A-F grading system to help schools improve
The A-F grading system for school districts makes many people uncomfortable. There's always an independent study or committee to back up our point of view — no matter which side we take. You'd think Oklahoma schools were No. 1 in the nation with no need to change. The nerve of someone calling us to task!

When I was in school, you were graded in each subject and then you got an overall average of your performance, which could've been a 4.0, 3.5 or 2.0 — sort of like an overall A, B, C, D or F. While this may not be perfect, I applaud state Schools Superintendent Janet Barresi for making an effort and informing the districts, superintendents, parents and the public so they can improve. Won't this benefit the state? As I was told by my parents and as I told my own children, “You will improve this grade or there will be consequences.” What's wrong with that?
