OKAY, YOU CAN'T SAY THIS ISN'T SCIENTIFIC

It's right in the name, for cryin' out loud. "The science" says (gasp) Effort=Success in academics.

Not "inspiration" (got that, Bill Gates?)
Not "self esteem."
Not "learning strategies."
And not "critical thinking."

EFFORT.

Period. Full Stop.

1 Wait, you mean our kids have to work hard to get good grades?  That doesn't sound fair...

Society in general is just so in tune to the concept that you 'get what you deserve' as opposed to 'you get what you earn'.  Wake up grasshopper - the ants have it right!
