what do you think about our school system, I honestly don't think it is fair. They use grades to represent what you learnd and those grades are based on home work you turn in, not what you know. they could just test you at the end of each unit and base your grade on that and if you fail a subject you can study and retake it instead of putting a F on your transcript screwing your chances of getting in a four year college... what do you think??

I believe its a good situation we have going on here. 1st because with the grade situation going on we are able to monitor students during their lower times and peaks. It shows us what subjects are harder and what materials the school needs to "lamenize" so the students can easier comprehend the information given. I do not like the fact that if you get a horrible teacher and fail the class and then a college wont accept you because of that F.
