In an effort to make sure no one gets their feelings hurt, Prince George’s County schools in Maryland are considering raising the lowest possible grade students can earn to shield them from those cruel zeroes.
The county school board is considering raising grades so that the lowest grade a student could earn in the first three quarters would be 50 percent. Students can currently earn zero to 59 percent, which counts as a failing E grade.
Even more laughable is that teachers will give out a 50 percent grade “as long as the student shows effort,” NBC Washington explains.
