SCHOLASTIC B

 

Grade A+ A B+ B C

Assessment will be recorded once a year.

 

A system of education and examination that teaches members of disadvantaged groups the requisite problem solving and analytical skills needed by the job market is vital. Memorizing and regurgitating textbooks is not a skill needed by the job market. An exam system that encourages this type of ‘learning’ snuffs out creativity. To teach skills and creative excellence, is the way- perhaps the only sustainable way- toward real equality’.
