Geena Gold Star isn’t gonna like this!
Where was this kind of radical, new-age approach to education when I was growing up?!?
::: … that’s a rhetorical question … I grew up in Alabama … :::
I WON’T HAVE IT!!!!
We all had to bust some serious booty cramming for calculus and analyzing algebra, studying social science, debating the merits of debate and, well, generally doing all kinds of schooly, educationy type shit!
And for what?!?
So some pansy ass school administrators can come along a few years later with their high fallutin’ theories about the insignificance of gradiology and rankiliciousness?!?!?
The private Compass Rose Academy says it will focus instead on students’ “mastery of material and a portfolio that is updated weekly – but none of the familiar letters or numbers typically used to rate pupils”.
Sooooo, these brats are gonna be in class … gettin’ their learn on … but no grade? No gold star?? No nothing at the end of all their sacrifice, toil and exertified thinkification?!?
…. you do the work … you get evaluated … but you get nothing for it …..
I totally get it!
It’s so clear! I don’t know how I missed it …
1.) You do the work.
2.) Someone tells you what they think of the way you did the work.
3.) They may or may not let you know what they would have given you for the work.
NOTHING, that’s what!
Kind of like the way your merit raise worked out …
