    Precisely why we need standardized tests.

    Btw, what is an "A/B honor roll". At any school I've seen, in my day and currently, A & B honors are two separate things. It's always been either High Honors/Honors, or Distinguished Honors/Honors, etc. Why would you lump A and B Honors together? That doesn't really "honor" the acheievements of the A students.

    Just more PC bullcrap.

    Teachers don't use "red' pens to grade papers because "red" is a negative color.

    No exchanging of valentines in class because one kid might not get as many as other kid does.

    Not keeping scores or standings in sporting events because the "losing" team might get their feelings hurt and feel inferior.

    BS.

    Why not just put EVERYONE on honor roll...why should grades be a factor, afterall...grades are just letters...everyone deserves the morale boost that comes with that honor roll distinction.

    I completely agree. In fact, the government is to blame for segregating the abilities of children, and trying to butter it up with 'letter grades.' Rather, the kids should just be able to show up for classes, express their individuality through color games and flower thinking sessions. Everyone should get A's, because there are no wrong answers.

    Just more bullcrap. No wonder we have a society where many feel they are entitled to everything they want. We've a whole generation of kids who have never had to work for anything. And, when reality bites them in the ass, they cry "Foul!".
