    Agreed. That is why, when I have time, I dutifully type out the answer that begins: IT DEPENDS!

    I also want to tell 'em to utilize the search engine. Read what we have talked about ad nauseum......

    But they are newbies and excited.......

    Hmmmmm. I've noticed some people cut and paste articles, and now I know why. The link above INITIALLY wrote about the program where if you donate $20 to the school fund you can add 10 points to any exam. The link now says they are canclling the program. The first article made the point really well that a grade at one school does NOT equal the same grade in another school.
