What if that same teacher failed a literary or artistic genius just because he was bad at math. What if she attached to him the stigma of failure and stupidity because of his failure in just ONE area of academics? Studies have shown that schoolchildren's performance corresponds directly to the teacher's expectations.



Do you have any clues as to why America is producing functional illiterates with high school diplomas?

Yes, I have a clue. It is because people that are mentally retarded are put through classes such as "Phonebook 101", take tests with teachers who give them the answers, get High Honours and graduate with a full high school diploma. I've seen it happen first hand, and it is bullshit.

It made me think about how much weight a high school diploma actually pulls...hehe
Peace.

"Do you have any clues as to why America is producing functional illiterates with high school diplomas? "

that could be the subject of an entire book. If I answered that question it would turn into a ramble with no central focus. The school systems are even more fucked up than the national budget.

Try researching "social promotion" it seems that your worries about attaching stigma to students because they are incompetent in a subject falls in line with this kind of 'educational' strategy. If you insulate students from failure, you do them a disservice by neglecting to prepare them for life. It is better that they learn from their failures in school and learn to handle setbacks than to ignore them and not learn from them.
