Middle School Honor Roll System Upsets Mother

Posted: Updated:

(WRIC)—A mother in Florida is fuming mad, all because her son made the honor roll at his middle school.  

Beth Tillack says she's upset because her son made the honor roll, even though he had a C and D on his report card. His report card even got sent home with a teacher's comment that said, "Good job," and a smiley face.

The middle school principal says the honor roll is based on a weighted GPA, meaning a student could conceivably earn an F and still make the honor roll if the rest of his or her grades were A's.
