RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
It's called "social promotion"; it is done in grades K-8, then suddenly in high school, the rules change and they have to actually pass classes to get required credits to graduate from high school. Apparently the schools got tired of parents bitching about kids who flunked because they obviously didn't meet the minimum standards for advancement, and just decided "screw it... promote everyone!"
