I live in Saint Lucie Country Florida and here teachers aren’t allowed to give kids a 0 grade if they don’t do the work. The lowest grade they’re allowed to give is a 50%. So if there’s a struggling student who gets say a 58% after trying really hard then a lazy ass who doesn’t do the work at all there’s only 8% difference in their score. I think that’s bull and it’s only done as a way to make the schools not look as poor as they’d look if they gave kids zeros. I’ve had this discussion with my son’s teachers and they also agree that it’s foolishness.
Tell them to bell curve it and shift the other student s results up lol.
