Ok, this is bugging me a little and Im not sure if my memory is failing me, or I expect to much. Either way, here goes.
It's been a very long time since I was in high school, just over 20 years ago. But I remember when it came to grade scales, around 70% you were borderline failing. (I think it was anything below 70% meant you failed, possibly 68% Anyone remember)
At any count, around here, a high school student can score a 60% on a test and its considered passing. ??????
Im pretty sure in my day and age that meant you FAIL. See next year.
They aren't considered as failing unless they score 59% or lower.
So am I remembering this incorrectly or are they making it easier for kids these days?
