(no subject)

I learned a cool new comic-book-geek word the other day: retcon.

Useful word, retcon. For example, the principal at XXX Elementary School strongly suggested I retcon my grade book so it will more closely correspond to the revised (upward) grades I was informed I needed to issue to the students.

In the interest of pre-empting potential parent complaints, you understand.

I don't yet know how admin plans to retcon the numbers to explain how such a high-performing student body is unable to pass the statewide assessment tests, leaving this school teetering on the brink of restructuring.
