Giving failing students a passing grade

In almost all public schools across America we are suffering from grade inflation or changing grades. Often, teachers find out after the fact that administrators have passed their failing students on, or the teachers are ordered to inflate grades to maintain employment. It is dirty secret. A large portion of American students are learning absolutely nothing, except the latest new game on their cell phone.

Schools are also stating that more students than ever are prepared for college. If we are passing them all on, how are they more prepared? 57% of college freshmen not prepared for college because they have been passed along. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/sat-scores-continue-decline–57-percent-of-incoming-freshmen-not-ready-for-college-001618038.html

We enroll a huge amount of students to college so that colleges collect the first year freshmen tuition from the impoverished students scholarships only to fail them out. It keeps money rolling, professors working, and a colleges in business. It makes high schools look great, because they claim,”We are sending students to college more than ever.”

Students are allowed to tell teachers things like,”Fuck you bitch! I don’t have to do shit.”, and often these students are warehoused, disrupting, making the teachers day miserable, and other students miserable, only so the school can collect federal dollars to keep a school open. These same students are often given scholarships. I know you are asking yourself,”How?” I ask myself the same question.

America’s education system is in deep trouble because it is plagued by corrupt people who are lying. This should be on the front of every newspaper in American along with the evening news. Many of the leaders are over-paid so they will stay quiet about the truth.

Here are a few examples, but if you research on your own, you will see there are thousands of examples. It’s like a modern standard.
