The news in Australia is that they are going to ban teachers from using the color red on grading of test's and homework. Their reasoning is that the color red might be offensive and make the child feel saddened or pained. The argument here is, by taking out the color and replacing with green(can't do blue because it's seen as depressing) you take out the whole entire purpose of correction. Look at it like this, when you see your work with a bunch of red markings and a big fat F at the top it hits a lot harder then if that big F was in some other color. The color red demands attention and should be used to teach children competition and purpose. If you take that away you are teaching them to be mild, to lose their drive. So I figured I'll ask you guys about this to. What do you all think about this? Which side do you agree with, or do you not give a dam about any of this.
