Does anyone else think this is fair? (school related) I will compare my GPA card and schedule to another student's classes and GPA (core classes and languages only): Me: Honors Integrated Math 3 College-in-High Schol Chemistry (You get a school grade and a college grade, with four college credits for successfuly completing the class) Honors Engligh 10 Honors World Cultures 10 German 2 gym no electives other than German and gym GPA = 3.490 I saw a classmate's report card (modes is for students who have trouble learning, most often, but not always, people who slack off and don't try; this fellow is one who doesn't try, he isn't naturally held down in anyway): Modes Inegrated Math 1 Modes English 10 Modes Bilology I know he doesn't take foreign languages and his World Cultures class must be a blocked class. Health assorted electives GPA = 4.000 (straight As, no extra points for taking more advanced classes) I get the honor roll, he gets highest honors. Is this in any way, shape or form fair? I'll describe the modes classes a little further, and I think modes are a great choice for people who have learning disablities, and they are great for anyone having serious trouble. Modes classes tend to be the smallest in the school, having from 15 to 20 people in each classroom. Two teachers are always present in the room. The class moves much slower than an academic or honors class, and each student can get special attention any time necassary. They also rarely get projects. Sometimes, they can go days without homework. This is good for those who need it. But if you slack off the prevoius year and sign up for modes, then get straight As, I think there's a problem. Do you agree that this is hardly fair to a student who gets at least an hour of homework per night and pushes themselves as hard as they can for good grades? We got our reports cards today, and this upsets me. EDIT: It's not that I mind doing worse than I normally do and only making the honor roll. I mind that others can slack off and get on highest.
