The face behind the “selling grades” fundraiser at Rosewood Middle School in Goldsboro, North Carolina is now retiring. The fundraiser would have allowed students to donate $20 to the school in exchange for 20 extra credit points. Susie Shepherd, the principal, stood behind the fundraiser insisting that the program was not actually selling grades, but merely raising money to support the school’s budget. According to today’s N&O, the school board has inactivated the program and Shepherd is set to retire on December 1. Quite the week for Rosewood Middle if you ask me.
