Yeah they've implemented a new grading system for this year

Now they no longer have A,B, and C's. It's been replaced with numbers: 5=A+, 4=A, 3=B, 2=C, 1=D, and 0=E.

The change is retarded if you want my politically incorrect opinion. It's progressive reasoning that I frankly don't get. As if numbers will make the kid feel better. Is he supposed to think: " I got a 1. That's kind of close to 'I'm number #1!' Maybe a 1 isn't so bad after all. Not like that horrible D!"

See? It's retarded.
