San Diego schools district goes Anti-racist
LINK

quote:

Students will no longer be graded based on a yearly average, or on how late they turn in assignments. Those are just some of the major grading changes approved this week by California's second-largest school district.

SDUSD Vice President Richard Barrera. “If we’re actually going to be an anti-racist school district, we have to confront practices like this that have gone on for years and years.”


quote:

In an effort to change that racial imbalance, the school board voted unanimously this week to make several big changes to its grading system.

Academic grades will now focus on mastery of the material, not a yearly average, which board members say penalizes students who get a slow start, or who struggle at points throughout the year.

Another big change, teachers can no longer consider non-material factors when grading. Things like turning work in on time and classroom behavior will now instead count towards a student's citizenship grade, not their academic grade.



A quick primer on “anti-racism”...

Anywhere there is inequity (unequal outcomes) it is due to a racist policy. The proper anti racist will change this policy to make sure there is equity between races.

So, blacks have worse grades than whites? No problem, just stop grading them... racism cured.

Blacks don’t turn in assignments on time? No problem, no punishment for late assignments... racism cured.

Do all black people turn in shite late? I don't get this. This policy is actually racist, painting black people as lazy a-holes incapable of meeting deadlines. Jesus Christ

Black people don't have have access to calendar and clocks.

You would think. I look at it like this... everyday that black people don't stand up to the real racism in mass like this... confirms the stereotypes about blacks.

Than you cut the amount of resources you need to do the work i.e. pencil and paper is fine.

re: San Diego schools district goes Anti-racist
This is exactly what my school district is already doing.
Welcome to clown world. Here is what we have:

1) Black Lives Matter as the first words on the school Theory of Action statement

2) Breakup white supremacy practices on the statement also

3) Standards based grading. Show that you know material at subjective standard at anytime is all that matters. Cumulative efforts are minimized. Performance minimized.

4) 50% grades given for any F work or missing work. Again, missing work is 50%.

5) retakes for all tests and no grade penalties for late work turned in

6) Teaching staff must show progress in being anti racist in their classes

7) class attendance does not matter for grading. They don't need to be there and the teacher must find ways to catch them up.


I cannot stand most of this.

This to me is a race to the bottom.

re: San Diego schools district goes Anti-racist
So what happens when minorities have low citizenship grades and that metric becomes racist? What's the next step?

This is the systemic racism that I have been talking about this entire time. When you do not hold everyone to the same standards or lower those standards for groups based on ethnicity you are really holding them back in the long run.

These three on their own aren’t awful. I had a class in high school that had a 50% minimum grade floor on all assignments. Of course my school was filled almost entirely with students who were really good self starters who saw basically a 50 as horrendous as a 0 so this wasn’t a problem in placating laziness.

Another high school in my town was an alternative school that didn’t care about attendance. But if you failed you failed. So show up if you want or don’t but you’re responsible for your own ultimate success. That actually teaches kids to manage their time on their own when regular high school students sort of have that done for them.

Retakes don’t bother me because you should be allowed to better yourself and if they want to incorporate that into the grades then it encourages a student who failed to circle back and get it right. If you can’t do a retake then if you fail you basically are not incentivized at all to circle back and relearn. I guess it could lessen the stress to get it right the first time which in the real word can typically be the only shot you get.
