America’s already sub-par educational standards continue to be lowered in districts across the nation. Along with the introduction of federal Common Core curriculum, teachers are becoming far more interested in dispensing leftist propaganda than instilling actual knowledge.
Nowhere is this depressing trend more apparent than in Lake County, Florida. According to a recent local report, at least one school in the district, Gray Middle School, has banned any educator from issuing a grade lower than a 50.
In an interview with WFTV in Orlando, one school administrator contended that the outrageous policy is somehow in the students’ best interest. When confronted with the fact that it falls far short of preparing kids for the real world, the official tried to spin the decision in the district’s favor.
