I certainly don't intend to hurt anyone's feelings. Another thread got me thinking about education. I didn't want to derail the thread. We have a problem in American education that stems from learning not being the focus of education. The almighty grade is the focus for most whether it be the good student striving for the most points or a teacher using points to curb behavior or be a consequence. Is it possible to change the conversation so it focuses on learning and how actions impact learning. This moght beva better general education topic, but it seemed to fit better here at this time.
