Certain schools implement new grading system, sparking parental discontent.

Parents in the San Francisco Bay Area public school system were against the idea of replacing traditional grading practices with a “standards-based grading system” that aimed to eliminate bias. They created petitions and attended school board meetings to voice their opposition.

The Dublin Unified School District, which began testing the new grading system with a group of teachers last year, intended to shift the focus from earning points to mastering the material and promote equity by providing additional support to students who needed more time to learn. However, parents protested against the plan, despite its name, Equity Grading.
