No grade inflation at The Sun

December 01, 2009

I am very glad that Mike Preston is not the teacher in my children's classes! ("Mike Preston's report card," Nov. 30.) I'm not sure what scale he is grading on, but it seems that virtually everyone does badly on it. Even after an exciting win against a very good Pittsburgh Steelers team, no one gets an A.

That kind of grading scheme is demoralizing, as any good teacher knows. I propose Mr. Preston go get an education degree and not come back to The Sun until after he's graduated.James Potash, Baltimore
