What If Teachers Could No Longer Give B-Minuses?

In her bestselling book The Gift of Failure, Jessica Lahey tells the story of talking to parents who were unhappy because their child had received a B-minus.

The story hits home, as Lahey explores the perils of not letting children fail because it robs them of opportunities to learn and develop.

The vignette left me with a different question.

What if teachers couldn’t give students B-minuses?
