Michigan Board Of Education Votes Against Letter Grade System
Michigan’s Board of Education is giving an "F" to an idea to give every public school in Michigan a letter grade.
The bipartisan board came out against the letter grade accountability system today.
It’s part of the state’s plan to comply with a new federal education law.
Instead, the state will issue a dashboard style report card with each school’s performance on state tests and other information.
A letter grade system is still expected in Detroit under laws that provided a state bailout to the district last year.
