Superintendents Speak Out on A-F Grading System
Oklahoma School Superintendents go to Oklahoma City to voice their displeasure with the new A-through-F School grading system. Among them, is Tulsa’s Superintendent Doctor Keith Ballard. He says the system is unfair and confusing.
For example, he says most people consider an “A” to be anything between 90-and-100-percent. But under this system, Ballard says a school would have to achieve a minimum grade point average of three-point-75 to get an “A”.
School Superintendents from 81 school districts in the state took part in today's gathering.
