Three Quarters of Maine Schools Receive a 'C' Grade or Less

Bangor - A controversial new grading system for Maine schools debuted today with some alarming statistics.
 
Three-quarters of schools statewide received a C grade or lower from the Maine Department of Education. Only ten high schools received an A letter grade.
 
Governor Paul Lepage says this ranking system is a way to hold schools accountable. However, the Maine Education Association is among the many who criticize the system's reliance on standardize tests.
 
The grades reflect a number of factors, including graduation rates, student achievement, and improvement.
