a bit. Check it out:
- A: 100 to 85 percent
- B: 84 to 70 percent
- C: 69 to 55 percent
- D: 54 to 40 percent
- F: Anything below 40 percent
The old scale was a 10 point scale, meaning 90% or above is an A, 80% for a B, and so on. If this proposal happens to pass, the new scale would take effect immediately for the next school year (2019-2020). What do you think? Does this benefit or hurt kids? Do you think schools in Minnesota should do the same?
