Ohio schools would get old-fashioned A through F grades under a new performance ranking system moving swiftly through the Statehouse.

The Ohio House has scheduled a vote on the voluminous ratings overhaul Thursday. Senate President Tom Niehaus has also set the proposal as a priority in that chamber before the two-year session ends this month.

The bill would bestow A, B, C, D and F grades on school districts, school buildings, community schools, STEM schools and college-preparatory boarding schools based on 13 performance measures.

The grades would be phased in over three school years to replace the current 5-tier system of excellent, effective, continuous improvement, academic watch, and academic emergency.

Community schools serving mostly academically challenged students would see a different scale developed.

That phrase about exemptind "academically challenged" schools invalidates the who;e thing. It's another example of hoodwinking the "academically challenged" public with gobbledigook.

Of course we have a double standard. Everyone plays by the rules except the entitled group of academically challenged.

I thought we want everyone to be treated equally.
