Fairfax County Public Schools plans to give students an automatic 50% for doing nothing, rather than receiving a 0. If you think I am making this up, click on this story:
If this proposal in enacted, FCPS is will ruin what makes our schools so great. They will not give a single zero. Students will receive 50% for absolutely NOTHING. I cannot help but think this is crazy. This sounds like an “Everyone Gets a Trophy” school system.
Everything I have in my life can be traced back to my parents or the great education I received at Rolling Valley Elementary, Washington Irving Middle School, and West Springfield High School.
Making a 50% the new floor instead of zero essentially cuts the requirements to achieve in half. This is insanity and if I can do anything to defeat this, I will!
