Posted on 10/16/2020 3:10:27 PM PDT by newzjunkey
Students will no longer be graded based on a yearly average, or on how late they turn in assignments. Those are just some of the major grading changes approved this week by California's second-largest school district.
The San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is overhauling the way it grades students. Board members say the changes are part of a larger effort to combat racism... Academic grades will now focus on mastery of the material, not a yearly average, which board members say penalizes students who get a slow start, or who struggle at points throughout the year.
Another big change, teachers can no longer consider non-material factors when grading. Things like turning work in on time and classroom behavior will now instead count towards a student's citizenship grade, not their academic grade...

Not sorry I got out of Calif. It's very sad to see this about my old hometown.
If that meant students could test out at the beginning of the term, I'd support it.
Why don’t they just fail 50% of the white students and call it a day.
It appears white students are now the “Whipping Boy” for other’s failures.
They're also reviewing their zero-tolerance cheating policy
Sorry to any teachers out there who do not fit this mold, but the “educators who run things are evil.
Not just people with bad ideas, but bad people with bad ideas.
Reading just what was posted, this sounds like a superb idea. Mastery of a subject is all that matters. Your either proficient or not. If it takes one year or two to conqueror calculus so what? As far as counting homework as citizenship even better. Today teachers deluge students with homework as a substitute for teaching.
In curious how did the decide to test for mastery?
Of cours now the teachers can slow walk a student through 20 years of school.
The Gang System ?
You get a diploma, and you get a diploma,...
Public schools are completely worthless.
Get your kids out if you don’t want indpctrinated libtard morons that believe they are incredibly smart and morally superior judges of all.
San Diego Unified School District is the second largest school district in California and the second worst school district in California. Los Angeles Unified School District takes the prize as the worst school district the state. Sending your kids to those schools is child abuse. There are good private schools to chose from, but if you cannot afford the tuition you need to move to a better district just outside of the school district limits.
People need to wake up and pull their kids out of the govt. school system.
Which is effectively racism
These bored members have a lot of time on their hands.
I don’t see why any student should do any work. It’s all slavery. Now THAT is woke.
If Carlos sells meth for X dollars a gram and he pays Y dollars a gram, how many arrests will it take before a white cop kills him?
Did they actually say mastering?
I guess they’re saying that certain races can’t get their work done on time and can’t behave in class. Sounds racist to me.
