The words and actions of these five studentsâtwo boys and three girls from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgroundsâunderscore the frustrations of being caught in a âgrade trapâ that pins future success to high grades and test scores. Their stories raise critical questions that are too important for parents, educators, and community leaders to ignore. Are schools cultivating an environment that promotes intellectual curiosity, cooperation, and integrity? Or are they fostering anxiety, deception, and hostility? Do todayâs schools inadvertently impede the very values they claim to embrace? Is the âsuccessâ that current assessment practices measure the kind of success we want for our children?
About: Follows five successful high school students in their often stressful journey through class work, grades, and tests, all of which contribute to the lacking performance of even our top schools.
