Correct answers. Counted wrong

By Charlie Evans, Allen, TX

Every day teachers across the world count the questions answered correctly wrong. Just because it’s not "The Best" answer or it’s not the answer that they were looking for. Take a look at math. Say there is a question that you are suppose to find x in. what if you FOUND x but didn't find what x meant. Or if the question is asking for an opinion, teachers still tend to count it wrong. With vagueness and exact answers always wanted what about the other answers that do answer the question or do indeed do what was asked. It’s simply wrong of them. If an answer is correct then let it be correct. If the teachers say its wrong then they should have been more precise on what exactly they meant. Show them the truth, show them what’s just.
