Grade questions

To the editor:

As a grandfather of a Person County Schools student, it concerns me that a recent article in the Wednesday, Oct. 28 edition quotes Mr. Dan Holloman, superintendent of Person County Schools, stating that although four schools received a “D” rating by the state, they were not “D” schools.

He reasoned that they did not deserve a “D” rating. If only the scores were established according to Mr. Holloman’s standards.

I believe when all state schools are evaluated and Person County has four schools with the grade of “D,” constructive evaluation is necessary.

It only benefits those in charge to suggest that somehow the state’s evaluation procedure is wrong.

Mr. Holloman assured parents that the students were “learning and growing.” All students are learning and growing. The point is at what rate.
