Shouldn't schools do everything possible to create Results Only Learning Environments?

A Results Only Learning Environment (ROLE) is a progressive classroom that eliminates all traditional teaching methods -- worksheets, homework, tests and quizzes, rules and consequences and grades. These are replaced with year-long projects, collaboration, autonomy and narrative feedback over grades.

The results are students who are intrinsically motivated and who develop an almost uncanny thirst for learning.

Shouldn't be call for results-only learning worldwide?

    Uhm... have these types of system been successfully and formally applied anywhere? if not this statement is rather theoretical I think.

    If they have, and these are really their results, well its just a matter of proving it, divulging it and adopting it I think.
