    Not too useful of a system, particularly if you cannot gauge how well the student is doing.

    Baba gounj You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    Schools will only now see how the students feels for advancements

    I feel the worst for the kids who work hard for those good grades. Talk about a disincentive.

    No because no one receives a grade.
    It will be all based on social media coverage.

    Now this story maybe long but it has a great finish.
    For those that are FOR socialism:

    TEACHER FAILS ENTIRE CLASS: An economics professor at a local college made a statement that she had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on this plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

    The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F.

    As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great , but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

    So why do you have a job? You can collect welfare benefits and live. Number 3 is idiotic and shows no understanding of how economics works.

    Yes the Communists running the Democrat party have championed 'modern monetary theory', money is not real and debt doesn't matter.

    I don't have a job.
    Have been unable to work for years.
    Now I just sit around watching other people do things for me.

    What does any government produce except for red tape and collecting taxes ?

    So you live off the work of others? By your worldview you should kill yourself so as not to receive something you didn’t work for.

    Have you never looked at the multiplier effect of government spending? $1 spent by the government can create $5 increase in GDP. Why do you hate math?

    I can only hope this was based on a true story.

    I figured as much it was copypasta from conservative Facebook groups or something.
