10 point grading system

So in the community over from me they are going to a 10 point grading system. So an A would be 90-100, B 80-90, etc.

There's two sides to this debate, and I understand both, honestly.

The pro side states that this is a common college grading system so it it helpful for children preparing to go into college to be familiar with that system.

The con side says that we are dumbing the kids down by making the grading scale easier.

What are your thoughts?

      Idk what the system was when I was I school but we had to have a 65 to be passing, it was ridiculous other schools in our area were 75
