Giving schools a letter grade holds educators accountable and provides transparency to the public, supporters of report cards say. But others, including Gov. Herbert’s education czar Tami Pyfer, argue that single grades are too simplistic and don’t tell the full story of a school’s performance.
On Thursday at 12:15 p.m., Sen. Howard Stephenson and Utah PTA president Liz Zentner join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to explore Pyfer’s plan and how a policy change would affect students, teachers and school districts as well as higher ed.
