Learning ability and outcomes

We are taught to trust school grades as representative of two things: the effort we put in and our natural capacity to learn. But grades are the results of many more factors. These factors includes negative stereotypes, outdated teaching methods, and learners' socio-economic situation.



What can you do?

Remember, grades don't tell the whole story. People do, know, and achieve a lot more than their grades suggest. Avoid judging people's abilities based on their performance in formal education.
