Most schools today function under either a letter or a percentage grade. These grades, though, only show an average, and provide little to no information about the students themselves; we're basically evaluating a student's academic career with a measly letter or number. This type of grading system gives parents little insight to how their child actually functions in school, distancing parents from a child's academic life. Overall, this system is highly flawed because it shows almost nothing about who the student is under a learning and working environment, and lacks focus on crucial human elements that can be applied into the real world, such as teamwork, creativeness, and problem solving. My proposal is this: instead of grading students we give them an evaluation revolving around how they find solutions to problems, work with other classmates, their roles as leaders and/or followers, their effort and engagement, their behavior, and their growth. This type of grading system would dramatically change the amount of trust and communication between schools and parents, as parents are now able to better understand their child in relation to school. Not only that, but we would be able to help students succeed in a better fashion because we'd have a better understanding of what is going on, and how we may be able to individually help the student in the best way possible. This grading system would also allow students to become better individuals because it encourages students to focus in these areas, which are becoming more and more crucial in modern society. Finally, this system would also allow students to understand where they are, who they are, and how they can become greater. In conclusion, this new grading system would allow teachers, parents, and students grasp a better understanding of a student's performance and themselves as a whole and guide them further to success based on this knowledge.
