Book Synopsis
There is no official "American Grading System" for high school students. As a result, most American high school students get burned along the way by unfair or unfounded grades. In fact, America's 200-year-old grading process is outdated, haphazard, and subjective and has been eroding American education. Yet grades are still commonly used to control students' access to so many of the best educational and career opportunities.
This book, by one of America's foremost educational strategists, provides a guide for students and involved parents wanting to help their kids to navigate their schools' outdated reliance on grading to make sure that their kids are not denied opportunities as a result of archaic and often arbitrary practices. The book provides advice and how-to instructions for students, savvy parents who've attended U.S. high schools, and savvy parents who are totally unfamiliar with American secondary education.
