Bruh when one of the girls talked about math compared from middle school to HS it’s sooo true, I struggled in middle school because of the way they taught math and got b- and c and now in high school I take math honors and have an A+. I was just really in my head

One of my favorite episodes Jubilee. I'm in grad school now and relate more with latter, but this really shows how social factors, or being socially acceptable, influence how kids look at the world..automotive tech, taking care of my parents, parents never did college, mental health but wanting to make parents proud vs. "trying to get out", "working my ass off," "take education for granted", "successful". Really interesting!

kids like these are the reason I want to be a teacher. I want to help them develop life skills and find what they are passionate about. Grades are too heavily emphasized in our education.

As someone that's been to a private school in England, and now, a public school in Canada, I would love to see a Private School vs Public School video. Idk, I think it would be cool to see other's perspectives as a person that's been to both.

I agree with a lot of the points from both sides, but the I disagree with some of them on no matter how hard you try you can't always get good grades. No matter what, you can always study, get a tutor, or have someone teach it in a way you understand. Like there is always a way to get good grades

I am a straight A student. I spend my time outside of school working on school stuff and if I don’t have any work I spend that time stressing over my grades. I get 3 hours of sleep if I’m lucky because I spend my nights stressing, worrying, crying, and working. I then go to school exhausted but act like I’m not, I act like I didn’t spend my night crying and screaming, I act like I’m fine. All I ever think about is passing and I have no desire to go to school ever, yet my entire life revolves around school. I keep this issues to myself and let my own thoughts overtake me;let my fear of failure control me. I am a straight A student.

Being from the uk the concept of teachers determining your grade is so strange, here all exams are standardised nationally with external invigilators monitoring our exams, our teachers have nothing to do with our grades other than teaching us the content needed to sit the papers. All of our final papers are marked by external examiners and our final exam performance is the only thing that contributes to our grades. Grades are determined by normally distributing scores achieved nationally. The concept that homework can potentially change your grade is mind blowing to me. Considering how significantly our grades can impact our futures in the current system, the process over there seems way too arbitrary to be fair.

i find my opinion to be average but my youthful mindset helps the mile. meaning that as a young student i was always conflicted between my mediocre self and the contradicting overachieving thought process. being in a social environment i was scared of failure so my true intellectual ability was never portrayed “correctly.” mostly starting out middle school i had very average grades like a’s to c’s and stunned my mental growth. it definitely took me a while to achieve to the point i am currently at now, certainly i’m still young but now i have motivation. not just to please others but to achieve my eagerly explicit goals for myself. - but with knowing my mistakes aren’t the end of the world rather another lesson for me to learn. i hope that another student can find comfort in this, and seeks the confidence they deserve. ( ps as long as you try your best, you’ve done more then more then what a portion of students do. so continue on and shine. :) this sucks ass but i’m in a rush sorry 😅😂

Another aspect of having a good school experience is friendships you make. To me, they're a lot more important than letters. I do think their are several things that go into grades, not just a wrong answer. Another very important thing is to have a goal, no matter how crazy it is to keep yourself pushing. Just try your best to get to your goal.

That is so wrong! A teacher should want to give you good grade because you’re “friends” a teacher should do their job and wish to see all their students succeed without bias or favouritism

you need to do debates like this where you include other nations. I know full well that a person from the UK will give a different opinion on either side of the debate

ugh, these kids are so good. I have a little sister around their age and a lot of her friends and classmates are like this too (i work in the school district and do volunteer stuff so im often around students where i live) and its really nice how, as a collective, teens these days are really absorbing good messages more and more especially when i think about the kids i went to high school with.

If it's not a subject you enjoy you will not get good grades , you have to love the subject to do great , everyone has different strengths in different things , some better than others in different fields , you may do well but not amazing because your not dedicated enough and don't love it enough

Honestly if this conversation wasn't about grades you wouldn't be able to tell who was "flunking" and who had straight A's. They're all just people, like they say at the end, they all talk and act like normal teenagers and as much as grades were important to me personally, and still are, so I couldn't be comfortable failing, it really doesn't make a difference as to what kind of person you are. especially if your goals in life aren't academics related, it doesn't actually matter how well you do in school. the three flunking kids are still interesting, well rounded people who can have a good job one day

I love that in the end of the day they were all just students and they all got along and understood each other. I bet a lot of them there, despite their grades, would have the ability to be really good friends.
