And now my state officially decided that there will be no more grades in elementary school, because they could “demotivate” kids. Also no more secondary school recommendations, meaning not only will parents have no idea how well their kids are doing, but they’ll also further mess up our schools by sending kids on a secondary school that absolutely doesn’t fit them.
This is what happens when you put the left in charge of education. Feelgood-ism and teaching that effort is a bad thing. What a life lesson for kids to learn, that it doesn’t matter what they do or how well they do it, because in the end everyone gets a medal, just so nobody feels left out. That’s exactly the equality they want, where in the end, everybody has the same no matter how well they actually did, and claiming grades could make kids lose their motivation is completely disregarding the fact there is also a motivation to do well, and to do better than before, to actually improve oneself instead of being told to be content with your results because they actually don’t matter.
Policies like this will raise a generation with little idea of how the world works, who won’t even want to try by demand a medal anyway. But fear not, leftist government will be there to ‘level’ any future playing field for them. They already fused two of the three kinds of secondary schools in the name of equality, the top one will be the next to go so no kid will dare to get rewarded for trying harder and being smarter than others. The nightmare never ends, only this time, it might cost our children their future.
Have fun having a system as bad as America’s. In elementary school, there’s a “check” or “check +” at best to determine whether or not your kid’s an idiot.
Yup, that’s the left for you. Competition is eeevul.
You just know that they’re going to come for the gymnasium (the highest of the formerly 3 secondary school types) next to merge it with the rest, and then we’ll finally have something as useless as American high school.
