If it were true it would be asinine. The scale for some schools has actually gotten more rigorous. 90-100 used to be an A. Where I teach 93-100 is an A. Anything below 70 is failing.
Your school maybe, but more and more schools are getting rid of letter grades. Sorry but its true.
And what are they replacing letter grades with in these schools?
In the 70's in Bethel Park, they replaced A,B,C,D,F with E,G,S,P,F although that has probably been reversed at this point. Is this objectionable to you?
