Grades A-F for students, but not for teachers

November 15, 2012

An Associated Press account from yesterday’s meeting of the State Board of Education quotes the board chairman as saying that teachers need not worry about letter grades being applied to their work during the next two years. And that’s good news to Dr. Mike Lucas, the Oconee Superintendent of Education. Lucas is asking his board of trustees to consider a resolution to the State Department of Education that, in the alternative, would endorse “a robust and diverse set of student learning indicators….” An A-F scale is being advocated by the state department and Dr. Mick Zais, state superintendent. Zais rode into office two years ago on a platform stressing greater accountability by those who teach students.
