Very interesting article about women and men, in school and in the office.
As an overachieving female in school this opinion piece really resonated with me. Even as an adult taking a foreign language class from a local community college I decided I could not do my very best and so I chose Pass/Fail for my grade. My teacher took me aside at the end of the course and said that I had earned an A in the class and was confused why I had chosen Pass/Fail. I had thought my efforts were not up to the best I could do and was afraid of failure.
I loved this quote from the piece, "A colleague of mine likes to remind teenagers that in classes where any score above 90 counts as an A, the difference between a 91 and a 99 is a life."
