An Orange County, CA high school has come under fire from state education officials after they issued student ID cards that are color-coded based on their standardized tests scores, the Orange County Register reported.
At John F. Kennedy high school, the cards come in three colors: Black, the highest level, gold, the second best, and white ... the worst.
The cards do more than just announce students' testing levels, however. The gold and black cards also give students access to a variety of discounts and campus privileges, while the white cards give none.
