Singal Quoted in Washington Post

Daniel Singal, professor of history, was quoted in the March 5 Washington Post article “The Deflation of Grade Inflation.” In the article, Singal said he does not use grades “to register whether kids are at or near accepted standards, but rather as a tool at my disposal to coax the best possible performance out of my students.” The article shows a study indicating that grades have not been inflated, and profiles high school students who work hard for their grades. This article was also printed in the Wichita Eagle, Wichita, Kan., on March 11.
