Teaser Tuesday #25

Source: Goodreads.
Bounce, Matthew Syed

Many educators have argued that lowering standards will boost the self-esteem of students and ultimately improve attainment. ... But we can now see that, however well-intentioned, it is corrosive as an educational creed.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be ReadingAnyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Thanks! I didn't find it surprising, really, but kind of worrying to see someone confirming it. :/
