Is 40% a passing grade? North Carolina thinks so.
#1
House Bill 145, introduced by the North Carolina General Assembly on Thursday, proposes to base grades on a 15, rather than 10-point scale. In other words, an "F" grade would constitute anything below a 40 percent score – much lower than the 60 percent mark that is the norm in North Carolina and most other states, WPLG reported.

Under the new scale system, an "A" would be 100 to 85 percent, a "B" would be 84 to 70 percent, a "C" would be 69 to 55 percent, and a "D" would be 54 percent to 40 percent, according to the bill.

I'm sure the libtards who have hijacked the education system think they're doing dumb kids a favor when they are actually destroying their chances of ever being successful adults

More evidence that "education" is about indoctrination and not actually learning anything useful.

Indoctrinating with a 40% average level of retention is grounds for the 'indoctrinated' becoming soylent green.

They'll be able to apply for welfare (with assistance) to fatten them up first but not much else.

Quote:Among the test results for Oklahoma:

In reading, fourth-grade scores slipped four points, erasing the four-point gain in 2015. Twenty-nine percent of fourth-graders were considered proficient in 2017, compared to 35 percent nationally.

Good point I forgot we have a commie bastard as our Governor. Hopefully it will not make it to him. The Yankee communist bastards have taken over the big cities here. Thank God for the electoral college in our national elections. I am going to vote for tearing up all the interstates from the North, they can go through TN.

I think education has failed a lot of people, so many people have trouble spelling, doing simple math, knowing directions, and you notice this when you go out to do business, I get upset because I find I often have to go back and correct screwups employees have made.
