No Wonder Kids Are So Spoiled

I heard about this story today on the radio. A school district in Michigan is no longer giving students "F" grades because it makes them feel bad. To quote Rush Limbaugh, first it was no more red pens for grading because it threatened students' self esteem, and now no more "F" grades....we are setting our kids up for failure when they are adults. Think about more tag, no more dodge ball, no more "F" grades, awarding trophies for everyone regardless of place, allowing multiple simultaneous valedictorians at graduations, no more red pens.....the list just gets longer and longer each year. Soon we'll have kids dictating what subjects are taught, by who, and at what time. Awful....give the failing kids an "F" and stop coddling!
