Computer Glitch Means Everyone Fails

Automation is certainly a good thing — but we all know computers have glitches. Aren’t humans supposed to at least do a casual reality check on some of these automated tasks? Apparently no one thought to bother at the North Peace Secondary School up in Canada, where a computer glitch resulted in every student receiving a transcript saying he or she had failed. These glitches do happen, but you would think that before these all got sent out, there would be at least some quality control with someone looking at a few of the transcripts and noticing that every single one of them was for a failing student.
