"Oak Park and River Forest High School administrators will require teachers next school year to adjust their classroom grading scales to account for the skin color or ethnicity of its students," West Cook News reports.
From West Cook News:
School board members discussed the plan called "Transformative Education Professional Development & Grading" at a meeting on May 26, presented by Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning Laurie Fiorenza.The standardized testing company ACT earlier this month released a report documenting how endless grade inflation in American high schools could soon lead to every student being handed a 4.0.
"Comparing ACT test takers' race/ethnicity, we found that inflation appears to be greater for Black students than for students who are Hispanic, White, or from other racial/ethnic groups," ACT reported.
"HSGPA is a highly unstandardized measure of achievement because it incorporates not only content mastery or performance on an assessment but also many other factors including effort, participation, and educators' personal impressions," ACT said. "In the college admissions context, this means that the 4.0 from one school may not indicate the same level of content mastery as a 4.0 from another school. This reduces the utility of HSGPA in evaluating college applicants."
Is this what "white privilege" looks like?
