Is 39 The New F?
If you go to school in North Carolina it could be!
Members of the North Carolina General Assembly is now considering changing the grading scale that is used by public schools in the state.
Currently, any grade below a 60 is considered failing. But under the proposed new scale, a failing grade would be anything under 40.
Here is what the proposed new scale looks like:
- A: 100 to 85 percent
- B: 84 to 70 percent
- C: 69 to 55 percent
- D: 54 to 40 percent
- F: Anything below 40 percent
Would you be in favor of changing the grading system here?
