I just worry about the future psyche of our nation if it's true that a page full of red ink is frightening to students.
"A mix of red and blue, the color purple embodies red's sense of authority but also blue's association with serenity, making it a less negative and more constructive color for correcting student papers, color psychologists said. Purple calls attention to itself without being too aggressive. And because the color is linked to creativity and royalty, it is also more encouraging to students."
I am all for sensitivity and academic encouragement but am I the only one who finds this wimpy?
