2/12/19 On The Mark: Mark & Joe argue about not giving students a grade lower than 50%

Mark Lawrence and Joe McGranaghan host the second day of the discussion about a school district in Florida that does not give grades lower than 50%. Their rationale may include–you don’t know what is happening in a student’s life, it’s hard to claw back from a zero, they want to reduce the dropout rate and other reasons. All callers, emails and texters disagreed, and said students should be graded on the work that was done, achievement reached and assignments completed. Only Mark agreed with the district. 🙂
