Would you prefer your child be in a class with easy work and make top grades, or be in a more challenging class where he or she is exposed to more difficult and higher level content where they might earn Bs.

Learning and grades are not necessarily the same things. You can study for tests but then forget the material. Children retain information and learn in many different ways. I think it is important for me to understand how my child learns best and do all I can to support his best styles of learning. I send him to a private school where they do not give grades but do monitor and evaluate how much he has learned. We can see he is learning. It isn't your traditional classroom but I can see he is having fun and truly enjoys the process of taking in knew information and then sharing his newly acquired information with everyone around him. I don't think he would do as well in a traditional setting where he would loose his independence and ability to explore the subjects he is most interested in.
