A kids trying hes damndest and getting a B is better then a kid getting an easy A.
No that’s wrong. If my kid got an A in final years of science and wasnt able to tell me the laws of thermodynamics I would take him out of school and put him in one that would actually teach him. unfortunately the real world doesn’t care about effort, only results. you should not get a uni degree on effort but by knowing the stuff and being able to show it. same for jobs, if I an cruising or I am struggling my boss doesn’t care to much (so long as I don’t burn out) only that the job gets done.
