The Baltimore Public School System has decided to pass all black kids who failed the 2020-21 school year because they faced “racism” during the coronavirus lockdowns.
District representatives made the announcement during a recent virtual board meeting last Tuesday, according to Fox 13.
“As we approach the end of the 2020-2021 school year, we all recognize that students have experienced incredibly significant challenges and interruptions in their learning,” CEO Sonja Santelises said.
“With that in mind, the district has developed a fair and straightforward process for evaluating and recording students’ progress in the current school year,” she added.
The school board members also spoke of the “unique circumstances” that “black people have faced” during the coronavirus shutdowns.
“We are going to avoid the punitive approach to failing students and the default reaction to unfairly retain students,” Baltimore City Schools Chief Academic Officer Joan Dabrowski exclaimed about eliminating even the tiniest of scholastic standards.
“Instead, we are going to … commit to our students as we plan for a multi-year academic recovery,” she added.
The district said that the grading system will not change for preschool, kindergarten or first-graders. However, students from grades 2 up, including middle school and high school, will have their unsatisfactory or failing grades changed to “NC,” which stands for not complete. They will then be given the summer to re-take certain classes to improve their grades.
So, understand what this means. The teachers union refused to go to class forcing kids to suffer through garbage remote learning “classes.” Then decided to fix the game and wipe out all the bad grades to cover for their complicity in the destruction of Baltimore’s schools.
