continuing silence


  When i was going to school, instructors would make class participation a contributing factor to one's overall grade. So, theoretically, even if you had perfect test scores and aced all your writing assignments, you might not receive the highest possible grade at the end of the semester because you were quiet in class. You would be penalized because you were not outspoken and opinionated during the academic year.
  Simply stated, starting at a very young age onward, we are discouraged from being silent.
