@hgse Our grading system is rooted in a fixed mindset about IQ and a colonial system where teachers rank and evaluate. Traditional grades hold us back from creating student centered responsive classrooms. The future is #decentralized, students should accumulate attestations of skills.
HGSE alumnus Joe Feldman, Ed.M. '93 argues that we need to rethink grading in schools, noting that “Our grading must stop using points to reward or punish, but instead should teach students the connection between means of learning and the ends." https://t.co/9etN4nqnKD
It’s no longer a question of “should we?” It‘s more like “when will we?”
