[ - ] Okay, who thinks this is fair? At my DDs high school (a large suburban high school withs standard classes, honors classes, and AP classes), anyone with a 4.0 is named "valedictorian." I don't understand how it is fair that a child who gets a 4.0 by taking all standard classes is somehow named valedictorian while a child who has gotten As and Bs by taking all honors and AP classes does not. Ridiculous! I suppose it would be better if they used a weighted scale for this (a child with mostly As and Bs in honors and AP classes will probably have a 4.0 or above) but they use unweighted!! 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
