I believe that Suli Break's video is the correct message that should be provided to today's youth. Just because people get poor grades or aren't able to complete their time in school, does not mean that someone isn't intelligent. A number or letter should not determine how smart a person is. A mother, Father, or guardian is forced to lie to their child when they ask " why do I have to take a test on this if I will never use it again? Have you ever used this?" And the parents will respond with a yes whether or not they have ever used it simply because they don't know either. These grades, numbers of nothingness are pushing kids to thinking they aren't good enough if they don't get a high enough grade. These grades are also something that colleges will see. These numbers, are determining our future. That's why I think Suli's video is an accurate perspective on education. kids love education but not school because grades that shouldn't be allowed to decide our intelligence and future.
