that part wasn't completely clear,but i guess so. i just heard it on the news really quick.
the superintendant or principal of the school realized there were 'too many' students getting 1 or more D's a year, last year. they said this was about 2% of the students. (its a high school).
oh right the principal said, the students should learn 70% or more of the material. they have to get a 70% or better in the class.
afterwards the reporter talked to a couple of students. one said it was good, bc now if they get a bad grade on a test, they have 4 days to make it up.
