“Social promotion” is just the beginning of the story of a seriously flawed system. Even though high schools in large inner cities say that there is no social promotion, transcripts show a different story.
Students learn early on that — as long as you don’t disrupt the class — you can pass without doing any work. Any student who shows up and makes some effort can make a passing grade.
Is this fair to the students who work hard for their grades? Are schools sending a message that you don’t have to work hard to be rewarded?
