Texas Education: No Schools Fail After State Removes Failing Grades
America is a very serious country run by very serious people. They would never change the rules of society just to make people feel good and avoid offending anyone.
The Texas Education Agency on Monday released its first public school ratings in three years and despite pandemic interruptions, the number of schools that received the highest rating increased.
It’s a miracle!
88% of districts received either an A or B rating in 2022.
That number was 60% in 2019.
How did they manage to get away with claiming no schools failed, and instead doing a “no rating,” implying they just forgot to rate all the bad schools?
Because there’s a virus, y’all!
