Teenagers grade schools.
Earlier this year, the Gallup organization asked teens to grade their schools, technology at school, extracurricular activities, and the first teacher they had that morning.
Only 16 percent of teens gave their school A's, with 37 percent grading their schools with B's and 33 percent grading their schools with C's.
And 34 percent gave the first teacher an A, while 35 percent gave the teacher a B and 19 percent gave a C.
Differences in grades appeared to depend on what the teens thought of themselves, such as how healthy or academically successful they were. For example, 41 percent of teens who considered themselves "above-average" gave A's to their teachers versus 28 percent of "average" or "below-average" teens giving A's.
