A high school in a Chicago is implementing a race-based grading system “to adjust classroom grading scales to account for skin color or ethnicity of its students.”

The move is necessary, advocates say, because “traditional grading practices perpetuate inequities,” a slide used in a presentation said.

Students, depending on their race, will not be held accountable for missing class, misbehaving in school, or for failing to turn in assignments.

The West Cook News reported on the development:

Oak Park and River Forest High School (OPRF) 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.

[The plan] calls for what OPRF leaders describe as “competency-based grading, eliminating zeros from the grade book…encouraging and rewarding growth over time.” Teachers are being instructed how to measure student  “growth” while keeping the school leaders’ political ideology in mind.

“Teachers and administrators at OPRFHS will continue the process necessary to make grading improvements that reflect our core beliefs,” the plan, set to begin in the fall of 2023, says.

The article notes that according to the Illinois State Board of Education, 38 percent of sophomores fail the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).

The failure rate was 77 percent for black students, 49 percent for Hispanic students, 27 percent for Asian students, and 25 percent for white students.

Margaret Sullivan, associate director at the Education Advisory Board, which consults colleges and universities, said teachers have to recognize when “personal biases manifest.”

“Teachers may unintentionally let non-academic factors—like student behavior or whether a student showed up to virtual class—interfere with their final evaluation of students,” Sullivan said. 

Fiorenza called for the changed after releasing a report that showed a spike in “F” grades in the 2020-21 school year.

“OPRF’s administration will adopt language that makes and keeps the system visible and continues to name racism as a complex interconnected structure,” the report said. “We must recognize the unique challenges faced during the pandemic intensify the need for a systemic approach to confronting the racial and socioeconomic discrepancies often experienced by our underrepresented student population.”

  1. Why bother, just give all minorities an a, and fail all white students. Close the schools and save lots of money. This would solve the problems much more efficiently, while making the minority students happy. Forget the white students, unless they are gay.

  2. I guess this should affect who I hire in the future. I will employ a race based hiring practice.

  3. This is not the way to educate students. Have the students read a book, study their notes and take a test like it always has been done. Your rascist system is pathetic and doomed to failure. This I know for a fact.

  4. WTF this can’t even be called STUPIDITY it is beyond description. Are the so-called Educational Experts lost their f-cking minds? So a Black kid gets. an A if he answers 1 + 1 = 3, a Hispanic kid who answers the same gets A-,. an Asian kid gets a B who answers the same gets a C and the White kid gets C-. Let that sink in. This is what you get with Government-run education and Union Teachers.

  5. Now there being Racist to White people… Just have them show up @ end of Semester and get there grades… Hell just give them there Diplomas and not waste peoples time…

  6. Why not just issue the minority people a free A, a fat job with good pay, and the promise that no matter what they say or do, it’s all okay.

  7. No wonder students are totally illiterate. The teachers are not teaching reading, writing, history, math, social studies. They are more worried about a child’s skin color and if they feel like the might be transgender. Our educational system is a joke!

  8. This is so stupid that I don’t believe it is true. It’s a joke isn’t it. Tell me it’s a joke. Anybody?

  9. These so-called “Equalizers” are the most racist ‘BLOCKERS’ of students from lower income families.
    RACE IS NOT THE DENOMINATOR – INCOME GROUPS ARE! True, there may be more darker skin students in lower income families, but that is NOT the difference!
    Teachers like that – or rather EDUCATION DESK PUSHERS – have no idea about child development and psychology.

  10. This is what comes from racial equity not equality. There’s a HUGE definition difference.

  11. I like the idea of “just close the schools”. What’s not to like; No grade discrimination, Teachers are free to do what they want, Taqxpayers don’t have to pay for stupid stuff, The Department of Education can be eliminated, School buildings can be leased out to help local budgets, and as a bonus we eliminate a whole lot of soft targets for lunatics to go in and kill the children.

  12. what possible jobs will this education qualify them for? what social skills does this teach? how is this inclusive? and most important is special treatment truly equity? I can’t wait to hear the answers to these basic questions.

  13. Obviously, our schools are now being run by liberal people of color who have lost their minds in a rush of “power madness.” Pandering to laziness, stupidity (which includes our incompetent teachers who are having more fun with gender and equity and have forgotten what their jobs are) and the outrageous “woke” culture seems to be the order of the day. Soon all of us who are whites will be sending our children to Asia to get a decent education. May as well close our schools and universities. We need to get rid of this administration and get back to equal opportunity, not equity, and stop sucking up to people because their skin is darker than whites and Asians. This nonsense is completely out of control and needs to be stopped.
