Are We Failing to Teach Our Students about Failure?
Weathersby, Dorothy Thompson
Tennessee Education, v9 n2 p3-8 Fall 1979
In a social system that rewards participation instead of quality, student response to academic failure is based on two basic assumptions: (1) participation should guarantee passing, and (2) academic failure equals failure as a person. There are implications for schools, students, staff, and society as a whole. (SB)
