A front-page article on Sunday about new federal grants for education, which require most applicants to have earned a B average, referred imprecisely to Sarah Lawrence's policy on grades. While the school relies primarily on a system of evaluations written by faculty, it does record grades on transcripts for purposes such as graduate school admissions. It is not among institutions that forgo letter or numeric grades completely.
Is it weird I checked the corrections section everyday for this? It was a an experiment in fact-checking. I wanted to see how many days it would take to get this right. (4 days.)
