Here is an age-old debate for you.
How much should a student's grade reflect their knowledge and skills in the subject area. All of it? Almost all of it?
Or should a teacher give extra credit for trying, for working hard etc?
Or should good behavior be part of the grade?
Or should the grade be strictly an academic issue with behavior and work ethic recorded on a grade card somewhere else?
What SHOULD a grade represent?
Here is an interesting Washington Post article on the issue.
The Wawascene was created by Dr. Mark Stock, former Superintendent of the Wawasee Community School Corporation. Due to its local popularity, Dr. Stock has left the blog site to future Wawasee administrators.
