Incomplete 'grade'

Letters to the Editor

David Goin
I was disappointed in the content of an article appearing in the Oct. 17 Oklahoma Gazette (News, “Degrading the grade”). I am particularly concerned about a quotation attributed to me (“it’s just about too much to ask”) followed by words that are a misrepresentation of my position and expectations for the academic growth of students.

We’re no. 10!


Gazette staff
This list isn’t one that anybody wants to be on. This isn’t Billboard’s Top Singles Chart. Oh no. Yahoo News reports that, even when the rest of the nation gets a C- grade for our education, Oklahoma tops even that.
