People who are focused on relative success have a curious understanding of “high academic standards.” They seem to use this term not in the context of students’ skill at formulating questions, the incisiveness of their thinking, or their ability to look at problems from multiple perspectives. Rather, it refers to how few high grades are given. Stringent grading, a more “rigorous” course or school, is assumed to be better not because it’s associated with other intellectual outcomes but because that’s how better is defined.
