School Grades Doesn't Mean Much

Parents put a lot of emphasis on their child’s grades. They somehow associate the grade with how successful the child will be at life. Whether or not the child passed English or Math or any other subject doesn’t determine how successful he’ll be in life.

Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook, is a college dropout… and he’s still done pretty good for himself.

“Success is peace of mind that is the direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.”
-Jamison Wooden

The grade a child gets on a paper is not as important as the effort he put towards it. A child that did a A+ without working is not in a better position than the one who worked hard for his C. Later in life, it's the work ethic that will be the most valued. I worked with Grade A students as well as Grade C ones and I can't really tell the difference between the 2 but I can certainly tell who works harder than the other.
