RALEIGH, North Carolina (PNN) - March 12, 2019 - The North Carolina General Assembly is considering a bill that would adjust the grading scale used to grade state public schools.
House Bill 145, which promotes a 15-point grading scale, passed its first reading in the House on Monday and has been referred to the Committee on Education K-12.
The proposed bill would mean higher grades for lower scores by changing the grading scale as follows:
- A: 100% to 85%
- B: 84% to 70%
- C: 69% to 55%
- D: 54% to 40%
- F: Anything below 40%
The old scale was a 10-point scale, meaning students would need to score a 90 for an A, 80 for a B, etc. If passed, the new grading scale would go into effect for the 2019-20 school year.
Every school and student deserves an A, right? It's their right. It's racist otherwise.
