"Deferred success" should replace the idea of failure for low-achieving pupils, a teachers' organisation will hear at its annual conference.
Deferred success... does anyone else think that is weird? Now what is deffered success you might ask?
If you engage a builder to build a 5-foot wall and he only does it 4' 9", you fetch him back.
"You don't demolish it and make him start all over again - he simply lays another course of bricks to 'top it up'.
"But failing an exam - especially if it involves repeating an entire year - does demolish and make you start again," said Mr Paxton.
I am at a loss here... so If a elementary, Middle, or high school student fails he only has to re do what he didn't pass on? Well then why even show up for classes... I mean just do a little here, a little there... I mean heck kids don't need structure.
The only sane thing about this.... is that this is mearly a proposal. I hope they have some degree of sanity and not pass this
