Iran on June 20 shot down an unmanned $100 million U.S. drone it said invaded its airspace. The U.S. government said the drone was over international airspace. President Donald Trump said the U.S. was "cocked and loaded" to strike back, but upon learning 150 people would likely die he called off the attack. Iran's naval commander has warned Iranian forces will not hesitate to act again if Iranian airspace is violated, but U.S. military cyber forces disabled Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps computer systems that controlled its rocket and missile launchers. As tensions rise, the U.S. will announce a new round of sanctions on the country. What action should the U.S. take against Iran?

This is the second year that Texas has awarded letter grades to school districts and the first year for schools, replacing a previous pass/fail system. (Schools last year received numeric scores that could easily be translated into grades.) The grades are intended to represent students’ academic performance, based on standardized test scores and other factors such as graduation rates. What grade would you give the state school rating system?
