Florida High School Grade Scam

Grades for Florida high schools came out today. I just spoke to one principal who said his school had enough points (by far) to be an "A" but the state penalizes you if you do not graduate 65% of so called "at-risk" students. This school was TWO students short of getting to 65%. When will we end the bogus school grade system in Florida? Does the public realize the scam going on? These grades mean NOTHING. This school is now a "B."- whatever the hell that means.

The message is clear- pass kids no matter what or else…
