Permit me to add to Joel Addington’s comments in last week’s edition on the mish-mash that is Florida’s school grading and student testing system.
Back in those college years, I recall the second semester of political science course (my major) when I received a D after getting a B in the first section. After the first semester, using the reasoning powers of a typical 19-year-old, I figured the second phase would be a snap. So I attended class (shall we say?) infrequently.
