Facing a barrage of questions and criticism, the State Board of Education voted Monday (Oct. 23) to take another look at its new system for grading schools.

The unanimous vote means that some schools which found themselves with preliminary grades of D and F could move up. That’s important because parents use these grades to make decisions about where to send their children to school.

It could also means more A grades. That, in turn, has financial implications, with those schools eligible for additional state dollars.
