Education and Rewarding the Wrong Things

I find education... frustrating. It feels like two things are very common:

  • Taking identified concerns and going into territory far beyond fair or reasonable to address them
  • Putting undue emphasis on proxy measurements for good education and causing corruption of the system to achieve those measurements

There is research to be had, but it seems as though educational management either listens to just what they want to hear, or go with what's fashionable, or go with something that pays mere lip service to the problem.

Take no-fail policies - there has been research available for a couple of decades now.
