Seattle Times letters to the editor

Seattle snow response

Mayor’s grading system flawed

When I was in school, the grading system was:

Grade A, superior.

Grade B, excellent.

Grade C, average.

Grade D, needs improvement.

Grade F, failing.

I realize that grade inflation is prevalent in some schools these days, but for Seattle’s mayor to elevate the grade he gives for the city’s snow-removal efforts from a D to a B seems an extreme case [“Seattle council blasts chaotic snow response,” seattletimes.com, Politics & Government, April 29]. And even after new information was dug up by The Times and included in the City Council’s report, his spokesman says, “We are going to stand by ‘needs improvement.’ ”

Which school system did Mayor Greg Nickels attend?

— Gordon Kramer, Seattle
