    It’s call ACCOUNTABILITY. Work hard – get reward. Don’t work – fail. It not bad to fail. Benjamin Franklin failed at most of his inventions. It just made him work harder. Good teacher need to reward only when deserving.

    I wish and hope Loudoun County Public Schools follows suit. Good for FCPS for making this change. Making students more accountable for their actions and work. After all, like the article stated, in the working world, doing nothing at your job doesn’t pay you at 50% – it will eventually, if not sooner, pay you 0 and give you a bad reference for your next job.

    Very wise decision. If you don’t try, you don’t deserve any credit. Thank you for making an effort important. FCPS need to uphold their excellence in teaching and learning and continue to provide
    their students the best chance to succeed in the world following graduation.
