The BBS has an amazing and sometimes irreversible ability to go quickly off topic. Fun though! ba ...
But students want to only know "practical knowledge(s)", which for some reason does not include discussing the materials from textbooks. Students are great at sitting and doing nothing. I had one student explain it this way -- "After Gaokao it doesn't matter what you learn because all that matters is the name of your school." Such a sick attitude IMO.
When I taught in China, I wasn't allowed to give a grade lower than a 60%.
This also reminds me of my friend's 6 year old son. I saw his report card, and there were three possible grades -- "excellent, good, average". Yep -- "average" is what we call BAD now. aiya.
