1. Advocate for Educational Change in Post-Secondary Institutions in Canada

Assignment requirements in undergraduate courses offered at Canadian post-secondary institutions are allowed to be vague. This ambiguity can allow for grades to entirely reflect the instructor’s subjective views rather than having them categorized and explained in a structured manner. Without a structured system the instructor: has unprecedented control over marks, is not required to communicate the reason for a grade to the student, and can give a grade with no adherence to the course or subject being studied. Because of this issue, post-secondary institutions have been offering courses that do not follow systematic instruction, and in doing so have failed to comply with how education is defined.

5. Change Central Valley School District Grading Scale

Central Valley School district's grading scale is ridiculous. The bottom of an A is a 94% rather than the traditional 90%. In the western united states, this is a challenging grade scale to top. Colleges do not consider grading scales when accepting students. Many of my friends have chosen to enlist because Colleges won't accept them due to grades that would be a whole letter higher if the scale was changed.
