This article makes a nice use of James Nottingham's concept of the 'learning pit' to make the point that "school, as we know it is driven by grades as the main reflection of what students do, or do not, know.  What has resulted is a rat race of sorts where many kids and parents alike have their eye on the prize." It's nothing we haven't heard before, but I like the expression of it. Image.
