Another brick

Lately, when grading tests I started dreading a student doing TOO well. When I started a the first page perfect 100%, that 80% on the next page came as a relief.

This is because I previously got into trouble for not noticing a student was placed into a class of a too low level (the system confused her with her sister and spit out the wrong birthdate) - hey, I'm still new at this, okay? And I get little guidelines for things line baseline ability.

All I'm saying, even private academies are not free from the educational systems drawback of having to have everybody conform. There are mechanisms in place that form not only students in that way, but also the teachers.
