I Got Over It…
Yes. I survived. I graduated from High School. I went to University for, like, a bazillion years! I don’t go to therapy.
What did I survive, exactly, you ask?
I survived having teachers mark my incorrect answers on tests, with a red “X”. OMG. I KNOW! Dude!
Why do I bring this up? Well, my daughter came home with a spelling test. There were two small green check marks next to two words that were spelled incorrectly (well actually, one word was spelled correctly but marked “wrong” but that not the issue…). So…like, in 20 years, are teachers and educators going to propose marking tests with red X’s because green check marks psychologically scar the children?? Who comes up with this crap??
