School has gotten harder, maybe even harder this year than last year. Currently the passing grade is 2.0, but in the past it was 1.5. This only changed in 2019. It would be beneficial to all students to change the passing grade back to 1.5. 

The school is torn down the middle, some students are remote -wether by choice or because of their own circumstances- while others are in-person. Remote students have a significant disadvantage. While teachers are trying their best to tend to both in-person and remote students, they just cant juggle it. Remote students get a lot less attention and information than the in person students. More work is being assigned and now the grading standards are changing again.

We are at a tough time in our world today, and because of these stressors teen’s mental and physical health is declining rapidly. Change is hard for anyone, and while we are coping with this change and the crazy things going on, we shouldn’t have to worry so much about school and our grades. (Not that school isn’t important, but students are worrying themselves sick)

School has gotten so much harder. Theres more work, shorter deadlines, and on top of that the entire school is continuously switching between remote and in person for the in person students. We have absolutely no consistency. 

I have watched my classmates give up on their classes because it simply seems impossible for us. We are struggling and we’re wearing thin. 

That is why im proposing that the passing grade gets moved back to 1.5. The same expectations cannot be kept for us when the entire situation and school system has changed.
