Better late than never: Accepting late work without penalty
from By: Brian Stack
The debate over whether to charge students a penalty for late work is not new to American education. For years, proponents have argued that a penalty is the best way to hold students accountable for meeting deadlines, a lifelong skill. Opponents argue that assigning penalties changes the true meaning of grades — to report academic achievement and progress. Submitting work late is a behavior, and invoking penalties is not an effective way to help adolescents change behavior.
