Robinson, Sandra L.
Young Children, v52 n5 p86-87 Jul 1997
Addresses teachers' frustration in reconciling appropriate education for young children with the practice of grading to assess and report progress, contending that research on unreliability in grading and the efforts of committed parents and professionals are necessary to change the practice. Summarizes research suggesting that grading is unreliable, discourages students, and results in avoidance of certain subjects. (KB)
