De Blasio’s DOE takes its war on learning to a new extreme with ‘no honor roll’ push

Boy, does Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Department of Education hate educational excellence. The latest: an effort to ban honor rolls.

As The Post’s Selim Algar reports, a new DOE guidance warns that “recognizing student excellence via honor rolls and class rank can be detrimental to learners who find it more difficult to reach academic success.” Even grades can negatively influence “future student performance.”

Instead, DOE’s geniuses want to emphasize “contributions to the school or wider community, and demonstrations of social justice and integrity.” Staff should “eliminate practices that penalize students who have been marginalized based on their race, culture, language and/or ability.” Ability?
