Dr. Raymond Lorion: "An 'A' in what sense?"

At last night's BCPS meeting, a school board member asked a question about "A" grades. Dr. Lorion's* response drew a derisive laugh from the audience when he replied, "An 'A' in what sense?"
His response underscored the confusing nature of the Articulated Instruction Module. AIM, you see, has a three-letter grading scale where "A" is the lowest grade, not the highest.

You can't make this stuff up.

*Dean of Towson University's College of Education
