This. THIS story is an embarrassment.
The Cotati-Rohnert school district in northern California has decided to give students a passing grade for showing up and not doing a thing, and this is being touted as amazing PROGRESS.
To my amazement, the students were actually smart enough to figure out that NOT handing in work earns a higher mark than handing in potentially failing work.
To get an F, a student most score below 20%. To get a C, a student doesn’t have to hand in ANY WORK. It’s a paradoxical loophole that most students have figured out, which will be their finest achievement.
The school is standing by their progressive decision.
From The Daily Caller –
a school district-wide rule forces teachers to give every student a score of 50 percent even if they don’t complete a scintilla of homework or make an effort to mark down an answer on a test or quiz.
Paradoxically, then, students who refuse to do any work at all can be awarded a respectable C grade in the Cotati-Rohnert Park school district while students who actually put forth effort could receive lower D or F grades.
“I found a lot under the old system that they were worried about the grades and less worried about the material,” Rancho Cotate High math teacher Adam Green told the newspaper. “Within the new system, it gives more of an opportunity for them to work their way toward an understanding of the material.”
In case you were wondering, the school in Rohnert is 80% white, 18% Hispanic.
In case you were wondering, the 2,453 number in the post title refers to the number of days Obama has been in office.
2,453 dismal days of spiraling the commode.
