How many people have had their children pushed along in the GC school system even if they were not ready for the next grade? I know the motivation behind this...($$$) but I'd just like to get an idea of how many children have been pushed along for money.

Yes mam mine was. It's not because your child is not smart it's because there grading system is failing. Let's take LC HATCHER for example: child receives a's on test, class work, and homework, yet they have D's or F's on report card. This makes no sense right? Wrong to them it makes perfect sense because they are being held to stands of the prior cirriculum and the common core standards. I have been told the grading systems don't match. Well ofcourse they don't match, common core is a standard, not a cirriculum. Children are graded on a standard not the cirriculum which defeats the purpose of adopting the common core standards!!!

Now let's look at LIS and how they calculate grades. And im sure it's district wide, 5% homework,5% class work, and 90% test grades. Which would be fine if the kids had a winning chance. But they don't, 2 grades in the time of a progress report is a 50/50 chance of passing or failing. Seems like a sham to me! Teaching kids responsibility and the basics of learning is great, but trying to punish them and raise test scores is another. Are we teaching our kids or teaching our kids to test.
