Students deserve honest grades, writes Reform K12.
Grades are not (and never have been) a measure of a child’s worth! If Johnny’s report card has a D in Mathematics, that doesn’t mean Johnny the human being is worth a D, it simply means that Johnny’s performance in the knowledge and skills of Mathematics is worth a D!
. . . Do your students a favor, and don’t do them any favors! Just do your best to teach them, and at the end of the term, give them the grades they earn. They’ll thank you later.
Well, they should thank you later.
