Why Marking Sucks

March 14, 2011

This poem is the truest account of the problem with marking in a system where learning is supposed to occur!

An excerpt –

I read the name at the top
and think of the young person whose effort this is.
Now all I see on the paper
is a face, crestfallen when I hand back what they attempted.
