New grading system passes senate vote, donned institutionalized racism by opponents

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KWTV)- A bill, passed by the state senate to revise the current A-through-F system used to grade schools, is being called institutionalized racism by its opponents.

"It is a failed system, inaccurately brands many of our schools with a scarlet letter, without offering them any resources by which to change," said House Minority Leader, Scott Inman.

According to KWTV, under the new grading system, students would be evaluated based on a point system, with more points given to minority students.

"Are you really comfortable with black children being told that you've got a lower bar?" asked Rep. Regina Goodwin, (D-Dist. 73).

The bill now goes to the desk of Governor Fallin for her approval.
