Mediocre students against straight-A students

All parents dream of seeing their beloved child grow up clever and competent, make a good career and achieve success. Many believe that in order to achieve these goals it is indispensable to do well at school or otherwise none of this will come true. Meanwhile, leading educators and sociologists unanimously claim that high performance at school does not guarantee that your child will achieve equally good results in adult life. Moreover, corresponding studies have shown that it is the mediocre students who find their vocation more often, make a career quicker, get a bigger salary etc.

Some people may find this statement very doubtful. But in reality, everything is very simple and logical. The school curriculum is designed so that only the student who performs the tasks correctly and presents them "as expected", reads all the assigned literary works, writes "right" essays etc., receives the highest score. As a result, after years of studying at school, society gets a "perfect subordinate" who thoroughly and competently performs tasks, clearly defined by someone else. Moreover, for many of the "straight-A students" bad appraisal of their work is a major blow to their self-esteem and sometimes a cause for stress. Mediocre students are an entirely different case: they didn’t study one thing thoroughly, didn’t do the other at all, but embellished their answer a bit and thus had bluffed it out - but what organizational skills (sports achievements, musical talent, the ability to draw, etc.) they possess! Mediocre students learn to make choices quickly and to find creative solutions since childhood; they accept their failures easier and not prone to self-criticism. Therefore, as adults, mediocre students easily adapt to the conditions of life, they are often full of unconventional ideas and are not afraid to put them into action. More often it is mediocre students that become "bosses" whose subordinates are yesterday’s A-graders.

If you are still in doubt, conduct a simple experiment. Think about people you know and whom you personally consider successful, and then think about how they performed at school. In most cases, you will find a real confirmation of all that has been stated above.
