Having delivered humorous TEDx talks before, Chip decided to do something very different for this talk. Chip decided to talk about something that, frankly, ticks him off - the way teachers grade students in school. He believes our current grading system does more bad than good, so to solve that problem, Chip has a new system to replace it.
Chip Porter is a ninth-grade student at Mountain Brook Junior High in Mountain Brook, Alabama where he is a member of the MBJH TED-Ed Club.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
