We don"t believe in grades in my corp. Too much diff in age in one
class,maturity,health-all these can be a factor -also try to keep grades
fair and consistant for 550 students! They all should have a place to
be sucess ful in personal expression-not trying to figure out what the
art teacher wants for an A.
