Generation Meh: Students Give Schools Middling Marks, Gallup Poll Finds

“If grade inflation is really trickling down from college to K–12, nobody told American students.

In a new Gallup poll, middle and high schoolers handed out just-okay marks to their own schools, assigning them a B-minus for average performance. About two-thirds of those surveyed granted their local school a grade of A (22 percent) or B (44 percent), while 34 percent rated them a C, D, or F as the 2022–23 school year came to a close.”

This summary originated from a story produced by Kevin Mahnken of The 74, a non-profit, independent news organization focused on education in America.
