Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is pushing for a letter-grading system to evaluate the quality of the state's schools, echoing an approach that has been enacted by Republican leaders in other states.
"The desirable part of the system is that it is simple," he said. "But if they don't know why they're getting a D or C grade, they don't know what they've got to do to get better."
He said Virginia and other states should make sure that school administrators are well aware of the factors involved in evaluating and what it takes to raise their grades.
