Word of the Day: Deffered Success

Thursday, July 21, 2005

Just read this 'interesting' article from Reuters. According to the article, the word "fail" should be banned from use in British classrooms and replaced with the phrase "deferred success" to avoid demoralizing pupils, a group of teachers has proposed.

Members of the Professional Association of Teachers (PAT) argue that telling pupils they have failed can put them off learning for life. A spokesman for the group said it wanted to avoid labeling children. "We recognize that children do not necessarily achieve success first time," he said.

hmmm.... just imagine your report cards in the future, instead of an F you get a DS. Deferred Success? No lah... it's Darn Stupid! kekeke...
