How One Arizona School Is Dealing With Its Low Letter Grade
Every year, schools across Arizona are assigned letter grades, from A to D, to tell us all how well they are performing.
It’s meant to be a measure of success for schools — but, what if you’re one of the schools on the bottom?
Lily Altavena, a reporter with the Arizona Republic, recently spent a week at Kino Junior High School in Mesa, one of the schools that got a D this year. Altavena explored how students, teachers and one very motivated principal are grappling with that bad grade. She joins The Show's Lauren Gilger to talk about it.
