Kids Can't Fail, Even If They Try
My kids brought home their final report cards today. I just sat down and reviewed them. They both passed.
Of course, everyone passes today. They don't fail kids any more. A kid can do his very best to fail and still get promoted to the next grade. At some point between the time I was in primary school and today, they did away with failing.
I have vivid memories of the handful of kids who had to repeat the third grade. One year they were in our class, the next year they were a grade below us. Sometimes, kids failed and had to repeat a grade.
But not any more.
