When an entire class is failing, the teacher sometimes saves face by “scaling” everyone’s grades so nobody flunks. Usually it benefits the worst-performming students, while the A students get nothing out of it. Well, in California, underperforming automakers — which means almost all of them — are pushing to get their failing EV marks “scaled” in a way, so they won’t have to blow as much money on their lackluster EV efforts or even buy credits from Tesla. Basically, they’re looking to get a passing grade without doing their homework. Will the teacher cave in and scale the grades?
