Posted on 10/19/2020 11:23:09 AM PDT by Altura Ct.
San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD) is changing its grading policies in an attempt to make them more anti-racist. The new grading removes non-academic factors, with the school district using the example of turning in homework late.
For months, the district has been working on multiple areas of its operations, including grading, in efforts to make them more anti-racist and equitable, partly in response to social justice protests that erupted over the summer in response to George Floyds death, reported the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Now, the school districts new grading system will no longer take into account what the district calls non-academic factors, such as handing in classroom work late and student behavior, as some students may have struggles related to home, or other responsibilities that affect their ability to turn in their work on time or learn content before a test.
Students will no longer be docked in their academic grades for turning work in late or other factors related to work habits, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. Those aspects of student behavior will be judged in a separate citizenship grade.
School officials say that these changes are, in part, meant to address racial and other disparities in grading practices.
According to data, black students received D or F grades 20 percent of the time, and Hispanic students received D and F grades 23 percent of the time. Meanwhile, white students received these grades 7 percent of the time, while Asian students received them 6 percent of the time.
The districtwide average for D and F grades was 16 percent.

A’s for everyone...
I actually deep down inside weep for our great nation and what it has become. The Founder’s vision has been disregarded by the left and the true racism is the left.
The crocodile will get you too. And sooner than you think.
>> The new grading removes non-academic factors, with the school district using the example of turning in homework late.
if you haven’t completed the assignments on time, you aren’t going to do any better on the subsequent assignments.
Doesn’t matter if it is math, grammar, or history.
IMHO, anti-racist is racist.
Gotta be SO careful about what kids are being taught, my nephew is 5 yrs old. My sister told us yesterday how she was passing by where he was sitting in the living room(That’s where the computer is set up) and he was watching a video that his teacher provided him, it was about white privilege, she turned it off..yeah that is what they are teaching FIVE YEAR OLDS! Its hard for her to sit and listen to his daily lesson plan since she also has a almost 2 month old baby to care for but I told her I dont care, have the hubby listen in
It all seems to be part of an incredibly devious plan to keep blacks poor and dependent - and get their consent while doing it.
Yet another example of systemic racism.
“if you havent completed the assignments on time, you arent going to do any better on the subsequent assignments.”
No, but when the teacher hands out the graded assignments you can the complete the late one.
“I actually deep down inside weep for our great nation and what it has become.”
President Xi and Putin are smiling.
Everything the libs touch is destroyed....EVERYTHING, including this.
iows...the black students can continue to be disruptive in class?
Soon to be “Everyone who shows up to class gets a “C”.”
I am a little skeptical of Asian students getting Ds and Fs 6% of the time. But there you go... it is proof of racism in grading./s
“It all seems to be part of an incredibly devious plan to keep blacks poor and dependent”
See any blacks protesting this?
They should have a whites only water fountain, shower and lunch room...in order that they do not influence non-whites with their racism.
So teachers get to grade all the homework at once, when its turned in at the end of the term. LOL.
Those aspects of student behavior will be judged in a separate citizenship grade.
Soon the citizenship grade will be abolished due to racial disparity.
