To me grades are completely unnecessary. To teachers I'm they are the epitome of school. Grades are teachers way of judging us, whether they realize it or not.
I think we should be graded in a way that we get the help and know exactly what we need to do to get better. I believe we need to transfer to a standards- based grading system and a "tutor". What I mean is we should get a graded on a proficiently scale and then a teacher should help you go through anything you didn't understand one child at a time. I believe grading needs to be totally revised.
