My trust for the public school system has been greatly diminished over the last 20 years.
Part of an article-
Some of California’s largest school districts are trying an unconventional tactic to help students reengage in school after distance learning and boost their chances of acceptance into the state’s public colleges: by dropping D and F grades.
Los Angeles Unified, Oakland Unified, Sacramento City Unified, San Diego Unified and other districts are phasing out grades below a C for high school students. If a student fails a test or doesn’t complete their homework, they’ll be able to retake the test and get more time to turn in assignments.
The idea is to encourage students to learn the course material and not be derailed by a low grade that could potentially disqualify them from admission to the University of California and California State University. Students who don’t learn the material, pass the final exam or finish homework by the end of the semester would earn an “incomplete.”
From the article: Black Knight also sees reams of price data as the prime software provider for Multiple Listing Services. That helps customers determine how expensive a new house they can afford, and the size of a new loan they can qualify for. As a giant repository of info about the rates customers are paying and the balances they’re holding, Black Knight as servicer would serve as a crucial data source for the new ICE data stream.
