Originally posted by Jacqueline the Ripper For subjects as Hirstory and languages of course you get a statement along with the grade.
But on a subject like maths, chemistry, and physichs you can get a right or wrong, and a grade to tell you how right or wrong you were.
Passing or non passing grades can make hell of an improvement.
Originally posted by Toadborg But surely assessing a child on their teamwork skills and then having an official assessment for all time is unfair (is that what you are suggesting?)
Originally posted by Toadborg I agree. I think grades can be helpful but that they are not everything and too much emphasis is put on them.
As you say though in the real world they are not the msot important thing.........
Originally posted by Toadborg Mmmmm possibly but if I was hiring someone i wouldn't think that way...
Originally posted by monocrat Many of the third's world problems are self-inflicted.
Take Africa. It's not the West's fault that there has been a lot of political instabilty and war. The West does not also inspire African nations to possess corrupt governments.
The third world needs to help itself in addition to receiving aid from the West.
Originally posted by morrocan roll if you read through this entire thread you will see that deep down i'm right. no one realy gives a flying fuck! lip service. move your lips and voice your concerns and move on.

Originally posted by Jacqueline the Ripper Banning grades is so stupid.
Already we start too late with the grades, completely dismissing them is a total joke.
Originally posted by TellMeWhoAreYou Seriously i was a lazy fuck in school never did my homework but was good at the exams, wich resultet in good grades. Isn't it misleading?
Originally posted by Toadborg I very much doubt that the militants in the Congo are equipped primarily with US or UK weaponry, they may have indirectly acquired some but I doubt it was directly form companies based in the UK/US.
it is also a big leap to say the international arms trade is primarily basedin these two conutries can you back that up?
THe US/Uk aren't to blame fro everything.............
Originally posted by Simbelyne I read in the Guardian (it was quite a small article so I haven't been able to find it on their website) that a weapons company from the UK has been selling automatic rifle ammo magazines to factions fighting in the Congo. Maybe not the US/UK directly, but the weapons companies that they support with taxpayers money are.
