Individualism

Rain McKinnon, Staff

November 7, 2018

Individualism by definition is being yourself no matter what. No matter who you are with, no matter what you have been told, and no matter what situation you are in.

Our entire school system across the country is based on a letter grading system. Education in the United States is a very complex and important aspect in our society but yet we judge our students intellectual abilities on a simple 5 letter grading scale.
