Shouldn't happen. But of course it does sometimes in schools where compensation or continued employment for the principal depends on grades. As in most other walks of life, follow the money.

Baltimore cannot be the only place that does that, not by a long shot. I think this has likely been going on with many many schools for many many years. I graduated in 1978 from HS in Sioux Falls SD, I was an average student at best,not a great student, but mostly solid B's with a few A's and a couple of C's sprinkled in, somehow I managed to avoid getting D. All of my C grades were geometry, trig and algebra which I did struggle with and had little to zero interest in. Even back in the years from 74 to 78 when I was in school I never knew of a single kid who did not graduate, there were always a few who had D'd and F's in every class , but somehow they passed and got that diploma. Grades had to have been changed for that to have happened. My parents who graduated HS in the mid 50's said that it was not uncommon for kids to be held back to repeat a grade, or if in HS have to attend summer school after the rest of the class had graduated and they would not get to walk across the stage and they would have diploma mailed to them after passing summer school. My dad said it was known as "summer bummer" Schools do not hold kids back or send them to summer school any more.everybody passes and with each grade they fall farther and farther behind. I am guessing that this practice of passing everyone started back in the 70's. The teachers and principles will not come out in public and say it, but the reality is everyone passes, at least at public schools.. private schools are probably a different story.

When my wife worked at a technical college, her boss told her she could not fail all the students she wanted to.
She told him that she couldn't give passing grades to people who weren't learning anything, but he told her that he would just change grades for her if she didn't knuckle under. Many of the students were getting public aid to attend this school and would just keep going as long as they possibly could gathering as many certificates as possible, think terms were a bit different for the 2 year associate's degrees and those students could not attend forever...one of the students my wife had trouble with finally got pushed out of the school and could only find work as a janitor.

I'll bet that not all of those Baltimore kids were athletes, though... ;^)

The best way to improve attendance and grades is to give government assistance based on that attendance and grades. They will improve and that may have nothing to do with anything the teachers or students do just the reported numbers.

A few years ago in California, there were untold amounts of money spent on studying the problem of improving teacher performance, student attendance, and overall grades. The company doing the study was owned by the wife of one of the state senators but the citizens were assured when this information was disclosed after the study that it was only a coincidence and did not reflect the outcome of the study. The state followed her extensive multitiered implementation plan. They changed the numbers and kept changing them until the goals were met. This is just another example of government excellence in action.

I remember the Atlanta public schools making the national news with a cheating scandal. Several people went to prison over it.

Agreed....in my summer Psych class we had the football punter and starting center. Neither came very often. One got. D, the other an F.

The coach called the professor about it...they both got.a C to keep their eligibility....
