Solutions that don’t break the bank, reinvent the wheel or marginalize our teachers are within our grasp. We could have rigorous classes, safe and disciplined schools and treat teachers like valued colleagues rather than easily replaceable cogs, and we could do so tomorrow if we wanted.

Should Florida school districts get grade relief?
Superintendents all over the state are asking for grade relief. They say changes to the system will result in more schools failing and it won't reflect what is happening in many of our schools.
Here is my two cents, changes in the grading system led to grade inflation and the supers loved it and fair enough who wouldn't but doesn't that make them complaining about how more changes will lead to a drop in grades, hypocrites?
I don't want anybody to think I am defending the system we have in place because I think its horrible, I just hate hypocrisy even more.
The supers should be fighting to junk the whole system, not to make self serving changes here and there, because anything less than that is tacit approval of a failed system and our schools and kids deserve better.
