3. Do you think that a no zero policy is appropriate?

A no zero policy is not appropriate. It sends the wrong message to our children and is unfair to those who have done the work. It does not prepare them for the realities of life.

A no zero policy is appropriate. The focus in schools should be on feedback, not marks.
