I raised the topic of grade deflation in IUFSD at the most recent board meeting.

Irvington should make sure our kids’ grades are on par with those of their peers in other schools. The idea that admissions counselors ‘correct’ for harsh grading in schools with high-achieving kids is a myth. All things being equal, the student from the school with grade inflation beats the student from the school with ‘tough grading.’
