What if... compounding learning?

What if it we didn’t penalize (“fine”) students for failing assessments?

What if, instead, we treated failure as a “fee”?

If failure were tuition for learning, would students feel liberated to recognize each “deposit” as a contribution to learning that compounds—not just during their time in school, but throughout their entire lives?


Each Wednesday we share a “what if” scenario. Consider it a provocation rather than a suggestion.
