Ban the Richmond 80/20 grading system

The 80/20 grading system here at the Richmond schools is not helping our students. Many of the students are not great test takers, whether its having text anxiety or just getting very nervous when testing. Did this really have to be such a drastic change so quickly? Teachers have to make 2 different tests, which takes away from planning other assignments, double checking tests and changing grades...is this necessary? A grade is not based just on testing. Homework, projects, classwork, group involvement and testing are all part of a final grade.  This whole grading system is just stressing out too many students.

Sponsors pay for TV time, not a PR announcement that will be forgotten before the race is over. Kyle always gets a ton of TV time; this week it will be through the roof. M&M's is having a wet dream just thinking about it. It is NEVER a marketing coup to kill the golden goose. Got it?
