F. Everybody is a winner and thus should be handed a degree as long as they bribed the school with enough money.

High school, 3.5+ if you want to go to college. If not doesn't really matter. Not like a high school diploma really opens any doors these days. You could just get a GED/equivalency if it's not your thing and it wouldn't matter.

College is a little different. My major was weighted 2.3. GE classes and whatnot brought up but it was fairly honesty grading. Getting an A was actually exceptional and a C average, whereas high school it's more exceptional to get a C than an A.

C+ We should raise our standards, not lower them. We should strengthen are weakest links, not weaken our strongest to try and create some false sense of equality.

Anything less, and I definitely think it should be a joint effort on teachers, guardians and students to figure out what the problem is and find a solution so that student can graduate to the next grade fully prepared. Best solutions is a study buddy system, but sadly, so many would rather just pass the student unprepared to the next grade.

General Education, no student should ever receive anything below a B.

C minimum. Just enough to get by. No need to over exert yourself. It's just school, not everything they teach is true, necessary or applicable to the real world.

OMG NOT C+. It's the worst grade in the world. This standard would scar kids for life.

C grades. Below that usually means a fail in my country.
