wow.
that's amazingly stupid.
i mean... wow.

so the way to get kids to learn better is to not tell them when they did something wrong. brilliant. I thought we Americans were supposed to be the morons with no child left behind.

I can see the motivation, but there has to be a better way than simply changing the vocabulary. Kids will see right through it. "Deferred success... yeah, right... That's a bunch of Bull*hit I *ucking failed." -- student. It'll probably do more damage than if you simply used honest vocabulary.
