So 20-year school teacher Kristine Birrell wishes to give our state Legislature a letter grade to humiliate and embarrass them ("Worried," Forum, Sept. 7). Meanwhile many school teachers and administrators are all exercised over their school being assigned a simple letter grade.
Yes, we now see that teachers know that grades can be confrontational, humiliating and too often present flawed results.
So grade the state Legislature, and legislators will push back with articulate excuses. Grade the schools, and administrators will squirm and wiggle for merely a moment.
