    i think we probably go to where we are, at least partially, due to overemphazing arbitrary benchmarks like grades over actually knowing the material

    I agree. But what parent is going to let their kid suffer over a principled stance?

    So academic "success" should be predicated on who has the parents who can apply the most pressure to a school to give their kids fake good grades?

    I mean, I'm not surprised that you'd be OK with that because it would work out well for you personally. But it's obviously no good for society.

    I think I told this story before. In 8th grade a teacher was gonna cane a bunch of us. It was at the end of school, and I don't even remember what we did. He had us wait in our classroom while he went away and did something, and by the time he got back there was almost no one left at school. This was instigated by one kid, but we all bought in. We said no. We told him you could, we won't fight you on it, and we'll take our beating; we'll take all our beatings for the rest of the year. But we know where your kids live, and this is our last year at this school. We'll make their lives in the neighborhood hell. They'll take every beating you give us, and and what are you gonna do about it? He let us go, and we were shitbags in his classes for the rest of the year.

    Also, let's be honest here. The most important thing about grades is them being high so you can get into a good college. I think it is totally understandable when parents fight for heir kids to have higher grades, because regardless of how a kid did on a math test, their entire future matters more than mastery of the material. We have a bad system right now, but how can you blame parents for wanting their kids to succeed in the job market?

    What you do and how you learn in grade school create habits that can affect the rest of your life. For example, teachers are taught not to compliment a successful student for being smart, but to compliment them for their hard work. There are plenty of studies that show that the "hard-working" kid will be more successful than the "smart" kid, because the smart kid will assume they can just coast and rely on their brains.

    It makes sense to want your kid to do well in school, but you should do so by getting them to work hard and to establish good habits. If your kid only has great grades because you bullied their teachers, then they're not going to be in a position to really take advantage of that opportunity. Even worse, you're potentially taking up a spot at that school that could've gone to a kid who actually deserved it.

    What does "deserved" mean when kids get in on non-academic qualifications like sports ability all the time? If a kid gets into a good college for throwing a ball well, I see nothing wrong with another kid getting in because his parents were persuasive.

    Not should. I think the current system sucks. But you have to work with what you have. Under the current system, your kid having high grades is the most important thing. That is really unfortunate. But it kind of is what it is.

    the last two high profile shootings (charleston and the virginia one) have both been too close for comfort. in both cases I was one degree of separation from someone involved. in the charleston shooting, the guy went to my high school and palled around with my younger brother (plus, the person who called the police for his first trespassing charge was my sister in law)

    I am personally on good terms with every member of my family, and the last time I got into a serious argument with one of them I was ill and foul tempered.

    However my three sisters and mother all have varying degrees of fireyness, and when two or more are in proximity for a lengthly period there is a chance a tiff will emerge.

    It doesn't last long, especially when the one not involved in the tiff is able to root out the inciting point, but it's interesting. Illness aside, I can't recall arguing with my brothers or father past the age of 15.
