RE: FILING IS NOT LEARNING on so called "Teacher's Assistants" [LA Times Sept 12 | 4LAKids Sept 17)

A CSU admissions officer writes 4LAKids:

"Thanks for taking on the "teacher's aide" issue. It has been a problem for admissions officers for years. In addition to not preparing students for college, such "courses" tend to inflate GPAs and cause some to see students as having achieved more than what they may really have achieved in HS. We, of course, refigure the GPAs (often at considerable expense), and the resulting disparities can be substantial."
