I heard a few schools that did that, even my school tried to adjust the grading scale so that even a 50% would pass, but we fought that. Of course, doesn't matter, regardless of grades all kids were passed on to next grade and OHSAA is allowing all students to be eligible.I concur.
I am not a teacher (I did teach calculus at Akron U while working on my masters). However, I have been working from home since the beginning of March. My wife had to keep going to work. So, I was "saddled" with helping the kids with their online classes each day.
In most homes it was a clusterF&CK between switching between Google Classroom, Khan Academy, Zoom meetings, Gizmodo or whatever it is. On top of that, the kids were not expected to learn/do even HALF of what they normally do.
Also, I have a few family members that are teachers in various school districts. In each of their districts they were told that no matter WHAT the student did during the last grading period (could have ignored EVERYTHING), they were to not get anything lower than the grades they got in the previous/in school grading period.
Meaning if they were a straight C student, and did zero at home, they got C's on the final grading period.
Kids need to be back in school, in class, with their teachers, period.
