You really need to tell me this is from the Onion.

Sounds like C will become the new F. Welcome to the world of good students earning A+++.
___________________________

IMO this ignores the reality of being results oriented.

WIth D students being marginalized because they received Ds, it is imperative to maintain the curve most college's maintain

It can be been postulated that the A students, will be able to overcome the D grade and below and still reach the life that they deserve, while the student who can ony do D level work will never overcome the D - meaning that we can give Ds and Fs for former A students and those students will do not worse in their endeavors to find employment than the former D students now carrying A's!!!!

So the use a A+++ would diminish the clearly forward thinking impact of creating a far fairer beginning employment scenario.

Just think, with so many students now receiving As who would never have been A students before and with D and F students performing at a level previously only A students could maintain

My GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about a Renascence in America. Clearly you have not thought this true.
