Hallelujah! Finally someone has proposed a school grading system that seems to make sense ("Guv's office offers new school grading," April 23). Well done, Gov. Herbert and your education adviser, Tami Pyfer.
The proposed system would post information on how a school is progressing toward state leaders' education goals. It would show actual data such as graduation rates, overall performance on state tests and facts that are useful for parents and school patrons.
The letter grade system for schools that was unveiled last fall was an absolute failure. It told parents nothing and was quickly ignored. The tweaks that were done in the 2014 legislative session will not save this flawed system.
