The CNN multiple-choice meme is spot-on! LOL

All of the A an B students would have to have their points re-distributed to the D and F student scores. Everyone would be “OK” and hover at the C level. Everyone’ needs would be met, so, no need to whine. Only fair (????) As expected, the D-F students cheered, the C students didn’t care, and the… Read more »
