PAUSD needs grade inflation

Yes, I am asking for more grade inflation! Why can't they distribute higher grades, yet still teach difficult material?
My older son had some teachers in other subjects who made it easy to earn "A"s or "B"s if they worked hard yet did not torture the students. And he learned a lot from those teachers.
With Mr. Toma as head of the math department, however, grade inflation in math will never occur. "They get what they deserve" would be his response.
I'll bet there is grade inflation at Castilleja and Menlo, which the reason parents send their children to those schools. A student told my daughter that Castilleja was easier than Paly. I heard there are counselors at those schools who contact colleges with names of students they recommend.
