    "New Heights Show on Education" Are Grades Important to Learning?

    in Education

    There are some schools who are abandoning giving grades to students as they believe that a simple letter or number does not demonstrate a student’s learning ability. However, majority of the schools in the US and other countries in general use report cards as a primary means of measuring a child’s progress in school. Reason being is that many schools and teachers believe that grades measure the student’s understanding in a specific subject.


    Today’s we are discussing whether students should be given grades in school and whether they are important or not when it comes to learning.
