Unfortunately, this, is still NOWHERE N-E-A-R the real world that we’re living in here!!!
Not defined by the grades you made, so, how will your teachers decide, how to either pass, OR to fail you? If no grades were given, then, there would be NO way of measuring what you had, or hadn’t learned, and still need to work on, right???
Not defined by the grades you’d made, you’d NEVER allowed your scholastic performances, to get in the way of doing what you know you should, it’s just that you’re not yet in college, meaning that your parents are still taking responsibilities, for paying FOR your education, therefore, they would want to see the “payoffs” of their “hard work”.
Not defined by the grades you’d made, is it even possible? Of course N-O-T, because there is still NO way (not scientifically speaking, that is!!!), that performances IS measured, after all, we’re still all too focused, on the O-U-T-S-I-D-E, and so, what’s on the inside, hidden, suppressed, gets overlooked…………
