A school system can survive without grades only when all students, like  described Asians in the article "Why They Excel" by Fox Butterfield, along with  family and hard work values, treat highly the value of education. In the US,  where, unfortunately, the value of education in most cases is not the priority  number one, taking away a grade system would be a big mistake. In fact, the  grade system usually serves as the major and effective "knowledge booster" for  students. Grades stimulate and motivate students' academic performance.  Therefore, nonavailability of the grade system will only weaken students' believes  and attitudes towards education.  I can draw the comparison line with an example of the reward system and  system of punishment in the government. If you did something good - be  rewarded (get bonus at work, be in the honor list, etc), if you did something bad -  be punished by law (go to the jail,  be castigated, admonished and so on).  Unsurprisingly, it works. It helps our society to be in a stable and law-abiding

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
