  •  I think the problem is the pass/fail (5+ / 0-)

    system of high school graduation.  Because all it really does is to pigeon-hole you as a loser/not a loser.

    I went to school in the UK, and we did it very differently.  Simplified, you got a separate pass/fail on each of your classes.

    Therefore you do not have to pass something that just doesn't work for you in order to succeed.

    It also gives employers and colleges far more information about your particular strengths than saying you managed to graduate in a one-size-fits-all manner.
