his article about a grade disinflationist (it’s a word now, by gum) in Louisiana was published over a month ago, but I just read it tonight:
A Louisiana school system must pay more than $1.4 million to an English teacher who was suspended and demoted after refusing to change the D’s and F’s she gave to 70 percent of her students, a federal jury has found.
What good fortune to have found this article just two days before senior grades are due! If this lady made $1.4 million by giving D’s and F’s to a mere 70% of her students, then logically, I could get $2 million by giving D’s and F’s to all of my students! Sing it with me, D! D! F! F! D! D! F! F!
Of course, I’ll have to wear my “sincere integrity” expression (#6) for the duration of the court proceedings, but I think I can swing that.
