From an email I was sent:
Oak Park is a nice suburb of Chicago.
The local Oak Park and River Forest High School has many distinguished alums and has won awards for being one of the best high schools in the country. The adminstrators have decided to ‘go woke’ and implement “social justice” in how students are marked by teachers.
Oak Park and River Forest High School administrators will require teachers next school year to adjust their classroom grading scales to account for the skin color or ethnicity of its students.
School board members discussed the plan called “Transformative Education Professional Development & Grading” at a meeting on May 26, presented by Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning Laurie Fiorenza.
In an effort to equalize test scores among racial groups, OPRF will order its teachers to exclude from their grading assessments variables it says disproportionally hurt the grades of black students. They can no longer be docked for missing class, misbehaving in school or failing to turn in their assignments, according to the plan.
