Odd. IME in Texas, a "C" is always 75-79% (inclusive), a "D" 70-74% (inc.) and an "F" anything 69 and below (inc.), both at the secondary and at the tertiary levels. Texas schools in my experience also come down hard on grade inflation -- never experienced it until I came to Chicago. ========================================================================= Thomas Wier "I find it useful to meet my subjects personally, Dept. of Linguistics because our secret police don't get it right University of Chicago half the time." -- octogenarian Sheikh Zayed of 1010 E. 59th Street Abu Dhabi, to a French reporter.
