LFC Comments: At some point public education will merely be a baby-sitting service. We have gone from learning the 3 R’s to learning and attendance are now optional. The Federal Department of Education should be abolished since they serve no useful purpose and have destroyed American education.
Report: Chicago High School to Enforce Race-Based Grading System
June 16, 2022
Excerpts from the article:
A high school in Chicago is attempting to justify implementing a race-based grading system “to adjust classroom grading scales to account for skin color or ethnicity of its students.”
Advocates for the racist system claim it is necessary because “traditional grading practices perpetuate inequities.”
Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF) administrators will require teachers next school year to adjust their classroom grading scales to account for the skin color or ethnicity of its students.
School board members discussed the plan called “Transformative Education Professional Development & Grading” at a meeting on May 26, presented by Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning Laurie Fiorenza.
[The plan] calls for what OPRF leaders describe as “competency-based grading, eliminating zeros from the grade book…encouraging and rewarding growth over time.” Teachers are being instructed how to measure student “growth” while keeping the school leaders’ political ideology in mind.
“Teachers and administrators at OPRFHS will continue the process necessary to make grading improvements that reflect our core beliefs,” reads the plan, which is set to kick off in the fall of 2023.
