A school district in Minnesota has now announced that it will no longer be giving students ‘F’s’ in the name of fighting racism in the classroom.

As The Daily Wire reports:


Sunrise Park Middle School in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, is the latest school to change its grading system in the name of combating “systemic racism.”

In a YouTube video, the middle school announced that it would eliminate the “F” grade.

“Our whole intent is to ensure that grades focus on the process of learning,” Principal Christina Pierre said in the video, according to Fox News. “Therefore, grades will not include behaviors, attitude, tardiness to class, whether the assignment was turned in late or on time. There’s other ways that we can communicate those things to parents.”

Associate Principal Norman Bell added that students would be encouraged to retake tests and quizzes and to revise papers and projects within 10 days of grades getting posted.

The new policy was reportedly enacted after a ‘equity audit’ found disparities between racial groups at the school.

Utterly bizarre and misguided.
The World is a competitive place, in case Ms Pierre hadn’t noticed.
If an American can’t or won’t do what is required to study, or later, feed their family, a Chinese or South Korean, or Malaysian, or Indian will.

The new rule is racist. The left wants to keep minorities undereducated.

Employers will find out soon enough; however, our half-witted politicians elected by our half-witted citizens (and everyone else who gets to vote in American elections) will write laws making it very difficult to fire under-performing employees–much like the Federal civil service today. So, in the long run every U.S. business will suffer while trying to compete against foreign businesses, the trade imbalance will worsen, the economy will suffer terribly, and companies that disproportionately hire Asian-American students from other than Oregon, Washington, and Minnesota (the three states currently with no high school graduation standards) will be sued for being “racist” companies. Because of legal costs, ultimately, the smart employers will hire snowflakes from OR, WA, and MN; pay them to sit in the company cafeteria all day so they can’t screw-up the business; raise their prices to pay for the dead weight employees sitting in the cafeteria; become less competitive in the world market; and eventually go out of business–just to satisfy the Equal Employment Opportunity standards our worthless politicians have encumbered us with. Americans are pathetic at cause-and-effect thinking, and American politicians are either the worst at it or the most self-serving. Believe me, lawyers and the teachers unions love Minnesota’s latest decision.

This is why we HAVE to re-elect Trump or DeSantis in the next Presidential election! They’ll have enough sense to stop this before it reaches that level!!
