Had a conversation with a friend about grades. Her daughter is 2 years ahead of DD and was saying so many kids had grades in the 98% average range. 5+. There is a retired math teacher from the school that lives on the street and he was telling me that because of the rigor, the highest averages were n the 85% range but because admittance to university in Canada were grade based, they had to raise them, to ensure their kids could get into competitive programs. I am just wondering if schools are doing grade inflation to get kids into competitive programs. Because it just seems a little crazy that so many kids are close to perfect average.
