What can we do to change education?

My name is Hunter. I am a senior in High School and my english class recently watched this video.
This question was asked to me by a teacher to me back in 9th grade. His take on this was that there should not be an A - F grading scale because all kids do is shoot for an A. That's all. Nothing past that. All they need is an A to make everyone happy. I agree with this statement 100%. The problem is, how do we fix this? What scale can we use in order to make schooling more beneficial to future students? How do we get students to reach their full potential?

  • Apr 22 2013: Hi Hunter , In my opinion we should make education more intractive where students or teachers should enjoy what they are in to . Give more practicle knowladge and demos , exams also sholud include innovation , its not about only learning its about how they applyor relate their learning in real scenarios .We sholud make them think that their learning is not only for exams or taking grades . If they have fun then they will start innovating it .
