Q:

I want to know why our school has a different grading scale...

Most grading scales in the country are as follows:
A= 90-100
B+=87-89
B= 80-86
C+=77-79
C=70-76
D+=67-69
D=60-66
F=0-59
Our curriculum seems to be harder for the students, and the grading scale is based differently, as well! Why is this? I think it is ridiculous, and this does not help the confidence of our children! There is too much pressure! When there are more children leaving the classroom, and going to different tutoring- in great numbers, there is something wrong! There needs to be changes. I am sure I am not the only parent who feels this way!

What the Expert Says:

Parents are not the only ones who are frustrated with what's going on in education.  There are many teacher who feel the same way.  High-stakes testing has taken the place of good teaching.  My hope is that with the attention being placed on school reform in many states, that things will change - and change for the better.
