Maryland District Parents Criticize New Report Cards

The Washington Post (5/28, Bui) reports that parents in Montgomery County, Maryland, “say they are frustrated because their children have been earning fewer top grades on report cards that use ES, P, I and N instead of the traditional A through E system the county uses in its middle schools and high schools.” The article notes that a student may not earn top marks even with a perfect score on a quiz, and “after the first year with the new grading system in place...some parents say they want changes.”
