"Senate President Wayne Niederhauser commented that he would have expected grades of D or F based on their socio-economic characteristics."

Based on what? A gut feeling! If Niederhauser is expecting bad grades, from a system he designed, for schools challenging socio-economic characteristics, isn't that an admission that his grading system (The Niederhauser Grading System) was intended to measure schools along socio-economic metrics? By the way, what is Niederhauser's previous profession or area of expertise that qualifies him to create a grading system in the first place?
